The Texas Rangers are building a new ballpark in Arlington, Texas, and Daktronics will be a major part of the project. Globe Life Field will open in 2020 with nine LED displays, a 1,400 LCD IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) system, and Daktronics Show Control System featuring Live Clips and Camino technology.

What does that mean? Rangers fans and event goers are in for an incredible visual experience every time they enter the ballpark. Imaging 18,350 square feet of LED video displays catering to your video and replay expectations. That’s 8.8 million LEDs!

All of the new displays will be HDR capable to bring better image quality to the content shown. These displays feature SMD LEDs at 15-millimeter line spacings while the stadium will also feature displays with 6-, 3.9- and 2.5-millimeter line spacings. The 2.5-millimeter display is part of Daktronics’ Narrow Pixel Pitch product line for up-close viewing applications. It will serve as a press conference backdrop for the Rangers.

Whenever fans look to the outfield, they will see more than 13,000 square feet of displays with more than 5.2 million pixels. For reference, that would equal 1,220 60-inch televisions. Or, you could watch from home with ONE television. Advantage: Rangers ballpark.

“The new home of the Texas Rangers, Globe Life Field, will have the most comfortable seat in baseball, and with this new technology from Daktronics, that seat just got better,” said Texas Rangers Executive Vice President, Ballpark Entertainment Chuck Morgan. 

Fans won’t just receive a better experience from the action in the main seating bowl. They will also be catered to in the concourses and suites by the 1,400 LCD screens throughout the stadium. These displays will bring branding, live video, data, statistics and more to people while they are away from their seats.

Morgan added, “The Daktronics Show Control System, coupled with Live Clips and Camino, gives the Texas Rangers a complete control system and powerful platforms to create a game presentation for Rangers fans that will be second to none in all of baseball. We are looking forward to bringing this game changer in the industry to our fans and enhancing their experience at Globe Life Field."

With this easy-to-use, broadcast-ready control solution, the Rangers have all the capabilities at their finger tips to provide fans with an experience they crave, much like they see on their televisions at home. But instead, they can receive this experience inside a stadium packed with fellow Rangers fans.

There’s nothing like the atmosphere of a live event, and Daktronics is enhancing that atmosphere and experience at the new Globe Life Field for the Texas Rangers and their fans.
