M&T Bank Stadium is 185 ft. high, which is 35 ft. above Oriole Park.
The 2 RavensVision video screens, located in each end zone, generate 16 million colors and at peak output consume up to 80,000 watts of electricity.
M&T Bank Stadium has featured other events: the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship (2010, 2011), The U2 Concert (2011), The Men's Lacrosse Face-Off Classic (2010,2011,2012) Monster Jam, The World Cup Soccer Tournament (2012) and will host the 2013 World Cup Soccer Tournament as well as the Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake concert this summer (2013).

Each new RavensVision high definition screen measures 24 feet high and 100 feet wide. Those dimensions would equal a 1,234-inch diagonal TV screen. It would take 600 37-inch flat screen TVs to equal one of these giant LED (light emitting diode) boards. Nearly 2.5 million individual LEDs provide the image on the two screens, allowing the highest quality pictures in the brightest sunlight and at night events.
The high definition views allows for some of the best graphics and game action video in the league, live game highlights from around the NFL, instant replays, scores, statistics, plus player updates and features.
Each of the two giant screens is made up of modular LED panels - 12.6 inches by 15.1 inches. These panels were then assembled into larger sections measuring 8 by 9 feet. Each section weighs 900 pounds, and there are 33 sections on each board.
A new control room that can allow the high def boards to work at peak quality was designed by VPC and installed at M&T Bank Stadium by Diversified Systems, the U.S. industry leader in the construction and installation of control rooms.
The Ravens and the Maryland Stadium Authority shared the costs of the new boards.
Also new in 2010 are the more than 500 Sony flat screen, high definition televisions, which were installed throughout M&T Bank Stadium to enhance the fan's game day experience.
Providing even more information to fans are LED boards (800 linear feet) surrounding the field.
