MOSCOW, Idaho – University of Idaho football fans will be able to see replays on a new state-of-the-art video board when the Vandals take the field for their home opener against Northern Illinois on Sept. 14.
The new YESCO video board measures 30 feet by 50 feet and has the ability to produce 4.4 trillion colors with a 15 mm pixel display to provide the highest quality resolution.
“We are excited about the partnerships we have developed, which enabled us to provide this dynamic addition to our game day experience and atmosphere,” Director of Athletics Rob Spear said. “Not only will we be able to deliver the highest quality video of game action and replays, but our fans can join the fun with interactive promotions.”
The total cost of the video board is $787,321, all of which is being funded through private donations.
The new video board will be installed at the east end of the Kibbie Dome, while the existing video board will be relocated to the west end. Work begins in June and is expected to be finished by early August.
