While watching a game at the Ohio State Buckeyes Stadium, OSU alumni and member of the “Friends of Sulsberger Stadium,” Mark Watson said the OSU screen “looked the best it’s ever been.” Mr. Watson then started the ball rolling with NBC affiliate Whiz Media Group to see if they could help Zanesville H.S. obtain a similar screen.
LSI had upgraded the Ohio State Stadium screen with new processors and the latest version of LSI’s proprietary software that drives the LED. This caused the screen to look more vivid and brighter which caught the eye of Mr. Watson. After receiving the quote to replace the existing scoreboard with the LSI SmartVision LED video display and virtual scoreboard, a deal was struck with Whiz Media Group, who bought the LED display and gave it to the school.
Zanesville’s new screen is a 20 mm pixel pitch and measures 22’ wide by 12 ½’ tall. This outdoor screen utilizes a new more energy efficient pixel block design measuring in at 16 x 24 pixels and drawing only 62.5 watts. This efficiency has been achieved due to advances in the manufacturing process and LED driving technology.
Since the new LSI SmartVision LED display will be used as a virtual scoreboard, and advertising display LSI’s Impact Software is used to manage both of those tasks.
In addition to the LED video display, LSI's Lexington fixtures were added to light the walkway to the stadium. LSI Doral Small floodlights are mounted to the Lexington poles to highlight the recognition wall.
