Daktronics and Loyola University Partner for New LED Displays

Four LED video displays, each approximately 9.5 feet high and 15.5 feet wide, were installed in each corner of the court in Reitz Arena.

Reitz Arena holds 2,100 spectators and is home to Loyola's basketball and volleyball teams. The displays feature variable content zoning which allows the operator to show a large picture that uses the entire display or smaller zones in any arrangement for live video, instant replays, real-time statistics, scores, advertisements and animations.
