    WOW! Just WOW!

    If I had stayed on a different career path it would now be my job to run those displays... ANC Sports is who I worked for when I made the banners on the scorers tables at Conseco rotate through the machines... So soooo low tech back then compared to what they utilize today! Best job ever!

    I don't see how you can say that Simon cares more about Indy than Irsay. Yeah Irsay got a gravy deal, but so has Simon. What has Irsay done to show that he doesn't care about the fans or community? Irsay is always willing to put as much money into the team as possible. Our salaries over the past decade have been insane. Irsay also gives a lot to charity.
    I thought we established that Simon actually paid back some of the loans for BLF, 80 million of 130. So that's about 50 million dollars from taxpayers, plus 30 from CIB deal. I'm no fan of sports teams owners as you know from other threads maybe, but 80 million dollars from taxpayers is a great deal when BLF has been open for over a decade.

    Lucas cost taxpayers 650 million plus 20 million a year, so in a decade Lucas has cost taxpayers a billion dollars. That's a huge difference.

    Then when you add the fact the Irsay is making tens of millions off NCAA tourneys and concerts, it doesn't compare.

    Lets not exaggerate or anything, because clearly those are the only acts that use BLF. And obviously these new upgrades aren't going to attract any additional performers.

    He seizing the opportunity of a down year for the Colts in order to attract fans to the Fieldhouse. In addition, this reclaims the Fieldhouse's right to the claim: best professional stadium.

    Here is a photo gallery of the other scoreboards in the NBA with brief descriptions...

    Outside of what they do with Madison Sq. Garden, I think it is safe to say that we won't see a better scoreboard in an arena for a long time. Looks like we waited until most of the league finished upgrading or replacing their scoreboards so we could put up something better!

    wow...the rest of the league doesn't even stand a chance. Even the 'best' scoreboards according to that look so puny now...

    uggghh, seriously can't wait to see this in action

    I was thinking the same thing, what are they going to do with that screen if they move to Las vegas?


    And also, aren't "small market teams" supposed to have "small market screens"? ..........

    Star yesterday...

    The Indiana Pacers’ $16 million investment in a sound system and gargantuan new scoreboards at Bankers Life Fieldhouse could signal the team’s commitment to Indianapolis for the long haul.
    Morris says Simon’s eye is on the teams’ overall lease, which expires in 2019. The owner is committed to keeping the teams in Indianapolis well beyond then.

    “For eternity,” Morris said during the news conference.

    “Herb lives and dies with the Pacers, and he wouldn’t want it anywhere else,” Morris said later.

    When you consider that the Thunder have one of the most advanced screens in the NBA and there's cost $3.9 million dollars, and this screen is costing $16 million that really puts it in perspective.

    It looks like a copycat of the massive scoreboard at Cowboys Stadium. I hope it doesn't look too big.

    Also this quote is from that article about the OLD scoreboard Indiana Pacers, Conseco Fieldhouse
    Pacers fans get to view the game like few others can. Ballparks.com says the stadium is one of two equipped with state-of-the-art 4 digital Mitsubishi screen scoreboard. Conseco Fieldhouse also has 82 stereo amplifiers in the seating area.

    I thought it was 16.x million in total for the screen, sound, and new TVs?

    I have not seen it broken down specifically. I just know that almost every source I've read (about a dozens) words it something like "$16 million dollar upgrades to audio and visual systems." So I assumed that is the total cost for the new scoreboard, the new sound system and all the other screen upgrades.

    For example: "The Indiana Pacers will open the National Basketball Association regular season at Bankers Life Fieldhouse with a new $16 million audio and video system, team officials announced Thursday afternoon."

    I think even 10k people at one time is a large overestimation. That would be over half the people there using it at once. There may be spikes of that many people (jumping on twitter after some huge play or something), but on average, I would say it would be much lower..
    I didn't say it could be fixed cheaply, but, yes, easily (for a large organization). There is plenty of bandwidth in downtown Indy within blocks of BLF. I imagine $10,000/month or so would cover the additional bandwidth, which really shouldn't be all that much for the Pacers organization, especially with the additional customer satisfaction (and therefore additional revenue) that it could bring. I wasn't the only comment on it here wanting it to be better, so there obviously IS a demand...
    10k a month is a lot of money to begin with but wont buy you that kind of connections, at least not in this world yet.
    only on peak ussage, lol, you seem to forget that every smart phone entering the wifi will seek contact, register and from then on runs his background apps through the wifi, 10k users was a low estimate.

    I would estimate the cost for the pipe alone to be around 100k a month and that is without the infrastructure, unless you think you can run those kind of pipes on a dsl modem.

    it would have to be brought in on fibre, (dark preferably) with at least one failover line. meaning that investment in hw alone would be close to a million add to that to 1 million plus a year for the pipe to exist, to do exactly what ? allow you to twitter during a game?? I think you lost me there.

    So player X makes to much, we should throw the money towards making sure the fans can twitter during the game, didn;t you come there to watch the game? what on earth makes you think anyone is THAT interested what you have to say DURING the game?

    sorry but it is frivolous to say the least

    Apparently the new sound system is already in, but it's incomplete. There will be more speakers once the scoreboard goes in. But supposedly it's already noticeably better. But I'd like to hear from more people, too.
