Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has been asked by Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, to manufacture and install 15 LED displays throughout the venue, including an eight-display centerhung system.

Scott Preston, general manager of Mandalay Bay Events Center said “Guest experience was a driving focus during the entire renovation process. We have created a more comfortable and immersive experience where every fan feels a part of the action. As Mandalay Bay continues to be a center of the Las Vegas entertainment universe, we look forward to hosting the next generation of sports and entertainment programming in the Events Center.”

Each of the four main centerhung LED video displays measure approximately 11.5 feet high by 18 feet wide. In each corner of the centerhung, a video display is installed to provide a full 360-degree visual experience. All eight displays feature 6-millimeter line spacing.

Rusty Lenners, Daktronics sales representative told us “We are very excited to be a part of the recent improvements at Mandalay Bay Events Center. The entire MGM Resorts International team was fantastic to work with throughout this process and we look forward to the impact the new centerhung system and auxiliary displays will have on patrons attending events at Mandalay Bay Events Center.”

The main centerhung displays are capable of variable content zoning allowing each display to show one large image or to be divided into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replay, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

Additionally, two LED ribbon displays and five courtside LED scorer’s tables were installed inside the event center. Mounted to the seating fascia, the two ribbon displays each measure 2 feet high by 182 feet long and feature 15-millimeter line spacing. Each of the five scorer’s tables measures 2 feet high by 9.5 feet wide and feature 6-millimeter line spacing.

These displays help immerse fans in the event experience by sharing additional animations, graphics and statistics while also offering sponsors the opportunity to share their messaging throughout events.

Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is set on 120 lush acres featuring Mandalay Bay Beach, a tropical pool paradise with real sand. The newly renovated Mandalay Bay Events Center, award-winning restaurants, exhilarating entertainment, unique shopping, Shark Reef Aquarium and the recently expanded 2-million-square-foot Mandalay Bay Convention Center combine to make Mandalay Bay a distinctive Las Vegas resort destination.
