GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers are installing Lambeau Field's new high-definition video boards right on schedule.
The giant Mitsubishi high-definition video monitors will tower over the stadium’s end zones.
The new video boards, which are four times as large as the previous video boards, measure 48 feet high and 108 feet wide and are equivalent to about 1,110 40-inch flat panel TVs.
"There are no finer scoreboards in the country," said Packers Vice President of Sales and Marketing Tim Connolly. "It's a combination of the best technology, a large enough scale that fans can appreciate it, and the fact that we have a control room that can deliver it to people the way they want."
The monitors are scheduled to be complete for the Packers shareholders meeting in July.
In addition, both the north and south boards will have a pair of adjacent auxiliary screens that are 31 feet high and 18 feet wide. Those screens will display statistics and scores from around the NFL along with other information.
The Packers will also employ 8 new HD, in-house video cameras, which is double the number from the old system. The number of feeds from the TV network cameras also will double from four to eight.
Additionally, the replay capacity is increasing from 8 to 12. Overall, the system has doubled the number of camera feeds from 8 to 16 and the number of replay angles available has jumped from 8 to 12.
It's part of a $143 million renovation project at Lambeau Field.
