Planning for upgrades started in October, 2011.
Construction started the day after the final game of the 2012 season.
Significant technology focus to off-season improvements.
New control room designed by Sony.
Crew of 35 staff the scoreboard control room on game days.
Required full conversion of control room to current high-definition technology. .
Increased Instant Replay capabilities providing 4x the number of possible camera angles / broadcast feeds. New NFL policy requires
stadiums to show instant replay of every play so this upgrade will allow us to provide fans in the stadium with the largest number of
views and best view options.
New IPTV control center providing the ability for independent control of every in-stadium television monitor. Utilization of IPTV is a key
strategy in improvement of on-concourse atmosphere.
