Super Bowl Features Super Tech: 83,500 Square Feet of Daktronics’ LED displays at Mercedes-Benz Stadium
Super Bowl 53 welcomed over 70,000 fans to the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta to witness the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams battle it out on February 3rd, 2019. Although the outcome of the game may have been disheartening for Rams fans, the wow factor of Daktronics 16 displays and over 83,500 square feet of LED didn’t disappoint anyone who visited the stadium, or the millions watching from home, on Super Bowl Sunday.
Daktronics Mercedes-Benz Stadium presence includes the installation of the world’s largest video scoreboard, the Halo. The immense, attention-grabbing display measures 58 feet high by 1,075 feet round and is taller than the Eiffel Tower rolled out end to end. The halo video boards are all outdoor rated, so that if the retractable roof is open, the displays will be able to withstand inclement weather conditions.
In addition to the Halo, a massive mega column display spanning ten stories high, hung from the ceiling of the stadium for a total of over 6,700 square feet of continuous LED display. A 70-foot wide curved triangular feather wall display graces the main concourse of the stadium, 3,100 linear feet of ribbon displays adorn the front of the stadium seating, and narrow pixel pitch displays enhance the club areas.
As a not so small aside to the amazing tech display at the Mercdes-Benz Stadium, as huge Patriots fans, we’d just like to add that we’re very proud of our team for their big win. Go Pats!
