Daktronics Redesigned Scorers Tables Make NBA Debut in Orlando
Daktronics’ redesigned digital scorer’s tables have made their NBA debut. In partnership with Van Wagner Dorna USA, Daktronics has supplied the Orlando Magic’s Amway Arena with five new LED scorer’s tables.
The tables were modified to meet the NBA’s player safety requirements. Gas-loaded springs are now incorporated into the updated design to allow the entire face of the display to “give” should a player or referee run or bump into the display.
“We feel that LED technology does indeed provide a better in-venue experience for fans with its incredible wide-angle visibility, while also showing very well for the television audience,” said Steve Griggs, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Magic. “And our corporate partners love the flexibility to change messages quickly and easily, as well as the potential for even greater engagement with fans. We are looking forward to having this kind of display integrated with the rest of the Daktronics LED system in the new building next season.”
The tables are configured into a single courtside display measuring approximately 48 feet wide and display crowd prompts, event information, sponsor messages, real-time statistics, and out-of-game scores.
