Mercedes-Benz Stadium looks bright on TV, according to fans

Fans watching the Falcons preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals say the stadium looks bright and great on television. 

The Falcons new $1.5 billion stadium has a 360-degree, 58-feet tall HD video halo board, a state-of-the-art audio system, a large window that shows the city of Atlanta and a retractable roof, however the roof was closed during the opening of the stadium. 

Mercedes-Benz Stadium also uses an “open stadium approach,” which lights the stadium in a natural way. LED sports lighting in the stadium also helps the stadium look brighter even during evening games.
