The University of Louisville announces that it has extended its partnership with Purchase, New York-based ANC, a designer, integrator, operator and creator of content for video display systems for stadiums, arenas and other entertainment facilities. ANC will install and operate three new video displays at Cardinal Stadium, and they’ll be ready to go when football season kicks off in a few weeks.
Cardinal Stadium holds about 61,000 and is home to the University of Louisville football team, as well as a venue for special events such as concerts and auto shows. The three-display network will consist of more than 8,000 square feet of LED, including a 23.31′ high x 91.34′ wide 1080-pitch screen located in the south end zone and two 37.80′ high x 80′ wide 720-pitch video screens in the corners of the north end zone. The main display in the south end zone will be the third-largest display in the Atlantic Coast Conference, according to ANC. The install will also include 20mm LED ribbon displays in the north end zone and along the east and west sidelines.
Along with the digital media network, ANC will install a complete audio system to accompany the visual experience at Cardinal Stadium.
The stadium is the third venue ANC has partnered with U. of L. on to upgrade video display technology. Louisville also agreed to a 12-year service partnership with ANC to continue to maintain and operate their video display systems.
“ANC has been a great partner of the University and was our first choice to help us upgrade our video display at Cardinal Stadium,” says Vince Tyra, U. of L. vice president and director of athletics. “This new technology will enhance the fan experience within the stadium, helping make every seat the best seat in the house.”
ANC will also install a new 16mm, 20.16′ high x 25.20′ wide video board at U. of L.’s Bass-Rudd Tennis Center and a new line scoreboard at the Paterson Baseball Field.
