New big screen coming to Fountain Square


A new big screen is coming to Fountain Square.

Fifth Third Bank and the 3CDC joined forces to purchase the board, replacing the original LED board that was installed in 2006.

According to the release, the new display will provide better viewing angles and crisper image quality on a screen similar to the size of the one currently being used in the space.

The difference will be that sponsor panels along the bottom of the current board will be replaced with more video screen space.

The video board will be used by 3CDC to broadcast event graphics and live feeds during events on the Square as well as to show Reds and Bengals games and promote other nonprofit events and productions around downtown. As part of its sponsorship agreement, Fifth Third will help create high-definition video content for the display.

The board will be supplied by local company LSI Industries.

Installation is set to begin on Monday, March 18, 2013 and is expected to take two weeks.
