Aggies to have biggest video board
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M says Kyle Field will have the largest video screen in college football for the 2014 season.
A&M officials say the LED video display will be 47 feet high and 163 feet wide and is the first in college sports to have 1080 resolution (1,080 is the number of lines that create the image).
The display, made by Daktronics, will be installed in the south end zone. Two smaller displays also will be installed, one in each corner at the north end of the stadium. Those will be 36 feet by 54 feet.
The last portion of the video upgrade will be five ribbon displays placed around the seating areas of the stadium, ranging from 160 to 510 feet long.
