Nanolumens, creators of True Curve LED displays, awarded its 8th annual Crystal Nixel Award to McCann Systems and Gensler for their DraftKings Sportsbook installation at Wrigley Field. Per a statement, the colossally curved DVLED display features an expansive 2,000-square-foot curved videowall with a bottom ticker that scrolls through scores, headlines, betting odds and other stats.

“As partners go, McCann Systems and Gensler are top-notch and the Crystal Nixel Award for this installation is well-deserved. Their combined vision and execution in this domain were truly remarkable and successfully integrating the massive videowall structure is an extraordinary accomplishment. This, combined with their design concept, resulted in a breathtaking canvas capable of displaying 25 games simultaneously with exceptional clarity,” says Nanolumens CEO, Ney Corsino. “Together, we created an unmatched, immersive fan experience that is both awesome and enriching. We’re proud to recognize both project partners for their integration of our LED Nixel solutions. We look forward to working with these teams again.”

DraftKings Sportsbook Draws Raves

Visitors to Chicago’s Wrigley Field stadium can now watch their favorite sports in comfort at the new 17,000-square-foot DraftKings Sportsbook. This display is inside the historic 109-year-old Chicago Cubs baseball stadium. Here, it features Nanolumens’ patented Nixel Flex technology. Per a statement, the Nixel product offers brightness, image quality, customization options, durability and flexibility to meet the needs of Sportsbook operations. As a result, it helps provide an engaging and exciting fan experience. This display also ensures that the Sportsbook can stay competitive and continue to provide top-notch customer experiences for many years to come.

The teams designed and installed a massive 2,000-square-foot video screen, measuring 134 feet wide by 15 feet high. The videowall was designed to provide an immersive viewing experience for all guests, according to a statement. Moreover, Nanolumens’ DVLED wall is the highlight of the space as it wraps around the entire area being visible from practically any seat. It features curved 2.5mm Nixel Flex with 5,100 Nixel cabinets (Tiles) and has nearly 30 million pixels spanning the screen.

McCann Systems’ DraftKings Sportsbook project at Wrigley Field also took home a Commercial Integrator Integration Awards for Best Casino Project in 2023. See additional project information and photos of the installation here.
