Twickenham Stadium, the Home of England Rugby, was the venue for the opening ceremony on Friday September 18 and will also play host to the semi-finals and final.

Looking to set the highest standards for the rugby experience in London, Twickenham Stadium features four Daktronics LED video displays.

Two large displays measuring 167sqm and featuring a 13HD pixel layout are supported by a further two 8.82sqm displays with 10mm line-spaced SMD LEDs.

The screens can display one large image to highlight live video and instant replay, or can be divided into multiple sections for a variety of statistics, game information, graphics, animations and sponsor advertising.

The other match venues in London are Wembley and ‘The Stadium’ at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

These also deploy visual solutions designed, manufactured and installed by Daktronics.

The Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, has installed two large curved LED video displays, each measuring 8m high by 26.7m wide to provide a combined display space of more than 420sqm with a 15HD pixel layout for excellent image clarity and contrast with wide viewing angles.

Every stadium seat is ensured a good view of the displays, with their variable content zoning to show one large image or multiple separate zones. 

Wembley Stadium’s display system includes two main video displays with the curved aspect unique to Daktronics and a ribbon display circling the entire interior of the stadium along the seating area.

The two main LED video displays each measure 8.15m high by 23.88m wide, providing a combined display space of 382sqm with a 15HD pixel layout.

The 20mm resolution ribbon display measures 0.75m by 612m in circumference.

At Wembley Stadium, three large LED video displays welcome fans as they arrive at the stadium entrance.

The main screen, measuring 7.69m high by 59.56m wide is flanked by a further two displays each measuring 11.48m high by 19.96m wide.

Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium has also entrusted the efficiency, clarity and longevity of its installed display systems to Daktronics.

Two large LED video displays, one at either end of the playing pitch, measure 6.94m high by 15.72m wide, providing 109sqm of variable content zoned space.

Brighton Community Stadium also boasts two LED displays with a 15HD resolution.

The displays located at both ends of the pitch provide a combined space total of 83sqm.

Daktronics regional manager, Ewan Prentice, says: “We are all very proud and thankful at Daktronics to all the stadiums for trusting and supporting Daktronics in what we do.

“I feel it speaks volumes of who we are and what we believe in. I’m very proud to have been involved in each installation, as every venue took on a new challenge.

“Each venue trusted Daktronics to help guide them through the process, focusing on embracing the very latest innovations in technology with the goal of enhancing the game day experience for all involved.”
