Poor Nick.

Also if we're being technical I think everyone is an employee of the forum outside of hockey ops.

Yep. I'm expecting it to be Dallas cowboys sized

Actually I'm sure it will be amazing and top of the line.

Awhile back I remember someone saying Vinik wasn't happy with the LEDs going out all the time in the current one and he was going to replace it at the end of the season. Guess they were right haha.

And when I say the new #tblightning scoreboard will be big, think Dallas Cowboys equivalent in ratio to a hockey arena #YesThatBig

In the words of Ilya Bryzgalov, it will be humongous big

Wow. I was just kidding.

A rep just posted 30'x50'. That's pretty massive for the arena.

I'll be interested in seeing a mockup or some conceptual images. There's a fine line between bigger being better or just being distracting.

Just so we're (read: I'm) clear, the scoreboard is...what exactly? The jumbotron thing hanging over the center of the ice, or something else?

The new suspended video display system will include four large video displays using the latest Daktronics video technology in a rectangular configuration. The two largest displays will measure approximately 28 feet high by 50 feet wide. With 1,296 lines of resolution, the largest two displays will present live and recorded video in true high definition, with the capability to show multiple zones of content, creating a digital canvas on which to present video, animation, graphics, scores and statistics in unlimited layouts.



The two “smaller” suspended displays will be positioned at the ends of the larger displays, creating incredible viewing for all fans in the venue. Dimensions of these displays are approximately 28 feet high by 20 feet wide, tapered at the bottom. By comparison, the arena’s current video board measures 16 feet high by 28 feet wide on all four sides. The new board will offer four times as much display space on the sidelines as the old board and two times as much display space on the end zones.

People were talking about it at the storm game on monday. It sounds like it will be amazing. They are really putting a ton of money into the forum. Guess it means the bolts will be sticking it out in Tampa for the long run
