WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Purdue University is preparing to begin construction for a new $10 million video board in Ross Ade stadium. Renderings of the video board were released this week.

The state of the art project is four times larger than the board that debuted in 2007. The new board can window into multiple screens to provide a variety of game-related information. Purdue University believes it will enhance the fan experience.

Spokesperson for Purdue Athletics, Tom Schott says, “This one is gigantic and certainly technology has improved so much. The picture will be clearer the colors will be richer and it’s just another step in enhancing the game day experience for our fans”.

The Daktonics board will be the first HDR video board in college football. F.A. Wilhelm Construction will begin demolition on the current board after the last home football game. Construction of the new board is expected to be completed by August. The project is being funded by donors.
