Football fans of the University of Michigan kicked off the 2011 season enjoying a new look for Michigan Stadium, now complete with newly upgraded scoreboards from Lighthouse Technologies. The state-of-the-art video displays and scoring systems feature Screen Master high-brightness LEDs by Cree Inc. delivering high-definition images to 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. 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. More than three million Cree Screen Master CLV6A LEDs illuminate each of the LED video boards. With industry-leading water-resistant packaging, Cree's versatile 3-in-1 LEDs feature the high-intensity output and wide viewing angles needed for the stadium's stunning outdoor LED video systems.
