Daktronics Installs Largest European LED Display in London

Daktronics has installed a new 1,128m² curved LED display at the Olympic Stadium which is now being used by West Ham football club as well as for other sports and entertainment. The display is 13.9 metres high by 81.2 metres and has a 15mm pitch. The display has high brightness for outdoor clarity.

Ewan Prentice, Daktronics sales representative said “Daktronics designed the uniquely-angled display to appear horizontal along the top and bottom and to appear vertical at each end. Hours and hours of engineering expertise will result in a truly unique outcome which Daktronics, partners and stadium stakeholders can be very proud of, and further highlights Daktronics as the world leader in LED display solutions”.

Daktronics appointed long-term partner, EDS, who was responsible for the fabrication and installation of the strengthening and secondary steel as well as the display itself. The installation uses a Daktronics Venus Pro control suite.
