ANC Sports launches stadium and arena media operating system

Feb. 6, 2006
Date Announced: 06 Feb 2006 Purchase, New York -ANC Sports Enterprises today announced the successful launch of a new universal software solution designed to operate all the digital displays in a sports facility.ANC’s VisionSOFT is the first 3D interface capable of managing multiple real-time media streams for every scoreboard, digital advertising screen, concession stand or any concourse and suite video display in an arena or stadium. The advanced media control package offers instant playback with a single touch of a button, permitting the operator to easily flash one image, stat, animation or emergency instruction on every display in the facility. ANC’s newest software system is the only interface that displays uncompressed video in the industry, eliminating all distortion. Screens can mimic the look of a traditional matrix scoreboard or advertisement and then dissolve that scoreboard into a clear animated image. The 3D interface presents the operator with the appearance of interacting directly with the output board, simplifying management of multiple displays.“The launch of VisionSOFT enables teams to simplify the creation and delivery of sponsor messages, real-time game statistics and arena information to fans,” said Mark Stross, executive vice president of technology development of ANC Sports. “We are excited to expand our full service marketing capabilities by providing stadium and arena management who are either considering new visual systems or have grown accustomed to their current displays with a single control solution.”Specifically designed for live events, VisionSOFT supports live video streams and is capable of real-time video playback at high resolutions. The interface allows ANC operators to create basic graphics and text throughout the event which can be added to previously rendered animations, allowing for up to date sponsor or game messages. Operators will also be able to control the system remotely or schedule an automated running of the software. Additionally, VisionSOFT employs plug-in architecture allowing for the development of external components, which make it extremely flexible. One such plug-in is ANC’s Data Interface Solution (DIS) and will allow the arena to display real-time statistics and blend them with advertiser names and animated graphics. ANC’s first installation of VisionSOFT debuted at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland for the 2005-06 National Basketball season. ANC technicians control all the arena’s LED displays and the new center-hung scoreboard at “The Q.” About ANC SportsANC Sports Enterprises, LLC, a full service marketing company, specializes in providing complete signage solutions that generate maximum sponsorship and advertising revenue while enhancing the overall fan experience.
