COLLEGE STATION (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – One of the nation’s most rabid fan bases will now have the technology to back it up. Texas A&M says Kyle Field will have the largest video screen in college football for the 2014 season.

A&M officials say the LED video display will be 47 feet high and 163 feet wide, and be the first one in college athletics to have 1080 resolution.

The display, made by Daktronics, will be installed in the south end zone. Two smaller displays will also be installed, with one in each corner at the north end of the stadium. Those will be 36-by-54 feet.

“As part of the redevelopment of Kyle Field, it was paramount to find the best technology available to showcase Texas A&M’s unique in-game experience and traditions on game day,” says Director of Athletics Eric Hyman.

The last portion of the video upgrade will be five ribbon displays placed around the seating areas of the stadium, ranging from 160 to 510 feet long.

The stadium is also undergoing renovations that will increase Kyle Field’s capacity to 102,500 for the 2015 season.

Daktronics was previously used to install a new video board for the men’s basketball stadium — Blue Bell Park.
