New high-tech scoreboards coming to Gillette
The Kraft Group said that workers have begun the process of installing two new high-definition LED video scoreboards at Gillette Stadium.
The Kraft Group, which owns Gillette Stadium, the New England Patriots, and the New England Revolution, said the removal of the old video boards has already begun and the installation of the new boards is scheduled to be completed by mid-August.
“With the size of these boards, along with the vivid color, image clarity, and their graphic capabilities, these high-definition video boards come alive, Kraft Group president Jonathan Kraft said in a statement. “The resolution is incredible. This type of video board simply didnt 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 its exciting to anticipate what in-game technological advancements will be made during the next decade.”
One board measures 41.5-feet high and 164-feet wide; using a standard 37-inch HDTV, 1,700 televisions would be needed to fill those dimensions, the Kraft Group said.
The new boards were designed and manufactured by Daktronics inc. of Brookings, S.D., the Kraft Group said.
