Denver Nuggets’ Pepsi Center Set to Install State-of-the-Art Video Scoreboard

By Community | July 12, 2013

Pepsi Center in Colorado is set to install a next-generation video scoreboard and sound system to enhance fan experience.

The new video board is set to be the largest of its kind in the world and will provide patrons an unparalleled view of the action at Denver Nuggets, clinic Colorado Avalanche and Colorado Mammoth home games, unhealthy as well as all other Pepsi Center sporting events.

The new scoreboard is the crown jewel of a continued arena-wide improvement project that began in 2012 with the installation of over 300 new HD flat panel screens throughout the concourses; restaurants and suites; upgraded seating in the lower and club levels; the new Land Rover Denver Club and the addition of 4 ancillary LED display boards in each of the four corners of the upper level. The new loudspeakers consist of six line arrays that are 20 feet high and include four subwoofers mounted behind each array. Each loudspeaker in the array has a maximum power handling capability of 1,600 watts and each subwoofer has a maximum power handling capability of 2,400 watts.

“We are excited to bring a new standard of excellence to our fans’ experience when attending events at Pepsi Center,” said Josh Kroenke, President of the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche. “The new scoreboard, sound system and the technological improvements that come with each installation will provide fans with one of the best audiovisual presentations in all of sports.”

Kroenke Sports & Entertainment CEO Jim Martin added: “It is our goal to provide the best fan experience in all of sports and entertainment, and the new improvements to Pepsi Center will undoubtedly place it among the most state-of-the-art venues in the United States.”

The new scoreboard will be manufactured and installed by Daktronics of Brookings, SD, and will feature one of the largest square footage viewing areas of any indoor scoreboard currently used in the world. A new HD production control facility for the scoreboard is being installed by Diversified Systems of Santa Clara, CA and designed by WJHW. The scoreboard will contain four large screens—two will face the center seating areas, measuring approximately 27’ high by 48’ long, and two will face each end of the seating bowl, measuring approximately 21’ high by 25’ wide. The new display boards will contain over 8.5 million pixels in total. Fans seated along the center areas will face a 1080p full HD screen that stretches from 3-point line to 3-point line for basketball, and spans both blue lines for hockey.
