Temple University fans are about to get a high-definition experience at the Liacouras Center. The University and ANC Sports Enterprises formed a multiyear partnership to enhance the center through a new, high-definition video system featuring high-definition quality visuals across more than 1.7 million pixels. The new signage expands ANC’s relationship with Temple University, which began featuring the company’s DLP® Courtside Signage for events at the Liacouras Center in 2007.
ANC Sports will handle the design, installation, and operation of the new displays, which will be highlighted by a center-hung scoreboard consisting of four Diamond Vision™ video screens. Each screen will measure more than 7 feet high and 10 feet wide. It will also include four scoring LED displays, which will measure more than 3 feet high and 10 feet wide, and which are capable of full-motion graphics. Beneath these scoring matrixes will be an ANC Sports’ LED ring, which will display animated University branding, crowd prompts, and sponsor acknowledgements.
Complementing the scoreboard will be a new ANC Sports’ LED ribbon system spread across the Liacouras Center’s 200 Level façade.
“This new display system will create an emotional environment at the Liacouras Center, which will change how sports, music, graduation and other events are experienced on our campus,” said Bill Bradshaw, Temple University’s director of Athletics.
The new center-hung scoreboard will bring more than 1800 square feet of dynamic content, including live action, replays, game animation, team logos, student athlete introductions, and real-time statistics to the 10,200-seat venue.
Driven by ANC’s VisionSOFT™ operating system, the Diamond Vision LED video screens and all of ANC Sports’ LED displays will be fully integrated. Visuals will synchronize together to appear as one theme, or segment into different elements to provide fans with various information and entertaining content.
“We are excited to partner with Temple University,” said Jerry Cifarelli, president and chief executive officer of ANC Sports. “Our operating system, creative services, and display technologies will provide the University with the opportunity to create a unique atmosphere every night through the display of incredible visuals that are integrated with statistical data.”
