Pittsburg State University’s video board is affectionately known as the “Jungletron.” With a display measuring approximately 2,800 square-feet, the LED screen was the largest in all of Division-II when it was first used during Pittsburg State’s 2008 season-opener against Missouri Southern State University.
It is one of the largest university-owned LED display in the state of Kansas.
Funding for the $1.7 million video board was provided by private donors. Look closely at the immense board and you’ll see 24 LED panels, along with space above the board for camera operators and the stadium sound system.
More than a simple video board, the Jungletron is also a classroom with students from Pittsburg State’s famed sports broadcasting class producing the game images and replays shown during the game.
The Jungletron has become a popular attraction for campus and community beyond GameDays.
Pittsburg State’s Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations and its Gorilla Activity Board regularly offer special “Movie Nights at the Jungletron.” Thousands of fans bring their blankets and chairs into the stadium to enjoy these free movies. In 2014, Pittsburg State offered baseball fans a treat by showing games 2 and 3 of the World Series which featured the Kansas City Royals first trip to the Fall Classic in 30 years.
The Jungletron offers fans a new level of excitement and engagement. It is another reason why Gorilla GameDays are among the most fan-friendly events in the nation.
