Indiana Pacers Score with New Video Board Powered by Vista Systems’ Spyder

The NBA’s Indiana Pacers have unveiled a new center-hung video board at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse designed to deliver an experience fans just can’t get at home – and a Spyder is a big part of it.

ANC Sports Enterprises, LLC of Purchase, New York, an industry leader in providing integrated signage, design and marketing solutions for sports and commercial facilities, integrated the Vista Systems Spyder X20 with ANC’s VisionSOFT control system to feed the huge new displays with entertaining and informative content for Pacers fans.

The Pacers display is more than five times larger than the previous video board in Bankers Life Fieldhouse. ANC Sports designed the new installation with slightly curving, twin sideline-facing 6mm LED HD screens each measuring 50′ wide x 21′ high and featuring 2560 x 1060 pixels.

They are bookended by a pair of baseline-facing 6mm LED video displays each measuring 25′ wide x 14′ high with 1280 x 736 pixels. In addition, two LED matrix displays, measuring 23′ wide x 10′ high, are mounted above the upper deck at either end of the venue where they show stats, replays and other game-related information.

“What’s really unique about the Pacers’ installation is being able receive and display two side-by-side 720p feeds, while still including a lower third for scoring and statistical information,” explains Chris Mascatello, executive vice president, technology sales for ANC Sports.

“Vista Systems’ Spyder plays an instrumental role in the display system. Working jointly with VisionSOFT, the Spyder enables us to feed the best resolution across the entire display system.”

ANC Sports also directed the overhaul of the arena’s video control room, which drives content to the massive displays. “It’s a full 1080p control room with 3G infrastructure and one of the most advanced in the world,” says Mascatello.

The addition of the Bankers Life Fieldhouse continues Vista Spyder’s tradition of supporting the largest sports displays in their respective categories including hockey for the Tampa Bay Lighting, NASCAR at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and the NFL’s Tennessee Titans’ LP Field.
