It may not be the biggest change to take hold at the Georgia Dome over the past three years, but the new scoreboards that make their football debut Saturday night are certainly the most noticeable addition.
The high-definition boards are three-times the size of the previous offerings and offer a number of new abilities to the game entertainment team.
“It was like watching a replay on your telephone in the past,” Falcons vice president of marketing Jim Smith said. “Now when you go to this format, you can show a replay. Fans will really like seeing the replays. One of the things we really heard — or that the NFL has heard — is that fans feel you can get a better viewing experience at home. Some of that’s due to the replay. Now we’re going to show replay better than what you can see at home.”
I know I’m looking forward to catching some replays in HD.
