Courtesy of Mark Cuban’s Twitter feed comes news of the American Airlines Center getting an A/V makeover this summer, resulting in the first and only HD video scoreboards in the NBA or NHL. Rather than clumsily reword it, here are the relevant deets:
During the Summer months of 2009, American Airlines Center is tripling the size of its scoreboards with new video boards capable of showing the live action in stunning high-definition. A total of six video scoreboards will be installed offering a mammoth 5,616 square feet of digital HD 1080 sights. Four 18’ X 30’ video scoreboards will be installed in the arena’s center display and two 24’ X 72’ video walls will be located in the North and South ends of the arena.
The AAC is also getting a fancy new speaker system. And contrary to what the headline says, this upgrade is happening because of the 2010 All-Star Weekend festivities. As far as you know.
