If any of you who live nearby happen to walk by the stadium while the highlights are playing, do they have audio going too, or is it just video at this point?

It appears to be a video processing and scaling technology.  If I understand it correctly, it takes input signals of various formats and converts it to a desired output size/resolution (Testing this tech probably explains the incrementally growing video display mentioned in the above comments).  I believe CORIO2 also includes algorithms that try to "upscale" lower definition input to an HD output.

Seems like that screen is extremely bright (as it would need to be for daytime video).  Look at how washed out the webcam is (and it's not like this is a very sunny day)!

The 'M' still isn't there.

The two 'M' in 'MICHIGAN STADIUM' are block M's rather than the split M. When they were installing the back of the scoreboard it appeared that it was going to be a split M. I think someone noticed the inconsistency and now there's some emergency repainting going on somewhere.

It seems unlikely they made that big a mistake. See this earlier thread. What they started to put on the back of the north scoreboard looked like a block M, but it seemed like they had the middle piece in the wrong place. jmblue pointed out in that thread that the split M always includes an outline, and the M they were putting up certainly didn't have one.

Some sort of mistake may have been made, but I'm almost positive they weren't about to put up a split M, especially given that it has more or less been banned from use.

If you look at the placement of the back panels right now, they have/had all the pieces in that are entirely blue. The missing panels are all the pieces that would have the M on them. There is some reason that they are willing to patch it in later, rather than going in a logical order.

Also, the split M that was (or never was) didn't necessarily have to have a border or strikethrough. It was meant to be the basic block M, but painted in the split M style. I'm just saying that the order of panel installation isn't logical.
