The Great Southern Screen at the Accor Stadium in Sydney, Australia is 10m x 120m with a 13HD pixel layout, and is the largest LED display in the Southern Hemisphere.

Daktronics installs its widest ever stadium LED screen

Bringing a larger-than-life view to Accor Stadium, Daktronics has worked with the venue in Sydney, Australia to manufacture and install the Great Southern Screen, the widest main video display the company has ever installed in a sports stadium and the largest display in the southern hemisphere.

Installation was recently completed ahead of a large schedule of events at Sydney’s Olympic venue, including Rugby League’s NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final on 2 October.

The Great Southern Screen measures 10m high by 120m long as it stretches around the entire southern end of the stadium. It features a 13HD pixel layout to deliver excellent image clarity and contrast, and employs environmental protection to ensure it operates as expected in the outdoor elements of Australia.

“We are honoured to be selected as the preferred LED supplier for Venues NSW at both Stadium Australia and Sydney Football Stadium,” said Blair Robertson, Daktronics Australia regional manager.

“Having overcome many delivery challenges, it was a great moment to being present at the first games this weekend. I was filled with pride and excitement watching the fans’ reactions at seeing the GSS first-hand.

“The sheer scale and vibrancy of the displays has lit up the stadium to deliver a unique game-day experience. There is no reason to stay at home to watch the game, with the new GSS you get your HD curved TV and the live venue experience all at once.”

Additionally, the stadium received a video display featuring a 13HD pixel layout and measuring 10m high by 23m wide in the north end.

Surrounding the live action, two pitch perimeter displays were also installed. One pitch display measures nearly 1m high by 439m wide and the other measures nearly 1m high by 244m wide. Each pitch display features 10mm-pixel spacings and provide the opportunity to supplement content on the main displays, and to highlight sponsors throughout events.

The main video displays are capable of variable content zoning, allowing each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to share any combination of live video, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
