Earlier this week, MDS pointed out that the Patriots will be showing the NFL Red Zone on their new HD video screens.
The Ravens are now following suit.
The new 24-by-100-foot HD boards at M&T Bank Stadium will display the live feeds and highlights from other games during Ravens games. “This goes to giving our fans the same thing they can get at home,” Ravens president Dick Cass said.
The Maryland Stadium Authority and the Ravens shared the costs of the new HD screens.
“Our continued investment at M&T Bank Stadium is to enhance our fans’ game-day experience and to attract more non-Ravens events,” Cass added. “We work to create an environment that is more compelling than a fan’s staying at home and watching our games on television. RavensVision will be a significant part of our presentation. We’re excited for our fans and others to see these dramatic video boards.”
More than 500 flat-screen HD televisions also will be installed throughout the facility.
It’s all part of the league’s effort to compete with the millions of man caves throughout the country. As the private viewing experience improves, the NFL needs to ensure that folks will still prefer to attend games in person.
