Colorado Rockies to upgrade last incandescent lamp matrix to LEDs

Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies baseball team, will upgrade its remaining incandescent lamp matrix display with one of the largest full-color LED displays in Major League Baseball. The new Daktronics display will take the place of the existing Daktronics incandescent display, located below the primary Daktronics ProStar video display, and will measure approximately 33ft x 72ft.

The new display primarily will present lineups, statistics, and other game-in-progress information, but its 216 by 480 pixel resolution will allow graphics, animation and video. Though approximately the same size as the 10-year-old monochrome incandescent display it is replacing, the Rockies expect the LED technology to reduce energy consumption and offer greater reliability.

Prior to the 2004 season, the Rockies upgraded the stadium’s display system with a new ProStar primary video display, two fascia-mounted ProAd digital displays and a third ProAd display in front of the "Rockpile" in center field. Daktronics provided the original scoring system when Coors Field opened in 1995.
