    The article seemed to imply that the current setup would be replaced by the TV. I'm thinking less advertising space and more screen. Love this idea! Thank you, Texans!!

    Now... to await the upcoming season ticket holder bill...

    Well, we all knew the prices were going up next year again anyways, so at least we get a pretty cool video board. And I hope you're right & they get rid of the ads and make it fit the whole area. I haven't missed a home game since 2003 and I can't tell you the names of any of those advertisers.

    I'm certain Coca cola is one. Maybe HEB?

    My only concern with this is... they remove the closed captioning feature because of size. They have captioning for the games but it's poorly placed and is within that billboard. Despite that, I appreciated it. They are not legally obligated to caption them.

    I can tell you that I look to the captioning many times also, Nitro. Especially when the refs are talking and the crowd is loud. It is a valuable resource that affects many people, on both sides of the hearing spectrum.

    When I was in Detroit, they did not offer closed captioning in the stadium, and the crowd was so rambunctious that we had no idea what the refs said on the non-TD. We didn't find out until after the game.

    You know what? Anybody can respond. I'm curious... how can we let the Texans know to encourage them to keep the captioning? I would like to write them a letter. I'm excited about the big screen but I am increasingly concerned that it will push the captioning off the board.

    I saw that image a few months ago here on TT, so I'm guessing its just a fan image. Hopefully they dont get rid of the captioning, I don't think they will. Aspect ratio on that screen is pretty ridiculous. I figure they'll keep it at 16:9.

    Yeah... since it won't be completed until next August, that's got to be a fan's rendition.

    I'd go ahead and write your letter Nitro.
    Can't hurt.
    Maybe send a note to T.C.'s blog, put the Chronic to good use.
    And if you start some sort of petition to send Uncle Bob's way, I'll sign it.

    52 feet tall and 277 feet wide.............a wingspan greater than a BOEING 747!


    Now poor Jerruh is going to have to tear down his new stadium, replace his video board with a bigger one........and then build a newer bigger stadium around it.:vincepalm:

    That is most definitely not 16:9

    The video (replays and such) should still be 16:9 just PIP'd in over a base layer. The cameras will still capture and output 16:9 for TV format and if they stretched it would probably look very strange.

    That's an odd size. At 52.5 feet tall a 16:9 screen would be 93.3 feet wide.
