The downtown Las Vegas "Viva Vision" canopy, billed as the largest single video screen in the world, will be undergoing a $32 million renovation.

Fremont Street Experience announced Monday the renovations would start in February next year for the video canopy, which spans five city blocks.

The upgrades will make the screen seven-times brighter with four-times the resolution, according to the press release.

There will also be new digital content and interactive elements, including the incorporation of an app that would let visitors write personal messages and vote for songs or video.

The renovation is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 31, 2019.

"The redevelopment of the iconic Viva Vision canopy is a major milestone for Fremont Street Experience and the City of Las Vegas,” Patrick Hughes, president and CEO of Fremont Street Experience, said in the announcement.

The renovations will be made in partnership with the city of Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Conventions and Visitors Authority.
