Rockets largest indoor scoreboard in U.S.
You know what they say, Everything is bigger in Texas. The Houston Rockets new scoreboard is the largest indoor center-hung scoreboard in the United States. It’s massive and a great thing for people in the nose bleeds. Maybe the Rockets organization just wanted nobody to miss the Linsanity?
Here’s the Rockets statement on the new mega screen,
“The new scoreboard will be manufactured and installed by Panasonic and will feature the largest combined viewing area of any indoor center-hung scoreboard currently used in the U.S. The scoreboard will contain four large screens — two rectangular-shaped displays that will face the east and west seating areas and a pair of square-shaped screens that will face the north and south ends of the bowl. The larger boards will measure approximately 25 [feet] high by 58 [feet] wide. The two end panels will measure approximately 25 [feet] high by 25 [feet] wide. All the boards will display a full HD signal with 1080 lines of resolution.”
