South Bend, Indiana – August 15, 2017 – The University of Notre Dame has partnered with ANC to install the first major video display system into the iconic Notre Dame Stadium.
“Tradition is the cornerstone Notre Dame football,” said Notre Dame Vice President and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick. “The seamless integration of the video display system into Notre Dame Stadium will emphasize our tradition by highlighting our legacy through rich visuals, information, and statistics.”
The video display system is part of a nearly 800,000-square-foot construction project that has added new structures to the west, east, and south sides of Notre Dame Stadium, transforming it into a year-round venue. The video display system will be highlighted by the largest 10mm surface mount (SMD) display in college football, featuring the most physical pixels in an NCAA outdoor venue. The renovation project includes:
ANC selected Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.’s Diamond Vision System Division’s XL Series featuring Real Black® technology for all the displays and they will be seamlessly synchronized by ANC's award-winning vSOFT™ operating system. By featuring physical pixels, the main video display will provide true high-definition visuals exceeding 1080p for video, statistics, and other event highlights.
“It is an honor to partner with the University of Notre Dame,” said Jerome Cifarelli, President & Chief Executive Officer, ANC. “Combining Notre Dame’s historic legacy with our innovative technology will create an even more memorable experience for students, fans and alumni at one of the most iconic stadiums in the world.”
ANC has a history of integrating technology into historic sports venues, with past displays being installed at the historic landmark Fenway Park and the 50-year old Dodger Stadium. Mitsubishi’s next generation technology can be found in venues across the United States, including the Chicago White Sox.
ANC provides integrated signage, design, and marketing solutions to sports, entertainment, retail, and transportation facilities. Among ANC’s recent projects include the Seattle Mariners (largest HD video display in MLB); Los Angeles Dodgers (most pixels per square foot in MLB); Cleveland Cavaliers (largest center-hung in the United States); Fulton Center (largest digital media network in a New York City transportation center); and Westfield World Trade Center (iconic digital media network).
