Video Board at Bud Walton Arena
« on: May 07, 2015, 02:36:22 pm »

I think it's time to improve the video screen at Bud Walton Arena. I got an email questionnaire from the University on my visit to the Aggie game. They asked for suggestions of improvement and I said improvement of the video screen for fans in the second deck would be better. I thought when I Sat up there that the video board was still something that would have been New in the late 90s but not in 2015. What's you guys thought?

I have complained about it not only on HV but to people at the UofA/RF and it hasn't helped. The video board is very outdated and cheap looking. Needs to be upgraded in a bad bad way.

Also, with the addition of the Practice Facility, and the plans to get more concerts and events in BWA, a video board like this would help in attracting artists and also adding to the environment.

1. The sound system is awful. I still have no idea what Corliss or Nolan said when their banners went up. It was like I was trying to listen through a door.

2. I don't know how many of you saw the NBA All-Star Game competition festivities, but they had some amazing court lighting effects and graphics. It looked as if the court had vault doors that opened and closed, etc. I wish we could do something like that, but I'm sure that system cost a pretty penny.

Yeah, that's those new 3D graphic projectors. They are sweet, but I'm sure they are $$$$$$$$$$$$$

We will be getting a new video board soon, Jeff Long asked on twitter a few months back, that everyone give their opinion on their favorite board.

Jeff Long says it is happening:

When was the last time the Video Board at Bud Walton was updated?  Wonder how much they intend to spend?    I figure in the $3-5 million dollar range?
I agree it is much needed.  Be great for replays and showing fans in the audience.  Fans love to be seen and entertained during those long time outs.
