Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers are currently in the middle of building its brand-new Globe Life Field ballpark in Arlington, where it will feature nine LED video displays and a fully-integrated IPTV system.
The 43,000-seater stadium, which is set to open in March 2020, will feature more than 18,000ft2 of display space in total with the largest located over right field measuring 58ft x 150ft.
This will be joined by a display in left field measuring 40ft high by 111ft wide, and combined will provide fans with 5.2 million pixels for high-resolution images. it would take 1,220 60in televisions to cover both displays.
Designed and installed by Daktronics, the company will continue a long relationship with the Texas Rangers to provide nine LED displays and approximately 1,400 LCDs for an IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) system at the team’s new Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Eight new SMD (Surface-Mount Device) LED displays, a centerfield 15HD display and all LCDs will be fully integrated using Daktronics Show Control System.
“This system will feature a main video display that is beyond HD resolution using the latest SMD technology that is increasingly becoming standard in these large displays,” said Daktronics president and CEO Reece Kurtenbach. “Another eight displays in the bowl and an IPTV network of displays throughout the stadium creates a comprehensive solution of displays around the stadium to deliver an immersive experience for the fans. These technologies, powered by an innovative broadcast-quality control system and service expertise, will take the new home of the Texas Rangers to another level of game-day experience.”
