    Rockets MASSIVE new scoreboard

    The new scoreboard will be manufactured and installed by Panasonic and will feature the largest combined viewing area of any indoor center-hung scoreboard currently used in the U.S. The scoreboard will contain four large screens two rectangular-shaped displays that will face the east and west seating areas and a pair of square-shaped screens that will face the north and south ends of the bowl. The larger boards will measure approximately 25 [feet] high by 58 [feet] wide. The two end panels will measure approximately 25 [feet] high by 25 [feet] wide. All the boards will display a full HD signal with 1080 lines of resolution.

    Does anyone know if similar upgrades will be made to the N.O. Arena as part of the capital improvement projects that were part of the Hornets long term deal?

    I think by next season we will have all new arena improvements, new fan store, and importantly a re-brand. It takes time for teams to upgrade after being bought. Also by next season we will have a much better team with a significant rookie and loads of cap space. Next season will be more excting IMO to this season.

    I see us saving that cap, but starting next season we may see minor improvements like the multi color seats turn all solid colors. I hope we get a screen like that tho!

    It kinda looks like the setup that the Cowboys have, but obviously on a smaller scale. Something similar would be great in the arena!

    I don't know the specifics but remember that Houston is a much larger market and the Toyota Center also is home to the Houston Aeros of the AHL (basically the AAA level of hockey) as well as the fact that Houston attracts a greater number of concerts, shows, etc. It will also assist in Houston's effort to attract an NHL franchise someday.
    Improvements to the New Orleans arena and the Superdome generally involve seating areas, concourses, things of that nature that help to attract one-time events like the Superbowl and NBA All-Star game.
