Manhattan Kansas State is replacing the video boards and sound system inside Bramlage Coliseum as part of nearly $2.4 million in upgrades to the school's basketball arena.
The focus of the project is a center-hung video board that will have a display four times larger than the current board. There also will be six LED displays around the arena to provide additional crowd engagement and sponsorship opportunities.
New sound equipment includes nearly 100 total loudspeakers and 200,000 watts of amplification.
The current video boards and sound system were installed in 2000. Funding for the upgrades will come from general athletic department revenue rather than tax, tuition or university dollars.
