26 March 2018|Tottenham Hotspur
The Club has selected Daktronics to provide the LED video displays for its new stadium.
The Club is committed to driving innovation and utilising modern technology in order to deliver an unrivalled fan experience at its 62,062-seater stadium, set to open later this year, and this supplier agreement with Daktronics will underline this pledge.
As part of the relationship, Daktronics will supply four bespoke main LED video displays for the stadium bowl totalling more than 1,000 square metres. This includes two screens in the iconic, single tier 17,500-capacity South Stand, each measuring 325 square metres – making them the largest screens in any stadium in Western Europe and among the biggest in the world.
Two additional screens in the North Stand will each measure 190.7 square metres, while two LED video displays will feature on the South West and South East façades, fitted on the exterior of the stadium, each measuring 178.9 square metres.
Every main display will feature 13HD pixel layouts to bring excellent image clarity and contrast for everyone that visits the stadium.
The stadium bowl will also include three tiers of digital ribbon – a first for any European stadium. The upper and middle tier ribbons will run from the East to West Stands through the North Stand, measuring 387 metres and 348 metres long respectively, while the suite-tier ribbon will be split into two runs along the East and West Stands, measuring 122 metres long on the East Stand and 105 metres long on the West.
Matthew Collecott, Director of Operations, Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We are pleased to add Daktronics to our roster of world-leading suppliers, as specialists in large LED video displays and digital ribbon boards. We have pushed them to deliver something that will truly set us apart and these installations will play a significant role as part of our commitment to setting a new standard in fan experience in sports and entertainment.”
Daktronics President and Chief Executive Officer Reece Kurtenbach said: “We’re extremely proud to partner with one of the most storied football clubs in England. The video displays and LED technology in this stadium are sure to help enhance the atmosphere for fans and players alike. We’re excited to see the stadium open later this year.”
