This project required massive amounts of wiring, conduits, controls, cooling equipment and ... an extremely narrow time frame. For these reasons and more, the NECA-IBEW team was the first choice.

By now, the news is all over the Web. As part of a $63 million dollar renovation of Everbank Field, the Jacksonville Jaguars have put up the world's largest scoreboard. Essentially a wide-screen television on steroids, the scoreboards measure a whopping 60 feet high and 366 feet in length – wider than the football field itself.
The unveiling took place last summer during an event that featured fireworks, full-screen videos and a concert by pop singer Carrie Underwood.
The unsung heroes – without whose skills and contributions the new, mammoth scoreboard would not exist – are the contractors, engineers and workers of the NECA-IBEW team. The contributions of NECA contractor Miller Electric and IBEW Local 177 are highlighted in the latest video documentary from ElectricTV.net.
The scoreboards are made up of 30,000 modules and contain 35 million light-emitting diodes (LEDs), giving these massive big-screen televisions razor-sharp resolution. As one might imagine, this project required massive amounts of wiring, conduits, controls, cooling equipment and more – and the entire project had an extremely narrow time frame. For these reasons and more, the NECA-IBEW team was the first choice for taking the project from design to final construction.
The new ETV video gives viewers a unique insider's look on just what it takes to create what may well become one of the wonders of the modern world. The video is available at ElectricTV.net and the ETV YouTube channel.
ABOUT ELECTRIC TV: ElectricTV.net is an ongoing project of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
