The main purpose of this paper is to extend to a situation involving matrix valued orthogonal polynomials and spherical functions, a result that traces its origin and its importance to work of Claude Shannon in laying the mathematical foundations of information theory and to a remarkable series of papers by D. Slepian, H. Landau and H. Pollak. To our knowledge, this is the first example showing in a non-commutative setup that a bispectral property implies that the corresponding global operator of "time and band limiting" admits a commuting local operator.This is a noncommutative analog of the famous prolate spheroidal wave operator.
