Houston's Reliant Stadium Has Biggest Video Scoreboard

Updated: Wednesday, August 14 2013, 12:22 PM CDT

The crown of the biggest video display in a NFL stadium has passed from one Texas city to another.

The video display at the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium was the NFL's largest until Tuesday when Houston's Reliant Stadium took away the crown from Jerry Jones. In fact, it is the biggest video scoreboard in the world.

There’s a new view at Reliant Stadium that you won’t find anywhere else. Officials from the Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock and Rodeo unveiled two new state-of-the-art HD video scoreboards to the thrill of dozens of invited guests.

"Fans are demanding video board displays like this.  You see them in stadiums across the country. At this present time, this is the largest in a stadium environment in the world," James Rootes, Texans President, said.

And in this case, the word "large" could be an understatement.  The HD video scoreboard display is 14,549 square feet.  It is large enough to fit 320 JJ Watts on the screen.

"We're excited about utilizing this in the rodeo as well as the Texans game.  I think it will be something they'll be able to interact with and see lots of things we haven't been able to," GM of the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Joe Bruce Hancock said.

But one record-breaking video board just wasn't enough.  Reliant has two of them on opposite ends of the field.  This state-of the-art feature that did not come cheap.  It cost close to $16 million of taxpayer money.

"The Super Bowl alone will attract revenue far in excess of that.  We're talking about Final Fours.  We're talking about all the other events that will come to the stadium where you get the best fan experience," Harris County Judge Ed Emmett said.
