TD GARDEN DEBUTS NEW ‘HUB VISION’
(BOSTON, MA) – TD Garden, New England’s premier sports and entertainment arena and home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics, announced today that the massive overhaul to the in-arena entertainment system is complete, and a new 4K center-hung scoreboard and audio system is ready to debut for the 2021-22 season. The pristine Daktronics scoreboard, aptly dubbed ‘Hub Vision’ for its prime location as the centerpiece to TD Garden and epicenter of the The Hub on Causeway, provides more than 4K resolution and 2.5-millimeter pixel spacing, currently the highest resolution in NBA and NHL.
The four main display screens have nearly doubled in size and measure 18 feet by 32.5 feet wide and have new accompanying underbelly boards measuring 6.5 feet high by 23 feet wide to cater to fans sitting closer to the action. Above the 4K video boards, two new ring displays each measure 3.5 feet high 179 feet in circumference and feature 3.9-millimeter pixel spacing.
“We are so excited to kick off the season and deliver the clearest and most captivating in-game presentation on the all-new ‘Hub Vision’ scoreboard,” said Amy Latimer, president of TD Garden. “TD Garden is in a constant state of innovation to improve our guest experience, and Delaware North continues to prove their commitment to the guest experience with these investments. The scoreboard is the centerpiece of the arena, and this upgrade will bring an unparalleled, technologically-advanced in-game experience for all our guests to enjoy.”
“We started this transition back in 2019, so to see this new center-hung finally completed, as originally intended, is just extra special,” said Daktronics Sales Representative Charley Bocklet. “It’s an honor for Daktronics to continue our relationship with TD Garden, which now will showcase some of the highest resolution screens in sports today. Their staff has always been great to work with and never more so than through this last year. Patience and perseverance will finally pay off for the fans of Boston.”
In addition to the new scoreboard, TD Garden has partnered with Clair Global Integration to update the audio system, utilizing Cohesion Series CO10 loudspeakers to deliver incredibly powerful, smooth, and precise audio to every seat in the house.
The new scoreboard and audio system are extensions of TD Garden’s Legendary Transformation, a $100 million private investment by the Jacobs family that began in 2017. The multi-year renovation provided a combined 50,000 square feet of additional space on all levels, preparing for the next generation of sports and entertainment experiences.
