The Houston Rockets are going to be spending $15 million in upgrades this year as they get ready for the All-Star Game in Houston. One of the major upgrades will be their large jumbo-tron.
On Tuesday, the Rockets announced that, “The new video board will be the largest indoor center-hung scoreboard in the United States, offering patrons an unprecedented view of the action at Houston Rockets home games and Toyota Center events such as the upcoming 2013 NBA All-Star Game. The new board is the centerpiece of a sweeping arena-wide improvement project that was announced today and also includes the installation of new HD flat panel screens throughout the concourses, upgraded Wi-Fi connectivity options, new concessions point-of-sale systems and other upgrades for Toyota Center patrons.”
The Dallas Cowboys will still own the largest outdoor jumbo-tron, but the Rockets will now own the largest indoor one; an upgrade that may appear in a lot of other arenas in the near future in order to enhance the live game experience.
