Colorado Rockies incorporates logo into new Daktronics display at Coors Field

US baseball team the Colorado Rockies has partnered with Daktronics for the design, manufacture and installation of a new LED display system at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. The installation, due to take place this fall, will be the fourth largest in baseball and the new system will be 258% larger than the existing display. The customized installation will also feature a unique rock-shaped formation along the top edge of the display inspired by the Rockies’ logo.

“We are always looking for ways to ensure the fan experience at Coors Field continues to be one of the best in all of sports,” says Rockies executive vice president/chief operating officer Greg Feasel. “Among the other facility improvements this off-season, we feel the new scoreboard is a critical enhancement for our 25th anniversary season. Daktronics has been a great partner in the design and advanced technology, and we’re excited to present it to Rockies fans on opening day, 2018.”

The new main outfield video display will measure approximately 59ft high by 116.5ft wide, and will feature a 13HD pixel layout. The display, complete with rock-shaped formation, will feature more than 6.8 million LEDs for a total of 8,369ft2.

The new video display will be capable of variable content zoning – showing one large image or multiple different zones of content including live video, instant replays, statistics, graphics and sponsorship messages. The display includes improved ventilation to reduce overall power usage and improved structural support on account of the increased display size.

“We’re excited to continue our long-standing relationship with the Colorado Rockies and Coors Field with these display upgrades,” says Daktronics president and CEO Reece Kurtenbach. “There’s a large amount of engineering involved to create these large video systems, including the support structure to withstand the outdoor elements. Our team is always ready for these types of challenges as we continue to enhance the fan experience for our customers.”

In addition, Daktronics will also be replacing the existing Rock Pile ribbon display in center field. The upgrade will measure nearly 5ft high by 60ft wide. Four LED ribbon displays will also be installed along the seating fascia, each measuring 3.5ft high, adding a total of 1,150ft of length around the stadium. These displays will all feature 15HD pixel layouts to provide supplemental information and graphics to the main display as well as providing an opportunity to highlight sponsors.

This installation is an upgrade to products Daktronics installed in 2005 and an addition to auxiliary and ribbon displays installed in 2011, 2012 and 2014.
