Game Day Display

Full-Ribbon-Wrap-When the Rhode Island men’s and women’s basketball teams open the 2014–15 season at the Thomas M. Ryan Center this fall, student-athletes, fans and opponents will experience a new game-day atmosphere. New integrated displays include two Daktronics LED video boards and an LED ribbon wrap throughout the arena bowl.

“We are excited about the new technology,” says Thorr Bjorn, URI Director of Athletics. “The Ryan Center is truly one of the best basketball facilities in the country.”The new set-up will provide high quality imagery to every seat in the arena. A main video board will be 17 feet high and 38 feet wide, nearly tripling the old display area. Separate windows will show a variety of graphics and animations, stats and sponsor messages. There’ll also be a new auxiliary video board, and 590 feet of two-foot-high ribbon wrap providing 320-degree coverage.

“Our goal is to continually enhance the fan experience for all concerts, shows and community events,” says Leah Becki, general manager of the Ryan Center.
