Sacramento Kings Social Media Night At Golden 1 Center Powered By Panasonic USA

From Social Media night content, to Kiss Cam, to the Noise Meter, to promotions about upcoming games and shows, this giant video display was both easy on the eyes and so lifelike, viewers tend to watch the video board more than the live action.
