Miami's Dolphin Stadium, home to the 2007 Super Bowl in early February, has added eight Panasonic 103-inch, 1080p plasma displays to its upscale Club Level accommodations as part of the facility's major renovation and expansion.
Panasonic's TH-103PF9UK models are being placed at strategic locations throughout the stadium for on-site viewing. Super Bowl XLI will be held Feb. 4, 2007, in the facility outside Miami, which has been expanded by 360,000 square feet in recent months.
A Dolphins official said the NFL franchise had considered both plasma and LCD monitors, but they couldn't get the size options they wanted with LCD. The Club Level of the stadium includes 240 executive suites for businesses, sponsors, season ticket holders and visiting team owners.
The 103-inch displays are installed in the main lounge and bar areas throughout the section, according to a team statement, and connected by fiber optic cable. The plasma displays are programmed from their own HD control room on the Club Level.
