City of Sioux Falls officials held a news conference Tuesday to announce some new fan enhancements in the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. The announcement included a comprehensive video display system to increase opportunities to view the action and also state-of-the-art lighting.

The City secured an integrated LED video display system that will be designed, manufactured, and installed by Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota. The complete super system consists of a center-hung scoreboard that includes four main video displays, four corner shroud displays, and upper and lower ring displays; a 360-degree ribbon display along the seating bowl fascia; two end wall displays; and an exterior marquee display at the entrance of the facility.

In the above rendering of the center-hung scoreboard, the four screens will each measure 260 inches across.  The entire system will have the capability to be synchronized to display a single sponsor at once to have a “moment of exclusivity.”

Lighting currently used for many events centers is the more traditional incandescent lighting. However, the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center will incorporate the newest of lighting technology, LED lighting, which creates a better viewing experience. In the view on the left, it shows what is used currently in most arenas.  The view on the right depicts the new LED lighting. Cotter says both fan enhancements were secured within the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center’s current budget structure.  Cotter also says another local company in Muth Electric was instrumental in getting the LED sports lighting in place.

When complete, the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center will be the first newly constructed facility in the nation to have LED lighting.  These lights also use about 60 percent less energy, which will save operating costs for the building long into the future.
