Not to take away from Sunday’s big game, but the Philadelphia Eagles are claiming a victory of their own today.

Come next season, the team’s home field advantage at Lincoln Financial Field will be enhanced with the highest definition video display boards in the NFL. Panasonic Eco Solutions North America announced this morning it’s partnering with the Birds to provide “a comprehensive LED display solution throughout  the facility” – highlighted by two ultra wide screen, high resolution (10 mm pitch)  end zone boards that measure in at 27 feet tall and 192 feet wide at one end, 27 feet by 160 feet at the other.

Gonna be hard to miss a bad call with those big impressions.

Final phase of the Eagles two-year stadium revitalization plan to be completed in August, these latest fan experience upgrades also include the installation of four large marquee displays at street level outside the stadium, more really big screens in the Eagles Nest at the North End and Headhouse Plaza, plus advertising-carrying ribbon boards circling the stands for  more than 2,000 linear feet. Six new displays will be installed on the club level as well, plus over 1,200 new high definition Panasonic displays around the stadium.

For its good service, Panasonic will become one of the Philadelphia Eagles “Founding Partners” and  gain naming rights to the Panasonic Club, the 37,000 square foot space on the West side of stadum that serves about 3,900 club seat holders each game.
