Company to create video display for Super Bowl

AD Systems will install a 126-foot LED display at Raymond James Stadium.

FORT MYERS — Fort Myers-based AD Systems Inc. acquired a contract to create a high-resolution video board for Tampa's Raymond James Stadium in preparation for Super Bowl LV in 2021.

AD Systems Inc. will install a 126-foot LED display in the stadium, which is home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The display will be in the stadium's new 60,000-square-foot club level lounge in the West Stadium Club, according to a press release. The board is expected to be made of nearly four million diodes and consist of 281 trillion colors. The statement says the display is part of $150 million in renovations to the stadium. The company has produced and installed digital displays for the stadium since 1998.

“We are contributing to a magnificent venue in a specialized way and keeping the talent of our software and hardware engineers in the state of Florida, where we have found decades-worth of success,” says AD Systems founder Jim Thomas in a statement. “When 2021 comes around, guests will not only bear witness to football history, but take full advantage of the product we strove to perfect and unveil at the most popular sporting event in the world.”

AD Systems has been involved in other large-scale LED video board projects, including at Hard Rock Cafe Orlando, Seminole Indian Casino, Full Sail University, University of Northern Iowa and Bank Atlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale.
