Crazy big news in Utah Jazz land. The org is going to upgrade the Energy Solutions Arena (formerly the Delta Center, built in 1991), and the price tag is going to come in at around $15 million dollars, or one Al Jefferson non-All-Star season. The upgrades will be on the audio, and video outputs. The new jumbotron screen is 7x bigger than current one, and it is in 16:9 ratio, 84 ft long. More info as I get it.

Great job LHM Group of companies. Keep it up : )
Here's a comparison of the current jumbotron with the new proposed one.

Jody has this to add:
Jeff Young said the 10 million pixels in the new video scoreboard will refresh 200 times faster than household TVs.— Jody Genessy (@DJJazzyJody) June 17, 2013
Here you can see the size diff between the sideline facing screens (bigger ones) and the baseline facing screens (less long ones).
