Gainbridge Fieldhouse // Indiana Pacers

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

Highlighted by a new center-hung scoreboard, which ANC designed through a collaborative process with the Pacers, the digital makeover is part of the large multi-phase renovation at Gainbridge Fieldhouse (formerly Bankers Life Fieldhouse). 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. This 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 also integrated the entire digital makeover.

"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."

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.

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 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 Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
