UCF upgrades LED at football and volleyball venues

SNA Displays provided LED ribbons and field-level displays for the football stadium and a video scoreboard for the volleyball venue

The University of Central Florida (UCF) has added multiple LED signage assets from SNA Displays to its football and volleyball venues. Highlights include LED ribbons and field-level displays for the football stadium and a video scoreboard for the volleyball venue.

Technology consultant Anthony James Partners (AJP) provided design, procurement, and construction administration services for UCF, selecting SNA Displays to manufacture and supply the LED video enhancements. SNA Displays had previously retrofitted the LED videoboard at UCF’s baseball field, John Euliano Park.

Commonly known as “The Bounce House,” FBC Mortgage Stadium is home to the UCF Knights’ football team and seats more than 44,000 spectators. The Bounce House’s upgraded digital display network includes 210 linear feet of LED ribbon, two 24-foot-long field-level tunnel displays, and eight 3’2″ x 10’6″ vomitory displays. The two field-level displays have a short return to match the stadium’s architecture. All new LED display assets are built with 10mm EMPIRE Exterior video technology.

The new LED display systems employ a multifaceted video management tool, Ross Video’s XPression Tessera. Bumgarner Construction provided LED installation services for the vomitories and field tunnel displays and Phoenix Signs installed the field-level ribbons.

With space for up to 3,000 general admission guests, The Venue UCF’s volleyball arena – is situated between Addition Financial Arena and John Euliano Park. The Venue’s new courtside direct-view LED is made from SNA Displays’ 6mm BOLD Interior line of video technology. The display is 15’4″ high x 27’6″ wide (780 x 1,400 pixels) and processes more than a million pixels. Phoenix Signs provided installation services.

In addition to being home to UCF’s volleyball team, The Venue hosts concerts, musical theatre, and other stage shows and sporting events. The space is also used as a practice facility for the Knights’ basketball teams.

“In recent years, UCF Athletics has shown the Division I and Big 12 communities as well as its fanbase that UCF is committed to elevating the gameday experience through venue enhancements,” said AJ Faxel, executive vice president, Anthony James Partners. “By engaging AJP’s services, UCF has used dynamic video to uplift its game offerings and drive revenue.”

Mitch Leathers, vice president of marketing communications, SNA Displays, added: “The University of Central Florida Athletics Association and AJP have been excellent partners to work for. The Bounce House is just one of several campus-wide digital display improvements we’ve made at UCF and it’s gratifying to see all those enthusiastic fans enjoy an upgraded game-day experience.”
