Comments[edit]

Someone should include a resolution of the Jumbotron. The new washington nationals stadium in DC uses a 4500 sq ft screen. Is that the biggest in the world?

Tron vs. tron[edit]

The Sony site uses a capital T: JumboTron. See, for example, http://www.sony.net/Fun/SH/1-36/h2.html (image caption). Candy 18:35, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Sony in LED Display business?[edit]

Does Sony still make Jumbotron displays?--BigMac1212 17:44, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Broken Link[edit]

This link, http://catalog2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ModelDetail?storeId=11201&catalogId=13051&modelNo=ASTROVISION, leads to an error page at Panasonic. 4.243.227.135 07:00, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Serious clean up[edit]

There are references in-text, and at one point the page says "6 sided octagonal JumboTron" - absurd! I'm going to clean this thing up as best I can, because it really needs it. Cheeser1 22:49, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Clean up: yeah. please Cheeser1 go for it. would note 3 different spellings (perhaps using redirect). JumboTron, Jumbotrone and Jumbotron. also, just found a simply written description here maybe of some use to you. http://bigbeefandbeer.com/jumbotronFAQ.htm Bine maya 10:41, 17 May 2007 (UTC) okay — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.11.63.140 (talk) 20:43, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Offensive Picture[edit]

I think the picture of hte ABC video display shouldbe removed because it is offensive to christians, particularly Catholics, because of hte wording on it. people are unable to see the context or complete sentence —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.95.138.245 (talk) 12:42, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

stop your whining. shut your piehole. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.54.142.25 (talk) 18:28, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Censorship is not a part of Wikipedia. 75.110.137.47 (talk) 06:09, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

It is an ironically hilarious photo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.194.135.24 (talk) 17:56, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

I agree on Wikipedia's censorship policy but I also agree that the image could be changed to something more neutral. As much as it is good for Wikipedia to not censor info, it would also be good to try not to offend people where it is not needed. Ex. On the Jumbotron article. People should try to make Wikipedia more of an inviting place for all users. Frogger48 (talk) 20:24, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

Advertizing[edit]

Please do not add back the advertising for Imago products. Wikipedia is not a place for advertising. Bongomatic 11:27, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

CRT or VFD?[edit]

The design section states to begin with that a Jumbotron is a very large VFD, later that it consists of small CRTs. As this, to my knowledge, is two different technologies a bit clearance on the design would be appreciated

Fixed. You are correct, VFD and CRT technologies are different. 71.119.73.233 (talk) 05:20, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

CRT Sub-Pixels[edit]

I know they're rather rare in collecting circles, but does anyone happen to have one (or a set of three) of the early CRT sub-pixels that they can upload a photo of? 71.119.73.233 (talk) 05:24, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

JumboTronJumbotron – Article is about the class of television rather than the defunct trademarked brand by Sony. Common usage is the non-trademarked form. Google it! Marcus Qwertyus 10:12, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. Skimming through the sources, Jumbotron without the camel case does seem to be more commonly used as a name. JumbleTron with the camel case has been used generically in a few sources, like this ESPN article, but it occurs far less frequently.--SGCM (talk) 03:54, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
