Basketball enthusiasts didn’t miss a second of the exciting live basketball action with six 13 millimeter Daktronics ProTour® screens present at this year’s 2007 NBA All Star Game.

The NBA contracted with Daktronics’ rental partner, Impact Video, to provide the displays. Four ProTour® video screens, each approximately 12’ tall by 16’ 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‘ tall by 16’ 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,” says 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.”

This marks the first event in which Impact Video has utilized Daktronics’ ProTour® modular LED video kit with 13 millimeter 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.
