Texas Rangers To Upgrade Rangers Ballpark With Daktronics Video Displays And Integrated Digital Media Network

BROOKINGS, S.D., Dec. 6, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq:DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., announced today that the company has been chosen to provide a high-definition upgrade for the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The project, subject to final contract execution, will incorporate large-screen light emitting diode (LED) displays, professional grade LCD screens and a powerful control system to deliver high-definition digital content throughout the venue.

"Our fans will be treated to a new entertainment experience with these video, technology and audio upgrades," said Rangers Managing Partner and CEO Chuck Greenberg. "We are pleased to be working with Daktronics in bringing the newest integrated display system technology and the highest quality video to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington."

The Home Run Porch, behind right field, will feature a new video display measuring approximately 42 feet high by 120 feet wide. A new video display will also replace the existing monochrome "Coke" display in centerfield and will measure approximately 25 feet high by 28 feet wide.

Both the Home Run Porch and Coke displays will utilize Daktronics newest 15 millimeter LED technology, featuring enhanced resolution and improved image quality. This technology and its control system allow for complete flexibility in programming. The video boards can operate as single large displays or be divided into multiple zones (windows) to show a wide variety of statistics, information, graphics, animation, and live and recorded video.

The new Daktronics LED video displays, and the existing ribbon and field-level displays that were installed in 2009, will be combined with more than 800 Sony ® professional-grade LCD monitors to create a venue-wide digital media network. The Daktronics system will be an internet protocol television (IPTV) solution that delivers different live content on 10 high-def channels to any display in the venue.

The Rangers will take advantage of Daktronics industry-leading data integration capabilities to instantly present up-to-the-minute scores, statistics, news and information on any IPTV channel.
