Patriots Announce Installation of New HD Video Boards

The New England Patriots announced the installation of new high-definition video boards at Gillette Stadium, which have been described as the second biggest in the National Football League, trailing only the ones installed in the new Texas Stadium by the Dallas Cowboys.

"With the size of these boards, along with the vivid color, image clarity and their graphic capabilities, these high-definition video boards come alive," said The Kraft Group President Jonathan Kraft in a statement released by the team. "The resolution is incredible. This type of video board simply didn’t exist eight years ago when the stadium was built. It is amazing to see how far the video technology has come in the past decade and it’s exciting to anticipate what in-game technological advancements will be made during the next decade."

Additional details from the Patriots website:

- The south end zone will feature the largest of the two video displays. Within the 41.5-foot by 164-foot scoreboard will be a “true” high-definition video screen. The state-of-the-art system will feature the latest Daktronics LED video technology to present live and recorded video images, real-time stats, colorful animation and vivid graphics. The overall south end zone display system will feature approximately 6,800 square feet of digital real estate.

- The overall dimension of the north end zone scoreboard will be approximately 45-feet high by 100-feet wide, with the digital LED technology totaling nearly 4,500 square feet.

- Together, the new end zone displays will provide more than five times the screen size compared to the two old 27-by-48-foot screens, and will feature much greater resolution.
