“Because Samsung has such a full portfolio of products, we have screens ranging from 27 inches in size to 27,000 square feet,” Pasco said. “We didn’t set out to have the biggest videoboards in pro sports, but we wanted to have the best quality, so we chose Samsung’s high-resolution HDR-capable screens. Having 4K technology would ensure the displays remain cutting-edge for years.”
On the exterior of Allegiant Stadium, the project pushed boundaries further by featuring a mesh display — a robust and vibrant exterior LED screen befitting of the Las Vegas landscape and the largest outdoor stadium marquee in professional football at 27,600 square feet.
“In Las Vegas, you have to have a really bright building, so we put the mesh videoboard on the outside that faces the strip. It allows us to market our corporate sponsors, as well as display information about upcoming events at the stadium,” explained Pasco.
Between the videoboards, ribbon boards, displays in the suites, concourses, bars, vomitories and the outside mesh display, there are 66,000 square feet of display technology throughout Allegiant Stadium.
“Fans are immediately immersed in a video experience when entering Allegiant Stadium. We have positioned our videoboards to get an amazing view from every seat in the house and ensure they don’t miss a thing,” Pasco said.
For the venue operators, this is particularly important. Designed as a multiuse building, Allegiant Stadium hosts a variety of events from pro football to collegiate games, concerts and corporate functions. The visual experience differs for each, but the delivery needs to be equally mind-blowing across all these events.
The displays throughout the venue can be easily tailored to each event using a display management system.
“Samsung screens enable great venue flexibility. With the flick of a switch, we can change from a football game to a concert, for example. We can program the displays in multiple different ways from signage, menu boards, televisions or corporate messaging,” Pasco highlighted.
