UCF Adds LED Video Tech to The Bounce House and The Venue

The University of Central Florida (UCF) added multiple LED signage assets from SNA Displays to its football and volleyball venues. Highlights include LED ribbons and field-level displays for the football stadium and a video scoreboard for the volleyball venue.

SNA Displays previously retrofitted the LED videoboard at UCF’s baseball field, John Euliano Park.

Owner’s representative and technology consultant Anthony James Partners (AJP) provided design, procurement, and construction administration services for UCF, selecting SNA Displays to manufacture and supply the LED video enhancements.

“In recent years, UCF Athletics has shown the Division I and Big 12 communities as well as its fanbase that UCF is committed to elevating the gameday experience through venue enhancements,” says AJ Faxel, executive vice president of Anthony James Partners. “By engaging AJP’s services, UCF has used dynamic video to uplift its game offerings and drive revenue.”

The Bounce House

Commonly known as “The Bounce House,” FBC Mortgage Stadium is home to the UCF Knights’ football team and seats more than 44,000 spectators. The Bounce House’s upgraded digital display network includes 210 linear feet of LED ribbon, two 24-foot-long field-level tunnel displays, and eight 3’2″ x 10’6″ vomitory displays. The two field-level displays have a short return to match the stadium’s architecture. All new LED display assets are built with 10 mm EMPIRE™ Exterior video technology.

“The University of Central Florida Athletics Association and AJP have been excellent partners to work for,” says Mitch Leathers, vice president of marketing communications for SNA Displays. “The Bounce House is just one of several campus-wide digital display improvements we’ve made at UCF and it’s gratifying to see all those enthusiastic fans enjoy an upgraded gameday experience.”

The new LED display systems employ a multifaceted video management tool, Ross Video’s XPression Tessera.

Bumgarner Construction provided LED installation services for the vomitories and field tunnel displays and Phoenix Signs installed the field-level ribbons.

The Venue at UCF

With space for up to 3,000 general admission guests, The Venue at UCF is situated between Addition Financial Arena and John Euliano Park.

The Venue’s new courtside direct-view LED is made from SNA Displays’ 6 mm BOLD Interior line of video technology. The display is 15’4″ high x 27’6″ wide (780 x 1,400 pixels) and processes more than a million pixels. Phoenix Signs provided installation services.

In addition to being home to UCF’s volleyball team, The Venue hosts concerts, musical theatre, commencements, and other stage shows and sporting events. The space is also used as a practice facility for the Knights’ basketball teams.
