The University of Michigan's "Big House" Gets Bright Makeover with Cree LEDs

Nov 3, 2011 This year, the University of Michigan Wolverines and their fans enjoy a new look to Michigan Stadium, now complete with newly upgraded scoreboards from Lighthouse Technologies. The state-of-the-art video displays and scoring systems feature more than 3 million Screen Master® high-brightness LEDs by Cree, delivering crystal-clear, high definition images to fans throughout “The Big House.” 

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. 

Cree-powered Lighthouse LED video screens are also installed at the University of Michigan’s Yost Ice Center, home to Wolverine hockey, as part of its first ever renovation, and the Crisler Area, home to Michigan basketball since 1967, replacing the center-hung scoreboard that was installed in 1998 with a four-sided LED video system complete with 14 LED video displays.
