Big House’s New Videoboards 4,000 Square Feet Each

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – The Big House is getting bigger TVs.

The University of Michigan announced Tuesday that TS Sports/Lighthouse will install a pair of LED video displays – measuring about 4,000 square feet each – in its football stadium by August.

The Texas-based company will also put center-hung videoboards in Crisler and Yost Arena for the basketball and hockey programs.

Michigan Stadium’s videoboards will be 47 feet high and 85 feet wide, making them about 40 percent larger than the previous ones installed in 1998.

The athletic department has budgeted $20 million for the videoboards in the three venues and the conversion of its production studio.
