Football fans of the University of Michigan started the 2011 season enjoying the new look of Michigan Stadium, now complete with newly upgraded scoreboards. The state-of-the-art video displays and scoring systems features the latest LED technology, delivering crystal-clear, high definition images to the fans throughout “The Big House.”
A college football icon, Michigan Stadium was built in 1927 and is the largest stadium in the United States, consistently boasting game day crowds of more than 100,000 fans. On September 10, the stadium hosted a record crowd of more than 114,800 Wolverine and University of Notre Dame fans at the first nighttime football game ever played at the “Big House.”
The scoreboard replacement project began in March 2011, with the addition of two Lighthouse outdoor LED video systems. Positioned in each of the end zones, the high-resolution LED video boards are 40 percent larger than the previous system, providing in-game broadcast capability, instant replay, animation and dynamic promotional content in vivid color and ultra-sharp detail.
