New video display launches exciting new era and lights up opportunities for Forrest City School District
EDWARDSVILLE, IL, August 4, 2023 — It is a venue that has seen victory and celebration and a new Nevco video display is enriching the experience for all who set foot inside Forrest City High School’s Mustang Arena.
The school district in eastern Arkansas chose Nevco Sports, LLC to elevate game-day with a full-color 6mm V-Sided LED Video Display, measuring 7.92’H by 11.81’W on both sides. Over 216,000 pixels on each side of the video scoring solution are highlighting girls’ basketball and volleyball teams and a boys’ basketball program that has reached the pinnacle of achievement with two state championships (2014, 2016) under former longtime coach Dwight Lofton. Lofton, well known in the ranks of Arkansas high school basketball, won over 400 games in 25 seasons with the Mustangs.
All eyes inside the arena are being drawn to intriguing and immersive new views that empower the school district to captivate athletes and fans from tip-off or first serve to the final whistle. In addition to capturing exciting views on the court, the Mustangs can showcase highlights, team introductions, school sponsors and supporters, engaging graphics and prompts and more through Nevco Creative Services along with a virtual scoring package to keep all informed of the action. The video display is complemented with custom-imprinted wedge panels on each side prominently displaying “FC” and the school mascot, along with a custom-imprinted bottom that reads “Forrest City Mustangs”.
“It was a privilege to bring Forrest City’s vision for a new kind of game-day experience to life,” said Josh Robbers, Regional Video Display Consultant for Nevco. “We take great pride in this process, taking the time to listen to the specific needs and goals of our partners and delivering a winning solution they can be proud of. We look forward to seeing Mustang Arena light up for years to come, highlighting the students and their supportive community.”
The school further enhanced their set-up with a new pair of Model 2700 scoreboards to each end of Mustang Arena with standout white LED digits and Electronic Team Names, offering a welcoming experience by customizing the names of all teams who play there. Signage is featured below each scoreboard displaying “Forrest City Mustangs” and the school mascot. The upgrades at Forrest City were completed with a set of SSC-T5 Shot Clocks.
