BROOKLYN, N.Y., Sept. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barclays Center will open its doors tomorrow and reveal a centerhung integrated super system from Daktronics (Nasdaq:DAKT). The high definition video scoreboard and surrounding LED displays create one of the largest and most technologically advanced video displays of any arena. Daktronics, the world's leading provider of full-color LED video displays, provided Barclays Center with 7,895 square feet of LED as part of an alliance with the venue, which will be the new home of the Brooklyn Nets.

In addition to the grand display in the center of the bowl, the exterior of Barclays Center features the signature "oculus," a one-of-a-kind, 3,000 square foot, 360-degree LED marquee, which hangs above the main entrance.

Upon entering Barclays Center, guests will see 6-foot high, 73-foot long ribbon displays in the GEICO Atrium, programmed with wayfinding information, event times and dates, and sponsor messages. Installed inside the bowl are a 360 degree ribbon display and two other ribbon displays that measure nearly 190 feet in length. Two additional large displays hang on the end walls of the bowl. The Daktronics technology continues on shot clocks, ticket windows, entrance points into the bowl, and other areas throughout the venue.

"Daktronics has delivered incredible LED technology that will set Barclays Center apart from other sports and entertainment venues," said Chip Foley, Director of Building Technology for Forest City Ratner Companies, developer of Barclays Center. "The fans will be captivated by the imagery; and sponsors will be impressed by the branding capabilities that our LEDs offer. Barclays Center's sophisticated technology is fitting for the borough of Brooklyn."
