25 Jan 2016

Fans of the NBA Sacremento Kings have crystal clear views of the game later this year, with Panasonic Enterprise Solutions installing the largest screens and highest resolution in the NBA.

The first-ever 4K ultra HD center hung board, at the Golden 1 Center opening in October in downtown Sacramento, totals more than 6100 square feet, and features the largest screens in the league.

Vivek Randive, Sacremento Kings owner and chairman, says the installation of the center-hung board will revolutionise how fans consume the game, providing an unmatched viewing experience.

The four-screen display will include two sideline screens  that are more than five-times larger than the screens currently in use.

The screens use the latest in LED technology, totalling more than 32 million piexels across the four screens, providing fans with crystal clear views of immediate replays vai 4K ultra HD.

At more than 84 feet in length, the baord will extend nearly baseline to baseline – longer than the average length of an 18-wheeler truck. The ribbon featured at the top of the board will be six foot, three inches, with the main screens more than 44 foot wide and more than 24 foot tool.

Jim Doyle, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company president, says there are ‘endless’ possibilities to help enhance the experience throughout the arena.

“We look forward to delivering the most cutting-edge technology to impress and amaze all who enter Golden 1 Center,” Doyle says.

The Golden 1 Center display is part of a wider project to enrich the fan experience with interactive display technologies throughout downtown Sacremento.

Twenty-five foot custom LED screens will welcome fans entering the arena, featuring fan generated content and event information, while more than 600 HD video displays will be showcased throughout Golden 1 Center concourses,clubs and suites.

More than 1500 feet of LED ribbon boards will be featured in the arena bowl providing real-time information, including advanced statistics and aggregated social media content.
