Sioux Provides Derby Coverage to In-Track Big Screen

big-boardSioux is back at the Kentucky Derby this week prepping for the race by supplying coverage of all events to the in-track big screen.

Churchill Downs has teamed with Panasonic in a $12 million project to install a 15,224-square-foot, high-definition (HD) LED video board in time for the 2015 Longines Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands.

The video board will be installed about midway along the backstretch and outside the dirt course of the historic track. This position maximizes the 170-degree viewing angle for fans in the 55,638 clubhouse and grandstand seats, and the tens of thousands of fans in the track’s famous 26-acre infield.

The bottom edge of the 171-foot wide video board will be 80 feet above the ground and will top out at 170 feet in height, making it the largest high definition video board currently constructed anywhere in the world. The video board and supporting steel structure will weigh over 1,000,000 pounds and must be capable of withstanding winds of up to 85 miles per hour.
