During the offseason, a second round of renovations was started at Capital One Arena. The main focus of these “Phase II” upgrades were enhancements to the video displays in and around the arena, as well as further concession upgrades and a facelift for the 200 level.
While many of the upgrades, such as the full scope of the LED “sky ring” boards, aren’t quite ready to go just yet, fans attending tonight’s first preseason game against Chicago will get a first look at the brand spanking new jumbotron.
Take a gander at this absolute unit.

The remaining upgrades will ready by the Capitals’ regular season home opener on October 5.
The Caps aren’t the only team whose arena is getting some shiny new toys this season. Metro Division rival Philadelphia has also revealed its new jumbotron, which is being hailed as “the world’s first 4K kinetic scoreboard.”
