The changes are expected to quadruple the canopy's resolution. A new feature will also allow visitors to use an app to write personalized messages that will appear on the canopy, as well as to vote for the next song or video to be played.

The upgraded canopy will be unveiled on New Year's Eve 2019.

Fremont Street Experience President and CEO Patrick Hughes says 23 million people visit the entertainment district every year.
