The Ducks are getting a new scoreboard


It won’t be quite as big as the behemoths in Tampa or Denver, but the Anaheim Ducks are still pretty excited about the new scoreboard that will be hanging in the Honda Center next season.

From the club:

The new scoreboard screens will measure nearly 20-feet-tall and over 30-feet-wide, and feature a display area more than four times the square footage of what the arena currently operates. The six millimeter diode equipped hardware will feature 912 by 1440 lines of resolution, the clearest and highest definition picture available in any North American venue.

Here’s what the current scoreboard looks like:

Hence, the upgrade.

“We could not be more pleased to make this announcement knowing this upgrade will take the Anaheim Ducks live game experience to a new level,” said arena and club executive Tim Ryan.

“With a much larger video display area and superior HD quality video and sound, this upgrade certainly falls right in line with our ownership’s commitment to keeping Honda Center among the most technologically advanced arenas in the world.”

PS — With the Islanders moving to Brooklyn and Edmonton and Detroit building new downtown rinks, the Honda Center will soon be the NHL’s fourth-oldest building, after only MSG (which recently underwent a massive renovation), the Saddledome (which the Flames are hoping to replace), and SAP Center in San Jose (which only opened like three months before the Honda Center in 1993).

PPS — The Honda Center should get a big picture of the queen.
