Case study

Gainbridge Fieldhouse // Indiana Pacers + Indiana Fever

Welcome to the Indiana Fever Caitlin Clark!

Proud Hosts of the 2024 NBA All-Star Game

Long-Time Digital Media Display Partners in building the FIELDHOUSE of the FUTURE for the INDIANA PACERS since 2010.

As the long-term venue solutions partner to Pacers Sports & Entertainment since 2010, ANC designed through a collaborative process with the venue and Rick Fuson, CEO, the venue's massive digital makeover as part of the large multi-phase renovation at Gainbridge Fieldhouse (formerly Bankers Life Fieldhouse) in preparation for hosting the 2024 NBA All-Star Game.

"ANC has been an instrumental partner to transform and enhance our venue experience. We turn to them to service our day-to-day needs. They handle all the touch points from maintenance to ensure our displays are operating optimally, to creating graphics for our gameday and event experiences, to operating all the displays from a single point."

Pictured here behind-the-scenes during NBA All-Star weekend, ANC's Scott Dalton has been on-site at Gainbridge Fieldhouse for every live event since 2013, nearly the entire length of the Indiana Pacers x ANC partnership beginning in 2010.
In addition to major events, ANC Technicians such as Scott perform walk-throughs throughout the building, providing control display network maintenance and venue control software updates to ensure the technologies stay in peak condition 365 days year-round.

The transformed venue experiences delivers fans an impressive 4mm Center Hung Scoreboard with 4mm Underbelly, display technology activations such as concourse and atrium digital media, the 1.5mm Fine Pitch LED "Selfie Wall", new Club and Hospitality display systems, as well as driving unique content experiences to the new Bicentennial Unity Plaza exterior LED sphere.

As part of the long-term partnership which began more than a decade ago, ANC integrates with the venue’s production staff to create content and operate the display system for every event at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Central to the all-new digital experience is ANC’s LiveSync operating platform, which synchronizes all the existing and new digital displays, including the 600 square feet of fine pitch technology, through pre-programmed and live event operation of the system.

As the turnkey full venue solutions partner, ANC collaborates with the team on the designs of new technologies, oversees the execution and integrations, and provides ongoing service support including team graphics by ANC Studios content creation designers.

“Since 1999, [Gainbridge] Fieldhouse has been part of the terrific resurgence of Indianapolis’ downtown as an iconic venue where millions of guests each year have enjoyed a world-class experience in an increasingly global city,” says Rick Fuson, Pacers Sports & Entertainment President and CEO. “We have now completed the first step in modernizing the Fieldhouse, preserving what has always made it unique while creating experiences for the fans of today and tomorrow.”

The major focal point of the digital renovation is the new center-hung LED scoreboard which provides optimal viewing angles from every seat in the fieldhouse.

The scoreboard features a four-sided rectangular primary display with approximately 3,350 square feet of dynamic video area. The four main displays are capped by custom-built LED squared off “rings,” one on bottom and one on top of the primary displays, that allow content to flow seamlessly around the center hung.

The interior of the display features a complete underbelly running the full length and width of the scoreboard structure while measuring approximately 10’ high and ensuring exceptional views of stats, game details and replays from every angle. Each façade features 4mm LED displays while combining to feature more than 40 million pixels.

Complementing the center-hung is more than 600 square feet of 1.5mm fine pitch LED displays, providing high-definition viewing experiences in Gainbridge Fieldhouse Courtside and West Sideline Premier Club locations. A commitment to a significant square footage of fine pitch LED displays ensures optimum experiences in the arena’s premium spaces – experiences that rival in-home viewing and provide a tremendous return on investment for the renovation.

The renovation also includes six new locations of LED vomitory displays capable of synchronizing with the venue’s courtside LED displays and 360-degree ribbon boards to create a fully immersive in-bowl experience. ANC integrated the entire digital makeover.
