The new construction was approved by the Board of Trustees, Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning. Capturion Network Inc., a Laurel, Miss., based outdoor sign and video display company will serve as the project contractor.
With the new light emitting diode (LED) technology, the board can serve as a single video display or be divided into multiple windows to show a variety of statistics, graphics, animation, replays, and live video. It also provides ample room for sponsorship displays.
"We appreciate the support our fans have provided our football program through the years, and this new video display board will enhance our fans' experience at a Mississippi State football game," Byrne said. "This display area will provide entertaining video as well as statistical information in a way that has never before been seen at Scott Field."
A new sound system will be located in a cabinet located above the video display. The state-of-the-art sound system will be designed and installed by Pro Sound, an audio company based in Miami, Fla.
