Phantoms Arena is home to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers.
For the 2014-15 season TS Sports has installed Lighthouse Pv6 (6mm), Pv10 (10mm), and Fv16 (16mm) LED video panels to create a spectacular, state-of-the-art center-hung LED LED display, and surround fascia display, totaling 15.7 million total LEDs.
LED Video Details
There are two main Lighthouse LED video displays inside the PPL Center. The first, an impressive center-hung display, features 17′ high tight-pitch 6mm displays on all four sides, measuring 22-24′ across. Wrapping around the bottom of the center-hung LED display is a squared LED ring, 3.15′ high by 82′ around. A 2.5′ high LED fascia display circles 859′ around Phantoms Arena. The displays provide the audience with sponsor and event information before and after events, while serving as main or auxiliary LED video sources during a wide variety of PPL Center events.
“Lighthouse is excited to be a part of the PPL Center and Phantoms hockey,” said Ed Whitaker, General Manager of Lighthouse – The Americas. “Our tight-pitched indoor displays are ideal for a fast-paced game such as hockey.”
