Original Story:
The team released this rendering of the new scoreboard that is currently being installed. The new scoreboard will be manufactured and installed by Daktronics of Brookings, SD, and will feature one of the largest square footage viewing areas of any indoor scoreboard currently used in the world. A new HD production control facility for the scoreboard is being installed by Diversified Systems of Santa Clara, CA and designed by WJHW. The scoreboard will contain four large screens—two will face the center seating areas, measuring approximately 27’ high by 48’ long, and two will face each end of the seating bowl, measuring approximately 21’ high by 25’ wide. The new display boards will contain over 8.5 million pixels in total. Fans seated along the center areas will face a 1080p full HD screen that stretches from 3-point line to 3-point line for basketball, and spans both blue lines for hockey. It seems to be a part of a growing trend for this new style scoreboard, where the sideline screens are much larger than the end zone screens. Could this be the new standard for sports arena scoreboards?
