For the 2010 ING New York City Marathon, Impact Video (Burbank, CA), a provider of LED-display technology and related production services, set up production support and numerous mobile video display units that featured Daktronics (Brookings, SD) LED video technology.
Broadcast live on NBC, the NYC Marathon puts the Big Apple on the running world’s stage. Eight truck-mounted LED display units provided a great view to more than 45,000 runners, 2.5 million spectators, and more than 6,000 volunteers. The truck-mounted Daktronics LED videoscreens were used in sizes ranging from 12 x 16 to 22 x 30 ft., and included the Impact Illuminator LED screens with HD LED technology. Five units were placed at the start line, located at Fort Wadsworth in Staten Island, NY, to display the televised race coverage on NBC, and informational messaging and live-camera production for the Open Zone entertainment area. The additional three units were placed near the finish line on the West Side of Manhattan and Central Park to display television broadcast feeds as well as live-event coverage at the photo bridge, allowing participants, family and spectators to see the runners as they crossed the finish line.
Ethiopian distance runner Gebre Gebremariam won the marathon in 2 hours, 8 minutes and 14 seconds.
