Design and Details of New Griz Vision Released
If bigger and brighter mean better, University of Montana Grizzly football fans are in for a real treat this fall. How much bigger, you ask?
On Tuesday the University of Montana and ANC released the design of the new video display system which will transform the game day experience at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
The video display system will be completed for the 2016 football season. It will feature a main video screen that measures 32.13’ high by 55.75 wide, approximately two times the size of the old display. Featuring live video, team branding and statistics, the video screen will encompass the entire old structure, while a new sound system and speakers will be added to either side of the new display.
On each side of the main video structure will be 12’ by 31’ displays that will replace the existing rotating advertising panels. These displays will be used for fan engagement and to display sponsorships, statistics, and game information.
Funding for the new video board comes from Learfield, UM Athletics' long-time exclusive multimedia rights holder, whose local Grizzly Sports Properties team works in complete alignment with the entire athletic administration. ANC is also a Learfield company.
So, here's hoping the cameras find you in the stands this season and plaster you up on the new Griz Vision. You're going to look awesome! Special thanks to UM Sports Information Director Eric Taber for providing us the details.
