New "Jumbi" Coming to the Forum

Say goodbye to the old Jumbo-Tron at the Forum. The Bolts are getting a new state-of-the art system installed as we speak.


“We are pleased to introduce HiTech as our partner in the design and development of the new video board system for the St. Pete Times Forum”, said Campbell in making the announcement. “We were impressed by HiTech’s focus on innovation, technology and its cutting edge approach. This has been an exciting project, joining forces with another Tampa Bay company to deliver a unique video board that will set us apart from all others in professional sports.”

The new LED (light emitting diode) video board system will include a fully digital, full-color main board hanging over center ice and a 360 degree full-color ribbon board circling the fascia of the arena’s lower level. Additionally, amber scoreboards will be installed on the upper level fascia behind each goal. More detail on the new system will be available next week along with full-color static and video renderings of the main video board.

This should mean the end of blurry, hard to see video in the arena! The new system should be on-line by the home opener on October 4th.

I think it's blurry because of the shaky camera work.
