    And a USB connection. I've got some films and a couple of seasons of House MD on a portable hard drive.

    No but they do have high quality smaller digital scoreboards in each corner of the ground which relay any VAR outcomes.

    This would be mandatory in the Premiership.

    I'm decidedly pro Ron Gordon and his investment plans and I'm sure his vision for the club and ER on match days is keeping in line with the fact that we're a Scottish football club of some 145 years standing not an entertainment franchise born the day before yesterday.

    From "kiss cams" onwards in the quoted post would be far too far down the "americanisation" route for my liking
    Wonder what happened to the guy at ER whoís girlfriend proposed to him - the announcer asked on her behalf but Kenny or Rab / whoever failed to respond so we never got to see how that panned out (badly probably)

    Will you be able to see the screen from the Skyview Restaurant at Tiny or will the Castle be in the way?

    what benefit does a big screen bring ?

    I go to watch the game in person.

    The big screen is not to watch the game. Iíve seen so many people say this. The big screen is there for revenue generation through advertising, to promote Hibs and Hibs products to the thousands that are in attendance at games, and to appeal to the younger generation that they might get shown on the big screen at the game thus deepening their connection with the club. Itís a money maker pure and simple.

    Sponsors and commercial partners like them.

    And young people.

    All consistent with driving up attendance and revenue, as per the plan.

    Just imagine its a wet Tuesday, we're 3 nil down at half time to Hamilton and you want to go home but realise you can wath rhe 2nd part of Corrie on the big screen to cheer you up. Meanwhile on the pitch Doiger hits a double hatrick and you missed all the goals because Sally and Gail were having a barney...

    Plus, if Christiano Ronaldo ever plays at Easter Road, he'll be able to check to see if the cameras are focused on his best side.

    Same probably applies to Kamberi.

    It helps to remind you that youíre at the game, when you see yourself on it you can jump up and down and tell folk next to you that youíre on the screen.

    If the screen is not showing replays of contentious decisions from the current match or action replays of goals just scored then it is utterly pointless. All other things people have suggested it could show are all available on your handheld smart phone. Advertising you say. If it brings money in that will make it pay for itself then fair enough. Otherwise it offers no real justifiable value.
    And Ron being the successful businessman that he is has no doubt reached the same conclusion. No justifiable value but - what the heck - Iíll give them a big screen anyway.

    If you look at the picture I posted in post#34, the big V on the right hand side is an advert for something called Volume. I still have no idea what they were selling but that image will have brought in a few thousand quid to the club.

    The main picture shows the score between 'Ryan's Royals' and Blackburn. Ryan was a terminally ill youngster whose short life was made much happier though the club's engagement with him - a very worthy cause IMO and I'm sure he was absolutely thrilled to see that image.

    Both sections change throughout the match with ads on the right and a delayed stream of the match on the left interspersed with birthday messages, some more ads and replays of major incidents. If something happens on the field that I didn't quite see or understand (increasingly likely at my age) I automatically look at the screen to see if a second viewing helps.

    In short the screen brings in a lot of money for the club and enhances my matchday experience, it's just a shame that the fitba' on show isn't doing either right now (look at the 'crowd').

    All in favour of the big screen but in the winter /spring the sun often shines right into the East. Hope it doesn't spoil the image.

    The modern big screens can handle sun directly on it. I watched a few games of the last World Cup on one and it was pretty amazing in the sun.

    Great. I would have hated to have the screen without being able to see it!
