New Orleans Arena to Get 360 Display

Company: Panasonic
Product: 360-degree LED video /ribbon display

Panasonic Eco Solutions North America announces that it will provide a new 360-degree LED video /ribbon display at New Orleans Arena. The new display will be approximately 924 feet long by 1.6 feet high and will be located in the center area between the seating levels. The installation project is expected to be completed by the end of July.

The high-definition display will be installed in the upper fascia of the arena and will be used to interact with and engage the audience through programming that will include local and national sponsor messages, audience participation features and game highlights. The system will be installed by a local contractor, Citadel Builders, L.L.C., the general contractor for the project. By integrating the display with the legacy control system, the LED boards can be synchronized with the existing displays in the arena for a richer fan experience.

"To integrate the new system components into the existing legacy control system, Panasonic had custom-sized top-service cabinets manufactured just another way we provide solutions to meet the needs of our customers. The solution was designed to specifically meet and exceed expectations, and events at the arena will benefit from additional engagement with the fans to make the experience more enjoyable and inclusive."
- Richard Ballard, Vice President of Sales for Panasonic Eco Solutions North America. He added,

"When fans come to a Pelicans game, we want them to have a unique, exciting experience. Panasonic's custom plan for the New Orleans Arena will enhance fan engagement and make coming to Pelicans games even more enjoyable and interactive for fans."
- Pelicans President Dennis Lauscha.

The New Orleans Arena, completed in 1999 at a cost of $114 million, offers up to 19,000 seats for events. The arena is the home to the New Orleans Pelicans, the city's NBA basketball team, as well as site of the 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend. In addition to sporting events, the arena is also a popular venue for concerts, trade shows and conventions.
