As part of the arena’s 2020 transformation, the first-of-its-kind, kinetic center-hung scoreboard has been installed at the Wells Fargo Center. The scoreboard, designed by ANC and manufactured and engineered by TAIT, transforms, expands and compresses in a quick 40 seconds enhancing the fan experience and fully immersing Philadelphia Flyers and Philadelphia 76ers fans into the game like never before.
The kinetic center-hung scoreboard amplifies the fan experience with its massive 4k video display that shows gnarly pre-game content and also brings the game and players’ statistics closer to the audience than ever before.
Weighing in at 90,000 pounds, the entire scoreboard is made up of three individual elements:
In order to achieve the seamless video display as the scoreboard transforms, TAIT Navigator cues each element to move into position within a third of a millimeter (which is about the same thickness as 4 sheets of paper). Additionally, TAIT Navigator syncs with the arena’s lighting and video systems to conduct pre-programmed show sequences.
The end-result of this project is a culmination of ANC’s expertise in experiential design and technology implementation and TAIT’s creative engineering and manufacturing skill sets.
“It is an honor to have our team be part of this innovative undertaking that delivers a stunning visual spectacular. This technological advancement will have a major impact on the game experience.”
– James ‘Winky’ Fairorth, President & CEO at TAIT.
