NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
The Tennessee Titans on Wednesday updated offseason renovations at LP Field including two new high-definition LED video screens.
At approximately four times the size of the current screens, the new video screens will be among the NFL's largest and provide a sharper, clearer picture.
High-definition ribbon board video screens will accent the east and west sides of the stadium, providing information and sponsor graphics on game days.
A new sound system with an additional 800 speakers is also being adding. The system will eliminate sound delays and deliver a clearer, more evenly distributed sound to fans.
Two banks of high speed elevators, each with six cars, will also be installed to serve upper deck ticket holders.
Storage areas presently not accessible to fans will be converted into fan-friendly dining and entertainment zones.
"I think the players, the entire organization is excited, the city is excited to see how it is all going to come together and with the work that is being done today it is so refreshing to know it is really coming down the pike," Titans Executive Vice President Don MacLachlan said.
He added, "This is now reality instead of something we are just talking about in theory. This will be an entire new presentation on game day that we are excited about unveiling for our fans starting in the preseason in August."
One indoor storage room, for example, will become a club-type restaurant open on game days that will also serve as a reception room for up to 500 people for private functions on non-event days.
The upgrades will be completed in time for the start of the 2012 season and are expected to cost $26.8 million.
