The $260 million arena opened in 2005 as Charlotte Bobcats Arena before Time Warner Cable bought naming rights. The arena has the largest video screen of any indoor arena in the country (38 feet high by 36 feet wide), according to the arena website. A unique feature of the scoreboard is a cityscape, displaying the Charlotte skyline. The arena also has incorporated the theme, "A Celebration of Gathering," and encourages conversation along its open terraces, walkways and other public areas.
