Dickies Arena to house second largest continuous video display in the nation

Trail Drive Management Corp. (TDMC) released plans to install a complete video display network at Dickies Arena.

TDMC will partner with ANC to design and install a new center-hung display, fascia ribbon boards and courtside displays throughout the venue. The display will be the second largest continuous display featuring 360-degree playback as one canvas in the United States.

“Dickies Arena will bring quality entertainment to Fort Worth, and our video displays will help create an immersive environment for a wide variety of events,” said Matt Homan, president and general manager of TDMC.

The new video network includes a rounded display that will enhance the viewing experience with a larger canvas for content, stats, video and animations. The main video display, which is made up of four 6-milimeter displays measuring 25.2 feet high by 37.8 feet wide, seamlessly wraps into four 6-milimeter corner displays.

A 360-degree, 16-milimeter fascia ribbon board will wrap the upper bowl, supplying fans with statistics and scores and maximizing revenue by allowing dynamic advertisements.

Dickies Arena will be a 14,000- seat, multipurpose venue located adjacent to the Will Rogers Memorial Center campus in Fort Worth. The facility is the result of a pioneering public-private partnership between the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, the state of Texas and a group of private-sector participants, including foundations, individuals and organizations.

The arena will be owned by the City of Fort Worth and managed by the not-for-profit operating entity Trail Drive Management Corp. The state-of-the-art arena, scheduled to open in November 2019, will host concerts, sporting events and family entertainment, and will be the new home to Fort Worth Stock Show rodeo performances.
