The University of Texas has picked ANC Sports Enterprises LLC to renovate and operate the massive video display at the south end zone of Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, also known as the “Godzillatron.”

As part of the $4.5 million project, Purchase, N.Y.-based ANC will work with Mitsubishi Electric to improve the LED display by increasing the pixel resolution to more than 2.7 million pixels, according to a statement from the company.

The video display will be the same size as before, about 56 feet high and 134 feet wide, making it the fourth-largest screen among college football stadiums.

ANC’s other projects include the video display for the Seattle Mariners — the largest screen in Major League Baseball – and video displays for the Cleveland Cavaliers home court and a jumbo screen for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The upgrades to the screen is expected to be completed by late July.
