How ‘Jumbotron’ video boards keep getting bigger

Stadium video boards have evolved from the Astrodome's giant screen (unveiled in 1965), Capital Centre's Telscreen (1973), and Dodger Stadium's Diamond Vision (1980) to the stunning versions of today. EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla., is the latest to join the fray, with plans to debut two monstrous screens this fall that are each 55 feet high and 301 feet wide.

EverBank Field has two screens; TD Garden has four screens.
