Video board installation underway at Heinz Field
A second HD video board is being installed at Heinz Field in time for the 2014 season.
Steelers fans at Heinz Field will have a better view of replays and game action this season thanks to the addition of a second Daktronics HD LED video board that is currently being installed for the 2014 season.
The new video board will be in the northwest corner of Heinz Field, giving fans who had limited view of the main Daktronics board in the south end a perfect vantage point, as well as others throughout the stadium courtesy of the board’s clarity and contrasts.
The board, which will improve the fan experience at Heinz Field, measures approximately 35 feet high by 72 feet wide and will feature an incredible13HD pixel layout. It will highlight live video and instant replays, and can be divided into separate windows for showing statistics and graphics.
There are multiple levels of protection from the many weather elements that can hit during football season, keeping the display board running regardless of conditions.
Construction of the video board by Mascaro Construction, aided by a 500 ton crane, is scheduled to be completed in late June and will be ready when the Steelers open the preseason against the Buffalo Bills on Aug. 16.
