MOLINE, Illinois — The iWireless Center added high definition to the arena and now it's ready for a big reveal. The new video board is the latest technology upgrade and just in time for hockey season.
The new video wall is about five times bigger than their old one, and includes an HD camera and new replay system. It cost the center about $600,000 and was installed in between events over the past month.
"The revenues that we make every year go into a pot and then we re-invest back into the building to try to make it better for our fans and every year we try to do new projects to keep the building state of the art, looking new," said Scott Mullen, executive director.
The Quad City Mallards will be the first to use the new big screen during their first game o f the season next Friday against the Fort Wayne Komets.
