There’s always a tremendous amount of fan excitement in Toronto’s Maple Leaf Square before and during hockey games; and in Jurassic Park, home to Raptors fans during basketball games. The public square has a capacity of 5,000 people, and hosts pre-game gatherings and outdoor viewings of games like season openers and playoffs for both the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors.
Games going on inside the arena are displayed live on the outdoor screen for public viewing, and fans have been known to line up the night before in eager anticipation.
So, when you’ve got 5,000 energized fans outside wanting a great view of the big game inside, what’s the best way to accommodate them?
The solution is a massive new LG outdoor Direct View LED (DVLED) display. It’s now part of Maple Leaf Square, and it replaces a previous, smaller screen.
According to rAVe [PUBS], “Giving Toronto sports fans a superior viewing experience in Maple Leaf Square adjacent to the Scotiabank Arena, the new 2,200-square-foot LG DVLED display is 37 percent larger than the previous screen. The installation of the new 62-by-35-foot screen marks the expanded partnership between MLSE and LG, which have a shared mindset of elevating every game for fans. LG Electronics Canada is the exclusive Consumer Electronics Partner of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors.”
rAVe adds, “The LG DVLED screen (with a 6mm pixel pitch) consists of 1,269 modules housed in 168 cabinets that make up the single screen. Each cabinet is equipped with an IP-66 rating to ensure the highest level of protection and performance in any weather, and each module features a premium-tier chipset that provides rich, saturated colors and a high level of brightness to ensure quality display even in direct sunlight.”
Fans and visitors alike have a whole lot to love. See the new LG Outdoor DVLED in action:
