AZERBAIJAN: The Baku Olympic Stadium is set to be equipped with a Daktronics LED super-system featuring two HD video displays as well as new LED ribbon and pitch perimeter displays. The project is set to begin in September with the full stadium expected to be completed in 2015.

‘Daktronics provided many key elements that led to their selection for this video display project,’ said Javid Najafov, senior engineer for regional and social projects delivery department of SOCAR, the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic, the company funding the project. ‘Simply put, the quality they provide, the solid reference list built from their experience in the industry, and the responsibility and responsiveness of the company from a partnership perspective positioned them to succeed with this installation.’

The displays at either end of the 68,000-capcity stadium will feature a 15HD pixel layout and measure 10.97m high by 19.75m wide – equivalent to 720 pixels high by 1296 pixels wide. These displays can provide full-screen live video and instant replays. They can also be divided into separate windows to show additional statistics, animations, graphics and sponsor messages.

One ribbon display will be installed on the fascia of the seating area. It will feature 20 line spacing and measure 1.1m high by 691.65m wide. One pitch perimeter display will be installed around the edge of the field. It will feature 10mm line spacing and measure 0.73m high by 307m wide.

‘We’re extremely honoured to be selected for this monumental installation for Baku Olympic Stadium,’ said Ewan Prentice, Daktronics regional sales. ‘These displays will provide the stadium with extra game-day excitement and amplify the action that’s taking place on the field. We’re excited to see everything installed and turned on for their first event.’
