In collaboration with GoVision, our premier commercial partner, digiLED Toura6 LED modules presented all the action at the 2017 NCAA Final Four held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona earlier this month.
The LED screens erected for the four-day basketball event comprised digiLED’s Toura6 modules which were used in GoVision’s previous award-winning project, Colossus TV – the world’s largest, four-sided, centre-hung outdoor display, located at Bristol Motor Speedway, Tennessee.
The bespoke design encompassed a quartet of high-definition video displays each measuring 53.5sqm, screens displaying game statistics as well as an LED top ring with a diameter of 24.4m. Altogether, 764 LED panels were used to construct the screens containing in excess of 12 million LED pixels.
digiLED Toura offers a range of pixel pitches to amaze audiences, whether it’s for a dynamic video backdrop, dramatic lighting effects or curved video displays, its fantastic contrast ratio provides consistent punchy images. Ultra-lightweight, fast-rig mechanics and a built-in ladder system makes Toura the perfect solution for rental applications.
Scott McKinnon, GoVision Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, said: “The Toura6 platform provides the perfect combination of lightweight, brightness and quick rigging mechanics to fit this massive project perfectly.”
North Carolina were the eventual winners of this year’s competition, defeating Gonzaga 71-65 in the Championship game.
The displays have now been disassembled and reinstalled again at Bristol Motor Speedway in preparation of the full weekend of racing taking place April 21-23.
