Barclays Scoreboard on Order


Daktronics, the big scoreboard maker, reported this week that it had won the $7 million contract for the Barclays Center scoreboard and other scoring and video board systems. The main scoreboard will be unique among NBA arenas. It will be visible at street level from Atlantic and Flatbush and as fans exit the Transit Connection in front of Barclays.  The arena floor will be 20' below street grade. 

Under the current timetable, the scoring and video board systems will be installed starting in late February of next year and are expected to be up and running four and a half months later.  The scoreboard design shown in architects renderings is not final. The ultimate design has yet to be released.  Also don't be surprised to see a Russian company involved. Optogan manufactures high brightness LED displays and is owned by Mikhail Prokhorov. Nets Chairman Christophe Charlier is chairman of Optogan as well.
