If one of you are radio station callers, PLEASE ask about closed captioning. It has to be asked. I am going attempt to write a letter sometime this weekend but need to know their intent regarding captioning options.

I'm curious - what exactly is close captioned on the existing video displays? (And I only ask that because I've never considered these huge displays in noisy venues such as reliant to really have any audio function to begin with).

I'm ASSUMING everything that's said over the PA system (NOT what's being broadcast on regular TV). The current captioning is poorly located. It is to the right and upper of the screens on both ends of the stadium. PAST the advertisements which is why it's poorly located. Needs to be closer to the screen. Like I said, I still appreciated it tremendously.

yes the Texans and the Rodeo will loan some of the money to get the project going and then will be paid back by the sports authority through the taxes collected for the hotel/rental car tax

I'm going to guess that closed captioning will still be displayed on this new video board. I agree with the earlier comments saying that the replay video will take up a 16x9 area in the center of the board, and advertising, stats, closed captioning, etc... will be displayed on the sides of the replay video area. just a guess, though.

So yeah that is an extraordinary long video board. Is gotta have digital ads and stuff cause if it were full video picture Aj will look like a 400lbs nose tackle. There's goin to be a bunch of different images on the screen at once. I have a feeling that the actual game replays and stuff aren't goin to be much bigger than we already have. What's the size of them now

I think it's great and hope it is similar to Cowboys than Toyota. IMO, Toyota's new screen is too busy.

Glad some of the fans have soften a bit about the big screens because I remember the comments about ours up to hoping someone would kick a ball and break it.

The new boards are expected to cost about $16 million. Commissioners are still negotiating the details but tell us they will be paid for with county restoration funds. The Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will loan the county money up-front.

"The money that goes into this R&R fund comes from hotel/motel tax, rental car tax, from the ticket tax," Shafer said.

"So is there any chance that ticket prices could go up to help pay for this?" we asked Shafer.

"No, not at all," he said.
Seems like it is being paid for as it should. I read the old boards are at the end of their life cycle anyway, so its not like spending for spending's sake.

Ntiro - Sounds to me like you should not only contact the Texans but also the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation about Closed Captioning. I would think all events....especially the rodeo would benefit from an upgraded CC system.....My hearing is fine and I can't make out the PA 1/2 the time.

Yeah, the south EZ's board's little pixels go out pretty regularly. I thought they should have been replaced last year or the year before.

I love my city:

First domed stadium-------> Eighth Wonder of the World

Invention of astroturf

Invention of the "flak-jacket"

First retactable roof....... In the NFL, that is. (Reliant)

Largest screen in the NFL (Reliant), circa 2002

Closest seats to the playing field (Reliant), circa 2002

First (actually second, only to the Astrodome) with a natural surface in a dome stadium), circa 1965, circa 2002

Toyota Center with the largest screen in the NBA.

And finally now, we'll have the biggest screens (again, for the second time)... Suck it Jerrah!!!

OK, time to bring back up something that I thought of a few years ago. That was to recreate or animate some of the old Astrodome scoreboard features like the bull and shooting cowboy and have it play on the new scoreboard every once in awhile as a tribute to Houston sports history. This could easily be animated and played on the new scoreboard.
