The Philadelphia Eagles announced a partnership with Panasonic on Wednesday that includes adding brand new video boards to Lincoln Financial Field. This partnership will lead the two year Lincoln Financial Field revitalization project into the final stretch and will be finished by August 2014. The Eagles claim these Panasonic video boards will have the sharpest clarity in the NFL. Not only are the Eagles aiming to increase the quality of the fan experience, but they could be aiming to make the LFF a more appealing option to host a Super Bowl in the future, as speculated by some.
From the release:
Panasonic Eco Solutions North America has been selected by the Philadelphia Eagles to lead an important part of Lincoln Financial Field’s revitalization by spearheading a comprehensive LED display solution throughout the facility. Highlighted by two end zone video boards totaling over 9,400 square feet, Panasonic will install a number of video displays in and around the stadium in time for the upcoming 2014 NFL season.
Spectators will enjoy the highest-definition boards in the National Football League featuring two 10mm pitch video screens. The north and south boards will measure approximately 27 feet tall by 192 feet wide and 27 feet tall by 160 feet wide, respectively.
The comprehensive solution will also include several 20mm pitch displays, including:
· 11 fascia-mounted ribbon boards totaling more than 2,000 linear feet
· One 335-square-foot video display in Headhouse Plaza
· Two 334-square-foot and two 546-square-foot marquee displays at street level outside the stadium
· Two video displays measuring approximately 45 feet tall by 18 feet wide and 15 feet tall by 30 feet wide in the Eagles Nest at the North end of the stadium
· One 390-foot circular ribbon display in the Eagles Nest
The heightened fan experience at Lincoln Financial Field will also extend to six 6mm LED displays on the club level and over 1,200 new high-definition Panasonic displays around the stadium.
Take a look at the projected images of these video boards.
