Colonial Life Arena is getting spruced up this offseason.
Work is under way on adding a new video board that hangs over the court. It will have screens across all four sides, a change from the old one with screens inside a larger, more standard scoreboard.
According to Daktronics, the new video board will feature “four convex-curved main displays with tight 4-millimeter line spacing to bring excellent image clarity and contrast to fans throughout the venue.”
Each side of the video board will measure approximately 12 feet high by 20 feet wide and be capable of showing one large image or multiple zones. Those zones can show any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
A 360-degree ribbon display will be installed above the arena’s suites and below the upper bowl.
