Not only will Boston College's new video boards double in size, but when fans fill the stadium for the September 5th home opener against Pitt they'll bask in the glory of video boards with a visual quality that ranks among the best in the nation.
According to the Boston College release, you'd be able to fit 97 60-inch televisions into one of their two new end zone displays, and from the sounds of it, the quality of the picture is going to be nothing short of mind-blowing.
Each end zone video board will tower 19 feet high and about 54 feet wide, providing more than 1,000 square feet of 13HD technology. The 13HD technology is something that only 15 other college or NFL teams currently use. Boston College will be the first team in the Northeast region of the US, and the first in the ACC with the capabilities. South Carolina is the only other team on the East coast using the technology, per the release.
The Broncos, 49ers, Panthers, and Steelers are among the NFL teams to use 13HD, and if you've ever seen a game at Washington, Stanford, Wisconsin, or Texas A&M you've experienced firsthand the type of quality that Boston College is adding.
Along with the video boards, LED ribbon displays will wrap around the entire stadium, adding quite the visual appeal to those in the stands. When it's all said and done, I'm confident that fans will be more than pleased with the new experience.
