Lighthouse LED Video Makes Giant Impact at BC Place


Lighthouse LED Video Makes Giant Impact at BC Place

Irvine, CA – November 2, 2011 -- BC Place, the home of MLS' Vancouver Whitecaps and the CFL's BC Lions, is now the residence of the world's second-largest center-hung LED video system. Integrated by Lighthouse partner TS Sports, the four-sided center-hung structure features two gigantic main screens and two end screens, totaling 325 square meter of full-color LED video.

The addition of Lighthouse LED video is just one aspect of the BC Place renewal project, which included the upgrade and modernization of the washrooms, access ramps, concourses, and concessions for more comfort and more choice, better service and better accessibility. At the same time, BC Place renovated 50 private guest suites and introduced 1,300 premium Club Seats and two new Club Lounges. However, the highlight of the renovation is the new retractable roof that turns BC Place into a year-round, open-air facility and a new architectural signature for the province. BC Place's cable-supported roof is the biggest of its kind in the world, and enables the facility to tailor the atmosphere for any event — from summer festivals in the sun, to football games under the stars, to indoor exhibitions comfortably protected from the rain. The transformation from indoor to outdoor, and vice versa, takes just 20 minutes. The tremendous center-hung LED video screens commandeer the attention of everyone in the stadium while the clock ticks down to game time. Meanwhile, the 360-degree LED video facade and pitchside displays deliver full-color, eye-catching sponsor messages.

Designed by Anthony James Partners, the center-hung LED video system features Lighthouse’s new Impact 16 LED video product, an exceptionally bright 16mm-pitch LED video panel designed for both indoor and outdoor arenas and stadiums, particularly venues facing conditions involving high-intensity ambient light. With over 603 square meter of LED video, the center-hung screens fill the stadium with colorful animations, sponsor messages, Lions' replays, Whitecaps' player introductions, custom video, and live concert and special event coverage.

Just before game time of MLS contests, the national anthems of both Canada and the United States are played, with beautiful, orchestrated flag animation blazing around and across the facade and pitchside video strips. Featuring 518 meter of fascia display and 167 meter of pitchside display - over 2 million individual LED video pixels - the Lighthouse 20mm fascia panels produce an electrifying, appropriate complement to both countries' national anthems.
