The main hub of the 180,000-square-foot facility is a reconfigurable 3,100-seat arena and gaming hall that hosts live entertainment such as concerts, conferences, esports tournaments, robotics competitions, and live sporting events. The arena features a trio of truss-mounted LED screens from SNA Displays’ BOLD™ Interior line of video display technology. The primary display is 19'8" tall by 34'6" wide and is flanked by twin 13'2" x 26'3" LED screens. All three displays feature a 3.9 mm pixel pitch.
Other key digital signage throughout the new venue includes several extremely tight-pitch outdoor LED displays. A pair of oversized, double-sided LED kiosks with a 2.9 mm pixel pitch are the tightest-pitch EMPIRE™ Exterior LED displays on the market, and an outdoor-rated 7'4" x 14' box office LED display features a 3.9 mm pitch. Additionally, there are several 10 mm exterior displays, including an 11'10" x 20' screen that wraps around the building’s east corner and more than 250 linear feet of LED ribbon displays along the exterior of the façade. Combined, the Tech Port Center processes approximately 11 million pixels of LED canvas.
Digital Dreams provided display installation services for the project.
