A&M officials say the LED video display will be 47 feet high and 163 feet wide, and be the first one in college athletics to have 1080 resolution.

The display, made by Daktronics, will be installed in the south end zone. Two smaller displays will also be installed, with one in each corner at the north end of the stadium. Those will be 36-by-54 feet.

The last portion of the video upgrade will be five ribbon displays placed around the seating areas of the stadium, ranging from 160 to 510 feet long.

Workers have installed 28 of the 40 LED modules - each measuring 54.5 feet by 9.5 feet - that will be placed in 10 rows of four that will serve as record HD display area that measures 218 feet (width) by 94.6 feet (height).
