Pictured above, last year’s pre-game festivities. And as we mentioned last week, this year’s will look something like the video below (but without all the Cavaliers stuff):

The Sixers officially announced the purchase of the projection technology, and now we know more of what it will all entail. According to Max Rappaport at

The Sixers plan to use the technology during the national anthem and pregame introductions, as well as during some halftime shows. The projection system is also capable of displaying up-to-the-second information and interacting with users on the court, a feature that Sixers Live Events Manager Derrick Hayes said fans will see at some point in the future.

I can’t even imagine how over-the-top and amazingly patriotic that National Anthem projection is going to be. I can already hear the call of a proud bald eagle. The projection system consists of eight projectors that are will be installed throughout the arena to turn the whole court into a canvas. And it’s rigorous work. Rappaport also reports that the video, created by Quince Imaging and The Famous Group, will take roughly 45 days to complete, and will synchronize video boards throughout the arena with the projection system. And if those 45 days are completed on schedule, that means the whole thing will be ready to go with just about two weeks to go before the season, a full two years ahead of when the team will be ready.

  1. They need to offer tickets just to see the opening. Sell $1 tickets to people who will leave before the game starts and I bet it quadruples their attendance since nobody will want to watch the 76ers, including this nobody.

  2. I agree with Mr. Miyagi. The Canadiens use this technology for their pregame shows. It looks far better on ice.

  3. Wow, this is a great use of technology. Comcast uses this on their picture wall at the Comcast Center.
    Fans attending the game will really enjoy this.

  4. After 3 minutes of that…I`ll be BORED and i`ll have to actually watch the 76ers play..Can they play that AGAIN..
