Toshiba enhances StubHub Center fan experience with new displays

The Toshiba America Business Solutions division of consumer electronics company Toshiba has fitted a new ultra-high-definition scoreboard and ribbon displays at StubHub Center, home of Major League Soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy and NFL American football franchise the Los Angeles Chargers.

The new displays will complement the north-end scoreboard installed at StubHub Center in 2014.

The new scoreboard measures 20ft by 53ft, delivering 476 by 1,232 lines of resolution during live-action play and replays. It will be located on the south end of the stadium, opposite the 5,100-square-foot LED scoreboard, which, at 36ft by 125ft, is said to be the largest in MLS.

The new ribbon displays will stand at almost four feet high, ringing the stadium and streaming team highlights, player statistics, other scores and sponsor advertisements.

“StubHub Center continues to be committed to enhancing our world-class fan experience in every aspect,” said StubHub Center general manager Katie Pandolfo. “We are excited to work with an industry leader like Toshiba to showcase the new HD screen and ribbon boards inside StubHub Center. We have invested heavily to upgrade our stadium and this latest scoreboard and ribbon displays take our commitment to the in-game experience even further.”

Bill Melo, Toshiba America Business Solutions’ chief marketing executive, added: “StubHub Center is the new home of the Los Angeles Chargers and long-standing arena of MLS’ most successful franchise, the LA Galaxy, it was important to provide something dramatic for the teams’ loyal followers. Together with AEG leadership, we have envisioned and implemented a world-class digital experience for fans to enjoy for many years to come.”

The Chargers moved to Los Angeles from San Diego earlier this year, and the team is playing at the 27,000-seat StubHub Center before it moves into a new state-of-the-art venue in Inglewood, which it will share with the LA Rams.

LA Galaxy has played at StubHub Center since it opened in 2003.
