About Mini Jumbotrons
A mini jumbotron is a compact video wall that works well for small events. The comparatively small “mini” jumbotron screen allows individuals and businesses to advertise, livestream, and more in a convenient, portable way.
The mini jumbotron is a cost-effective solution, whether you’re looking to upgrade an outdoor business event or enjoy a game day gathering with your friends and colleagues.
A mini jumbotron is NOT a stadium screen like you see in the photo above.

What Exactly Is A Mini Jumbotron?
A mini jumbotron refers to two different things.
The first is a compact version of a traditional jumbotron. In this context, a mini jumbotron is a small, portable LED screen that offers versatile, high-resolution displays for advertising and entertainment. Think of any type of large display screen you see at a sporting event, only smaller.
The second type of mini jumbotron is a 4-sided TV setup for use at your home. Imagine four standard-size personal TVs, each mounted on one side of a scaled-down, jumbotron-like structure, replicating the huge overhead displays that you see at basketball games.
This setup allows each screen to either broadcast the same content or showcase different visuals, creating a 360-degree viewing experience perfect for a family game room.
How Big Is A Mini Jumbotron?
A mini jumbotron can refer to homemade TV models or various smaller-sized traditional jumbotron models.
With that said, a traditional mini jumbotron will likely have the following size range:
Width: Anywhere from 6 feet (1.8 meters) to 15 feet (4.5 meters).
Height: Anywhere from 3.5 feet (1 meter) to 8 feet (2.4 meters).
Note that actual product sizes from YAHAM will vary.
Mini Jumbotrons for Small Businesses
Mini jumbotrons designed for small businesses will likely be very small, comparatively speaking. Screens designed for larger venues will be larger but still considered “mini” compared to stadium-sized screens.
Mini Jumbotron Size Estimates
Want some additional mini jumbotron size estimates? See the following!
Note that these figures are generalized and do not reflect actual product specifications.
For specific figures and a custom mini jumbotron tailored to your needs, book a consultation with YAHAM, and we’ll discuss what options are available, price points, delivery times, and more.
Personal and Home Jumbotron Size Estimate
For a traditional-style mini jumbotron for personal use, the size would likely be:
Width: 5 – 10 feet (1.5 – 3 meters)
Height: 3 – 6 feet (0.9 – 1.8 meters)
A homemade TV-style mini jumbotron with four screens, meanwhile, would depend on the size of the TVs that are mounted and custom specifications.
Small Business and Retail Space Jumbotron Size Estimate
Width: 10 – 20 feet (3 – 6 meters)
Height: 6 – 10 feet (1.8 – 3 meters)
Bars and Restaurant Jumbotron Size Estimate
Width: 15 – 25 feet (4.5 – 7.6 meters)
Height: 8 – 15 feet (2.4 – 4.5 meters)
Small Outdoor Events Jumbotron Size Estimate
Width: 20 – 30 feet (6 – 9 meters)
Height: 10 – 20 feet (3 – 6 meters)
Indoor Events and Conferences Jumbotron Size Estimate
Width: 15 – 25 feet (4.5 – 7.6 meters)
Height: 8 – 15 feet (2.4 – 4.5 meters)
Community Centers and Sports Venues Jumbotron Size Estimate
Width: 20 – 40 feet (6 – 12 meters)
Height: 10 – 25 feet (3 – 7.6 meters)
Compare these sizes to the largest Sony Jumbotron ever made (located in SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario), which measures 110 feet wide by 33 feet tall, and you can see why they would be considered a “mini” jumbotron. Granted, some of the screen sizes shown would actually be quite large, so the term mini is relative here!
How Much Is A Mini Jumbotron to Buy?
The costs of mini jumbotrons vary, but here are some general estimates:
Homemade 4-TV replica models: $3,000 to $5,000.
Low-end traditional mini jumbotron: $5,000 to 15,000+.
Mid-range traditional mini jumbotron: $15,000 to $50,000+.
High-end traditional mini jumbotrons: $50,000 to $200,000+.
Again, there is a lot of variation in what a mini jumbotron will cost. For instance, a very small jumbotron, such as one used for a high school football field, may cost $30,000 to $50,000.
It’s not, however, unheard of for a high school jumbotron to cost anywhere from $200,000 to $750,000 to construct and install!
It all comes down to what screen size and capacities your business needs.
