The iconic University of Notre Dame stadium will get its first ever video display. The University of Notre Dame has contracted New York City-based firm ANC to install the video display system at the stadium. ANC offers integrated signage, as well as design, and marketing solutions for sports, retail, entertainment, and transportation facilities.
“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 installation is part of the almost 800,000-square-foot building project that has built new structures on the east, west, and south sides of Notre Dame Stadium. The goal of the construction project is to transform the stadium into a year-round venue. According to ANC, the video display system will be the largest 10mm surface mount (SMD) display in college football. The system will also feature the most physical pixels at an NCAA outdoor venue.
The project includes installation of seven other video displays. ANC chose Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.’s Diamond Vision System Division’s XL Series with Real Black® technology for all the displays, and ANC says that the displays will be synchronized by ANC’s vSOFT™ operating system.

The main video display has more than 4.7 million pixels and measures 54.07’ high by 95.54’ wide. This main display will offer true high-definition visuals surpassing 1080p resolution for statistics, video, and other event highlights. Two other sideline ribbon displays with 16 mm pitch measuring 3.78’ high by 393.07’ wide will span the sidelines.
Three 2.5 mm pixel pitch displays will also be installed on campus. One measuring 6.30’ high by 11.02 wide will be positioned in the North Side Schivarelli Lounge and another measuring 7.87’ high by 14.17’ wide will be placed in the North Side Locker Room.

“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.”
