Daktronics has been awarded a $2.1 million contract to provide an integrated video, scoring and advertising
display system for the new Omaha Convention Center & Arena, scheduled to open later this summer. The
Metropolitan Entertainment & Convention Authority (MECA) is managing the construction and will manage the
operation of the new arena and convention center.
The integrated system includes a custom eight-sided scoreboard with ProStar® video displays, two large
ProAd® digital advertising and information displays, auxiliary scoreboards, four-sided shot/game clocks,
hockey goal lights, locker room clocks, ticket window displays, a ProStar® video display incorporated into the
new facility's marquee, and video and scoring control equipment.
"Our staff went through a very thorough and extensive competitive bid review and are very pleased to have
selected Daktronics," said Roger Dixon, executive director of MECA. "We are extremely excited with the high
quality of the video, scoring and advertising display system. People attending a sporting or concert event at the
new arena will quickly discover the display system will significantly enhance the entertainment value of the
event. In particular, it will be a tremendous asset for the Creighton Bluejays and UNO Maverick programs."
