As we all know the Jacksonville Jaguars are installing new scoreboards, the world's largest HD LED video display's to be exact. Daktronics, the company installing the scoreboards, have sent out a press release containing a photo of what the scoreboards will look like.
And they're quite nice, as you can see. Don't forget, there is one on each endzone.
Each display on either endzone has 21,700 square feet of active display area
"As the construction takes shape, we can all envision what an impact this will have on EverBank Field and the game-day experience," Jaguars owner Shad Khan said in a press release sent out on Monday. "And that was one of the reasons from the beginning for embarking on this ambitious project. We want EverBank Field to be a world-class destination, and we want to bring energy and attention to Downtown Jacksonville. Our goal is to offer best-in-class amenities and the best in-stadium experience for our fans and for everyone who visits Jacksonville and EverBank Field."
We can watch the scoreboards and the endzones being renovated with the Jaguars live cam and you can already see seats being stripped out and preparation for the scoreboards to go up.
"We owe our fans and this community nothing less than the best, and these enhancements will be the best," Jaguars president Mark Lamping said in the press release. "These stadium upgrades will drastically change the in-stadium experience and create a truly unique environment that you cannot get at home. This will be an eye-opener and an attention-getter for Jacksonville."
Not only will there be two new scoreboards, but there will also be other new signage and displays across the stadium. Below the north end zone display will be a display measuring nearly 10 feet high by 320 feet wide.
via the press release, the following will also be added:
On the opposite end of the field, there will be two ribbon displays on both levels of fascia in the seating bowl below the south end zone main display. Each ribbon display will feature a 15HD pixel layout. The top display, measuring more than 3 feet high by 365 feet wide, is curved to appear the same length as the bottom display, which will measure more than 3 feet high by 295 feet wide.
Each side of the field will receive a ribbon display along the seating fascia, each measuring more than 3 feet high by 573 feet wide and featuring a 15HD pixel layout.
Four new displays will replace the existing displays in each corner of the stadium. These new displays will each measure approximately 18 feet high by 32 feet wide and feature a 15HD pixel layout.
Two additional displays will be installed above each tunnel at opposite corners of the stadium. These displays will each measure 6 feet high by 24 feet wide and will also feature a 15HD pixel layout.
The construction is expected to finish this summer, prior to the start of the 2014 NFL season.
