The Jacksonville Jaguars are in the process of adding world-class video displays to Everbank Field. Once the new HD LED displays have been erected, they will officially be the largest screens on earth.
The boards, which will be behind each end zone, are wide enough to stretch from goalpost to goalpost. According to manufacturer Daktronics, when combined, the displays have enough surface area to cover nearly the entire field of play.
Each display will be long enough to reach just more than the distance from the goal post in one end zone to the goal post in the other end zone, and each display boasts more than 21,700 square feet of active display area – almost enough to cover the entire field of play when combined.
Following are specs on the new system:
The two massive end zone displays will each measure 60 feet high by 362 feet wide and feature a 13HD pixel layout. A goal of these displays was to have three side-by-side HD video images for multiple replay shots and other video content. A section of 60 feet high by 106 feet wide gives them the needed real estate for such a feat, with an extra 44-foot-wide buffer space for graphics and other content.
They are still capable of showing one large image to highlight live video and instant replays and can also be divided into any combination of separate windows to show a variety of vivid graphics, colorful animations, up-to-the-minute statistics, scoring information and sponsor advertisements.
What kind of product fans will witness on the field remains to be seen. However, the in-game experience at EverBank Field should be one rivaled by few teams in the league.
