Kyle Field - Stadium Features - 12th Man TV

12th Man TV

During the 2006 offseason, the older Jumbotron was removed and replaced by a 3,954-square-foot (367.3 m2) Mitsubishi Diamond Vision enhanced resolution LED videoboard, at the time the second largest in college athletics and one of the ten largest in the world. The Texas A&M Athletic Department has dubbed the new screen "12th Man TV," although some fans refer to it as the "Gigatron". The 110-foot (34 m) tall structure contains 590,000 pixels on 154 video panels with a screen size of 74 ft (23 m) by 54 ft (16 m). The athletic department also updated the media equipment to allow production and broadcast of enhanced definition video to the screen. This addition to Kyle Field was accompanied by LED ribbon boards were installed along the facade of the second deck encircling the stadium. At 1,130 feet (340 m), it is the longest ribbon board in collegiate sports and second worldwide only to Sun Life Stadium in Miami. In conjunction with this project, additional upgrades included video board upgrades to Reed Arena and Olsen Field.
