Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan has been aggressive in not only reshaping the public perception of the franchise, but in upgrading the entire experience of being a fan of the Jaguars. After extensive stadium upgrades last year, Shad Khan put up a substantial amount of his own money to build what should be the most impressive piece of video technology not only in the NFL, but in the world.
Daktronics’ – the company installing the video displays – recent press release has a rendering of the scoreboards and they are glorious.
From the press release:
"The two massive end zone displays will each measure 60 feet high by 362 feet wide and feature a 13HD pixel layout. A goal of these displays was to have three side-by-side HD video images for multiple replay shots and other video content. A section of 60 feet high by 106 feet wide gives them the needed real estate for such a feat, with an extra 44-foot-wide buffer space for graphics and other content.They are still capable of showing one large image to highlight live video and instant replays and can also be divided into any combination of separate windows to show a variety of vivid graphics, colorful animations, up-to-the-minute statistics, scoring information and sponsor advertisements."
This is just another bullet point in the ever-growing list of accomplishments under Shad Khan’s belt as the owner of the franchise. While some ignorant members of the national media continue to throw out the idea of moving the franchise, Khan provides more reasons why the team isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
