Packers plan to install better video, audio at Lambeau

Packer fans will get a better view of the game when they're at Lambeau next season. The team plans to install larger, high-definition video boards on the scoreboards above both end zones, at a cost of up to $14 million.

Packers' president Mark Murphy told the stadium board it will be a, "tremendously positive thing" for Lambeau Field and Packer fans. An improved sound system is also planned - and it's all expected to be ready in time for the Packers' annual Family Night next August.

The current video boards were installed as part of the stadium's renovation in 2003. The Packers say more than 20 other NFL teams have improved their screens in the last five years - and Lambeau's screens are now among the smallest in the league.

All major sports are using better video boards to improve the fan experience. But the screens are most vital in football, where replay reviews can literally decide a game. They also show live action to help fans see better when the plays are the furthest from their seats.
