Spectra partners with ANC to design and integrate new centre-hung scoreboard at Cross Insurance Arena
Spectra by Comcast Spectacor, the providers of Venue Management to the Cross Insurance Arena, have unveiled a new video display system that will be used for all sporting events at the facility, including University of Maine Black Bears men’s hockey games.
Spectra partnered with ANC to integrate a new video display system, highlighted by a centre-hung display that features four main video screens measuring 12.60’ high by 15.75’ wide.
The centre-hung display is complemented by eight LED ribbon displays, which will be utilised throughout the Arena for real-time statistics, crowd entertainment and advertising messages.
The renovation included a complete new in-house video production system, which enables HD quality live video and instant replays.
Spectra’s Matt Herpich, General Manager, Cross Insurance Arena, said:
As an established partner of Spectra, ANC stood out for their ability to create a display that will take Cross Insurance Arena to the next level. The new display system will empower Spectra and the sports tenants that play at Cross Insurance Arena to create an immersive environment for a variety of sporting and entertainment events hosted at the arena.
Through a multi-year partnership, ANC’s creative services division will develop content for the video display system, including dynamic content, statistical templates and sponsor graphics. The video display system will be operated through ANC’s award-winning vSOFT™ operating system, creating an immersive fan experience.
Dave Watroba, Vice President Sales, ANC, said:
We are excited to bring state of the art LED displays to the Cross Insurance Arena. Building upon our relationship with Spectra, we look forward to partnering on another center-hung display system, along with developing content to create an engaging environment for all visitors of Cross Insurance Arena.
A long-time partner of Spectra by Comcast Spectacor, ANC designed, installed and maintains the LED video display system at the company’s flagship arena, the Wells Fargo Center, home of the Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers. Spectra partners with ANC at four other properties across North America, including Liacouras Center at Temple University, Abbotsford Centre in Abbotsford, BC, PPL Center, Allentown, PA and XL Center, Hartford, CT.
