We’re rapidly approaching the opening date for the Little Caesars Arena, which is now just a couple months away. The finishing touches are going up, and it’s looking different daily. Last week, we saw what naming rights can buy—a giant Little Caesar on the roof of the arena. Now inside, we have a look at the giant scoreboard everyone will be looking at above the arena floor.
According to Olympia, the 5,100-square-foot centerhung scoreboard by Daktronics will be the largest in the NHL. The wraparound system will create a 360-degree viewing experience. The system will have e a continuous, seamless display connecting all four sides each side will measure appx. 28 feet high by 43.5 feet wide. The high res displays will have variable content zoning, allowing each side to show one large image or be divided into multiple sections showing live video, instant replay, game statistics and information, animations and graphics, or sponsorship messages. The centerhung system will also have four under-mount displays for fans sitting closer.
45 LED displays coming in at over 13,500 square feet will be installed in and around the new arena.
Seven exterior displays, including a 900-square-foot display, will go up in the plazas around the arena.
Here’s a few more peeks inside and around the arena, as it gets ready for its September opening.
