Daktronics Installs Halo of Technology in Atlanta
Daktronics is on the cutting-edge of LED technology in many applications from sports to Times Square and everything in between. Most recently, Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, unveiled the world’s largest LED video scoreboard dubbed the Halo. This display is built into the roof’s architecture above the playing field and measures approximately 58 feet high by 1,075 feet in circumference. It totals roughly 62,000 square feet and is comprised of 37.1 million LEDs.
In and around Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Daktronics installed 16 LED displays for a total of 83,500 square feet of digital space – more than any stadium in the world.
Rich McKay, President of AMB Sports & Entertainment, the owner’s group involved in the stadium project, commented on Daktronics and the project. “Daktronics is in a league of their own. We selected to work with them because of their dependability known throughout the industry as well as the creativity they bring in crafting something that has never been done before.”
Daktronics designed custom curved cabinets to house the 43,000 LED modules that make up the Halo. A total of 616 cabinets were individually lifted into place to complete the installation of the display. Daktronics also engineered an alternative use of power supplies to reduce the overall weight of the display to create less of a load for the roof to support.
