World’s largest LED halo leads to record sales at Daktronics

Daktronics passed the $800 million mark in orders in a single fiscal year for the first time in its history, thanks to major projects including LA Clippers’ massive Intuit Dome Halo Board.

The Intuit Dome Halo Board is the largest double-sided halo display ever installed in an arena – a near-complete, one-acre scoreboard in California that is slated to open in 2024 as the Clippers’ new home.

Daktronics is currently expanding its manufacturing capabilities across multiple locations to meet the growing demand for LED displays. This includes doubling the company’s ability to supply surface-mount device (SMD) LED product lines and increasing production space at its Brookings, South Dakota, factory. 90,000 square feet.

The Intuit Dome Halo board will be one of the first projects to use Brookings’ new assembly line. The array will feature approximately 38,375 square feet (or over 3,500 m²) of digital canvas, over 3,592 60-inch TVs and over 233 million LEDs.

Clippers specifically designed and engineered the Intuit Dome roof to accommodate the unique Halo Board, maximizing sightlines from all seats and prioritizing the viewing experience from the upper bowl seats.

The indoor halo display will be 32 feet high by 623 feet in circumference (approximately 10m x 190m) and the outdoor halo display will be 28 feet high by 661 feet in circumference (approximately 8.5m x 200m), which makes the full halo proportionally more balanced than the others. The entire halo will be 4K and feature a tight 3.9 millimeter pixel layout.

Additional screens located inside and outside the Intuit Dome will inform and connect with the audience as they arrive until they are seated for the main event. Large displays in the lobby will draw fans in and a giant screen 23 feet high by 190 feet wide will overlook the outdoor basketball court on The Plaza.

Tape displays will be installed along the front of the seats and inside the entrances to the seat bowl, and scorer tables and basket post displays will also add to the game day experience, while by providing opportunities to highlight sponsors throughout the events.
