The Patriots announced Wednesday that they are in the process of installing two new high-definition Daktronics LED video scoreboards at Gillette Stadium.
According to the press release issued by the team, the south end zone will have the larger of the two screens at 41.5-feet by 164-feet scoreboard, which will be a ‘true’ high-definition video screen. Meanwhile, the screen in the north end zone 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.
‘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 press release issued 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.’
