Texas A&M to install largest video display in NCAA


Come this fall, there won’t be a bad seat in the house at College Station. The Texas A&M Aggies are currently in the process of providing fans with the largest video display in all of college football at Kyle Field.

The new focal point of the stadium will consist of a 47-foot high by 163-foot wide LED video display. It will also be the first display at the college level to feature 1080 resolution. It is set to be installed prior to the start of the 2014 season.

University officials visited football venues around the country to compare display technology and were very impressed with the quality of chosen designer Daktronics.

“As part of the redevelopment of Kyle Field, it was paramount to find the best technology available to showcase Texas A&M’s unique in-game experience and traditions on game day,” says Director of Athletics Eric Hyman. “We found that the Daktronics technology is highly regarded in the industry, and we look forward to a strong partnership in providing the 12th Man an unparalleled experience in college football.”

Texas A&M is currently in the midst of a $450 million project to redevelop Kyle Field into the finest collegiate football stadium in the country. As part of the improvements, capacity at the facility will increase to 102,500.
