Daktronics Delivers Narrow Pixel Pitch Video Wall for University of Wisconsin

To bring new visual aspects to Camp Randall Stadium, Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota, in conjunction with JP Cullen, a Wisconsin-based commercial construction company, continued a long-term partnership with the University of Wisconsin (UW ) to fabricate and install a new LED video wall in a club area and ribbon displays in the seating bowl in Madison, Wisconsin. The project was completed and installed before the start of the college football season this fall.

Jeremy Shecterle, JP Cullen, said “Daktronics has been a great partner and has continually helped provide options to create different experiences for seatholders. Procurement, placement and execution went smoothly and we are ready for Game Day.

Jason King, UW Athleticsadded: “When we designed each separate club space, we looked for unique opportunities for a ‘Wow’ moment. In Victory Hall, the video wall definitely delivered. Anyone who has seen the space so far were extremely impressed.

The new Champions Club narrow pixel pitch display features 1.9 millimeter pixel pitch and measures nearly 7 feet high by 36 feet wide with pixel dimensions of 1080 high by 5760 wide. This delivers crisp, clear images to the audience up to a few meters from the display face.

“The great thing about this screen is that it’s three Full HD screens wide so the university can display three separate streams of high-quality content,” said Joey Hulsebus, Daktronics Sales Representative. “It’s also versatile enough that they can display a large image across the entire screen, or they can display nine different feeds to present a wealth of information at once. It’s a great showcase of what this type of product is capable of and we’re extremely excited to partner with the University of Wisconsin and JP Cullen on this project.

Although the screen can display multiple video feeds, it can also be integrated with the game information and rating system to display all the stats and graphics that engage the audience with the live action happening on the ground.

The entire project included other aspects of LED technology throughout the stadium, including new ribbon displays along the fascia in the south end area.
