The 96- by 27-foot LED displays spanning each end zone are the lowest in the NFL and give every fan an unobstructed view. However, the 60 tons of air-conditioning equipment needed to cool each display produce enough mechanical vibrations to make nearby luxury suites shake like giant paint agitators. Spring isolators divert the excess energy into concrete pylons and steel beams. Throughout the stadium are 991 other TVs, 285 of which are plasma screens. The display system is controlled by a 1,700-square-foot,
$2.2 million production suite.
