Vivek Randive, Sacremento Kings owner and chairman, says the installation of the center-hung board will revolutionise how fans consume the game, providing an unmatched viewing experience.

The four-screen display will include two sideline screens  that are more than five-times larger than the screens currently in use.

The screens use the latest in LED technology, totalling more than 32 million piexels across the four screens, providing fans with crystal clear views of immediate replays vai 4K ultra HD.

At more than 84 feet in length, the baord will extend nearly baseline to baseline – longer than the average length of an 18-wheeler truck. The ribbon featured at the top of the board will be six foot, three inches, with the main screens more than 44 foot wide and more than 24 foot tool.

Jim Doyle, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company president, says there are ‘endless’ possibilities to help enhance the experience throughout the arena.
