Athletic Director Stan Wilcox made the announcement, saying the screens have been approved and should be ready for the Sept. 10 home opener against Charleston Southern.

FSU opens the season five days earlier (Labor Day) against Mississippi in Orlando.

The entire structure in the stadium’s north end will be over 78.4-feet tall and almost 120-feet wide. The system is three-times larger and more than two-times higher than the old system. It will boast a true high-definition image (1080p) which represents more than a 250 percent increase in overall resolution.

The new 35-foot high by 74-foot south end zone board will also include a true high-definition image (660p), 300 percent larger and a 250 percent improvement over the previous board. The new LED screens represent some of the largest and highest resolution screen systems in any college football stadium.

Additionally, FSU will upgrade, replace and expand more than 320 linear feet of LED ribbon boards throughout the newly constructed canopy and south end zone.

“We are pleased to be taking another step in making the football game day experience for our fans, season ticket holders, student body and student-athletes the best that it can be,” Wilcox said . “While our former video boards were state-of-the-art when installed, the image quality of the new boards will be second to none.

“The addition of these new boards, along with the new Champions Club, the new sound system, and other planned improvements, will make the Doak Campbell experience as exciting as it has ever been.”

Florida State donated its old south end zone scoreboard to FAMU.
