Fans should be dazzled this fall by the new Doak Campbell Stadium videoboards videoboards, as Florida State University unveiled plans for 9,368 square feet of LED video displays, set to be running for the Sept. 10 season opener.
The entire structure in the stadium’s north end will be over 78.4’ feet tall and almost 120’ feet wide; the new system is three-times larger and more than two-times higher than the old system. The main screen in the North End Zone will boast a larger-than-life, true high-definition image (1080p) which represents more than a 250 percent increase in overall resolution. The new 35’H x 74’W South End Zone display will also entertain fans with a true high-definition image (660p), 300% larger and a 250 percent improvement over the previous display. The new LED screens represent some of the largest and highest resolution screen systems in any college football stadium. To complete the visual experience, FSU will upgrade, replace and expand more than 320 linear feet of LED ribbon boards throughout the newly constructed canopy and South End Zone. The boards are from Panasonic; Anthony James Partners is assisting with the installation.
Also on tap: a new sound system.
“We are pleased to be taking another step in making the football game day experience for our fans, season ticket holders, student body and student-athletes the best that it can be,” said Florida State Director of Athletics Stan Wilcox in a press statement. “While our former video boards were state-of-the-art when installed, the image quality of the new boards will be second to none.
“The addition of these new boards, along with the new Champions Club, the new sound system, and other planned improvements, will make the Doak Campbell experience as exciting as it has ever been.”
