Texas Rangers take control with Daktronics

As the MLB’s Texas Rangers continue to build Globe Life Field, Daktronics has been chosen to provide a complete audio-visual control solution throughout the ballpark.

This includes the company’s robust Show Control System featuring new Live Clips and Camino technology.

Also, all of the new LED displays will be HDR capable to bring the very best contrast and image quality to Rangers fans.

Texas Rangers executive vice president, ballpark entertainment Chuck Morgan said:

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.

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.

Daktronics Show Control System brings control software, video processing, data integration and playback hardware into a powerful, but easy-to-use production solution to entertain fans and generate revenue.

Live Clips, a dual channel multimedia broadcast server designed for live production, plays both clips and graphics. Built on a broadcast hardware platform, it delivers reliable clip playback and attention-grabbing graphics using layers, effects and transitions.

Camino, along with its real-time render engine, brings another level of control to the Rangers production room by allowing for real-time, non-linear, 2D and 3D template editing and server playout. This makes real-time rendering of data-driven graphics a reality for in-game productions at Globe Life Field.

The new Globe Life Field, which is being built as a public-private partnership between the City of Arlington and the Rangers, will not only be the team’s new home but also a multipurpose sports and entertainment venue that will include capabilities for hosting high school, college and international sports as well as entertainment tours.

Globe Life Field, designed by HKS, is expected to open in March 2020 in time for the Rangers’ season. Seating capacity is expected to be approximately 43,000.
