It's probably a different manufacturer.  Regardless, it will be nice despite what anyone else has.  I'm hoping it will be similar to the Rutger's University scoreboard that's in the brochure.  The Copperas Cove board is also nice.

Wow.  :o  That's huge.

I found the PA News article about the Nederland video board and it's 14' x 19'.  Both are nice size for a high school stadium.

Not sure if this the actual product that Fair-Play is providing for Indian Stadium, but it matches the specs mentioned (10mm) and Barco is the supplier for Fair-Play scoreboards.  Barco is world-class leader in LED technology.  Hope that's what they're buying.

That vendor installs Barco video boards as described in the links above.  4.4 Trillion colors.  Awesome.    ;D

For an idea of what the video board will look like, the HD Barco board at Shotwell Stadium is 14'x24' compared to the 16.6'x27' board announced for Indian Stadium.

Wonder how many commercials Indian fans will see?

I wouldn't mind running one of the cameras as long as they would let me have footage for the Internet.

It should also provide a to way expand the journalism department into broadcast video (if they don't do that already).  With three cameras , they could produce some good quality highlight film of each home game.

Has anyone heard how the advertising sales are going for the new scoreboard? Channel 7 shows only three spots sold but I have a feeling that clip does not get updated.

The PNGISD channel now shows only seven spots remaining on the scoreboard for ads. Things are looking good.

There's a lot of community concern with the scoreboard expenditure.  And it's serving as political ammo as well. 

But long term it's a win-win for the community and the advertisers.  It WILL pay for itself and will help entice some area playoff games each playoff season.  That's more money in the coffers.
 
Shorter term the advertisers are guaranteed a captive audience of 50,000+ fans per season between all the sporting events.  And the kids and fans have a great addition to the stadium. 

And I'm betting the schools will be taken care of as rightfully expected by the taxpayers.  Maybe I'm too positive but that's the way I see it.

I agree with you IndianFan.  PLUS,  the advertisers can also write the expense off, since it's going to a school.

just out of curiosity, and maybe someone has already answered this and I missed it..... what happened to the scoreboard they took down?  Is it able to be recycled for another school?  Maybe painted and re-worded and used for baseball?

My understanding is it's being moved to the other end of the stadium.  They're just adding a full color video board to the top and a small amber board to the bottom.  And of course the structure to hold it and the advertising signs.

thanks...I had read at one time somewhere on one of these topics that we were just discarding what Total had given us.  I may have also misread it.  But it is good to know that we are still using it and just adding to it.

The small amber board was also part of the previous scoreboard.  It is all being reused.  If you look at the picture I posted, you can pick out the old parts of it.

Drove by today and they are starting to put the old part of the new scoreboard up.  Also saw some stirrings on the home side of the stadium couldn't tell what, but it looked like they are setting some steel maybe for the base of the new stands. Also field was completely covered in what looked like a white rock like substance, things are starting to move.

Not to sound dumb, but what is the rock for?  To make the ground harder? ???   No, does that help with drainage or something?
