Four ProTour video screens, each approximately 12 feet tall by 16 feet wide, took the place of the existing center hung equipment at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Impact positioned two other ProTour video boards approximately 5 feet tall by 16 feet wide at both end zones to ensure every fan a glimpse of the action. The LED displays illuminated the Thomas & Mack Center throughout the weekend activities culminating with the main event on February 18.

"The displays performed flawlessly, but what impressed us the most was the uniformity and depth of color the ProTour panels offer," said Jeffrey Isenberg, VP of sales and marketing for Impact Video. "Daktronics' ProTour video boards encompass the finest overall package. The quality of the lightweight display possesses unlimited flexibility," added Isenberg.

This marks the first event in which Impact Video has utilized Daktronics' ProTour modular LED video kit with 13millimeter line spacing design.
With over 15,000 in attendance, NBA basketball fans observed a dazzling display of ProTour video brilliance. Daktronics' provided their Venus 7000 controller and operator to smooth the process of the content for the end zone displays by performing the scripting and RTD sequences. Daktronics also contracted with the NBA to provide transparent shot clocks, backboard and scorers table LED strips.

Daktronics and Impact working together is an excellent example for promoting a marketable product for a satisfied customer.
