Lighthouse Jumbovision and TS Sports Play a Role in Cal's Stadium Renovation

Lighthouse and TS Sports are preparing to install Lighthouse HD10 LED video screens and three sets of LED video fascia at California Memorial Stadium, longtime home of the University of California Bears football.

The project, to be installed by Lighthouse partner TS Sports, features main LED video displays on the north and south ends of the stadium. Both ends of the stadium receive Lighthouse's revolutionary Greenline series HD10. The HD10 is environmentally friendly -- RoHS compliant -- and has a dramatically reduced carbon footprint over conventional panels. In addition, the company says the Greenline HD10 delivers brightness with an high contrast ratio, producing image resolution and uniformity, plus crowd-pleasing viewing angles. The main video displays each measure 22' high by 40' wide, boast a visual resolution of 10mm (courtesy of an effective total of over 800,000 pixels per screen), and are built from 66.5 LED video panels each. Bears fans will enjoy colorful animations, sponsor messages, instant replays and player introductions, along with custom video and highlights.

"Lighthouse is excited to contribute to the California Memorial Stadium renovation," says Ed Whitaker, Lighthouse Jumbovision N.A.S.A. director of sales. "The University of California is an icon of NCAA sports, as well as one of the country's great universities. It's an honor being a part of the project."

The Lighthouse portion of California Memorial Stadium's renovation also includes an LED video fascia display across the press box, plus two more at field level. Built from Lighthouse 20mm LED video panels, the fascia displays combine for 466' linear feet of LED video, with the press box fascia extending the entire length of Cal's football field. With nearly 440,000 individual LED pixels, the fascia displays will deliver coordinated, crystal-clear images, video, and animation.

"The Cal renovation is the sort of project that doesn't come around often," Whitaker adds. "By partnering with TS Sports, we know our LED video is going to look its best, and Bears' fans will be thrilled with their new, familiar home."
