Are you tired of the old box TVs at Tiger Stadium, Alex Box, and inside the PMAC?

Well, then good news because they are being replaced by hundreds of high-definition televisions, according to this release from LSU.

For Immediate Release - November 29, 2017


BATON ROUGE – The newest and most innovative distributed television system, featuring hundreds of high-definition televisions, will soon be making its way to LSU’s athletic venues.

The Maravich Center will be the first facility to see the new televisions as the units are scheduled to be installed and activated for fans to enjoy by mid-December. The HD TVs will also be in place at Alex Box Stadium in time for LSU’s season-opener against Notre Dame in February. The final phase of the installation will take place in Tiger Stadium during the offseason and will be ready for next year’s home opener against Southeastern Louisiana.

“It’s a great upgrade for our fans,” said Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva. “We know they want it and they deserve it. We are especially pleased to invest in a system that is this state-of-the-art and will allow us a lot of flexibility for years to come.”

The $4 million upgrade will allow LSU to feed custom content and event footage to hundreds of high-definition televisions located throughout these three venues. LSU spent most of 2017 removing old wiring and installing the necessary technology infrastructure throughout Tiger Stadium, the Maravich Center and Alex Box Stadium to support the new system.

“Tiger Stadium wasn’t exactly wired for this,” said Emmett David, Associate Athletics Director for Facility & Project Development. “It’s a massive upgrade and requires a lot of technological and infrastructure improvements to be performed. Once fully installed, our fans will enjoy a crystal-clear picture, stats, college football updates and much more.”

The new system will be run by live event broadcast personnel in a central control room located in the LSU Athletic Administration Building. David said the HD television sets will be installed at concession stands and concourse areas throughout the three venues as well as in all premium seating areas.

can they figure out how to flip the screen from the other side of the PMAC. I sit in 204 and when you watching the game on the court, they are going left to right....well, when you look up at the screen, they are going the opposite.

Maybe less TVs and they could work on bathrooms

Give Joe Alleva a cookie for updating TVs that should’ve been updated 15 years ago.

What's even more obvious is your stupidity in thinking new wiring and labor is free

New wiring and labor obviously cost $3.5 million.

“The $4 million upgrade will allow LSU to feed custom content“. Of course we all know what this really means. Multi-ads in 4K-ultra HD clarity... thanks.
