A larger, higher definition scoreboard and an improved sound system are part of a $7 million improvement project at the Ohio Stadium, 10TV News reported Tuesday.
The new high-definition scoreboard will be 42 feet by 124 feet. The current scoreboard is 30 feet by 90 feet.
The Panasonic scoreboard will feature Surface Mount Diode LED technology that provides a sharper, clearer and brighter picture with extra-wide viewing angles of more than 140 degrees, according to The Ohio State University.
The new south stands’ ribbon board will be 4 feet by 170 feet and will display statistics and scores and will include a section for closed captioning.
The new sound system is a Pro Sound line array audio system with a cluster of 25 speakers on each side of the scoreboard.
Speakers also will be installed under decks of the stadium. Older speakers will be replaced with new speakers fitted into the existing framework, 10TV News reported.
The improvements will include changing over 223 standard televisions to high-definition sets in public areas, concession stands and concourses, according to the school.
