In 2014, Major League Baseball formally voted to expand the use of instant replay using an off-site location. Once approved, the replay command center needed to be operational by opening day, which gave the project team only twelve weeks from start to finish. Along with the standard project process, the team also had to continually address the evolving design criteria from the MLB owners, technicians, umpires, and players’ union all while under construction.


Completed within the tight schedule, the final product is integrally wired to all 30 MLB stadiums nationwide. The Instant Replay Suite is made up of a multi seat main control consul and six dedicated umpire viewing stations. There are 32 frameless high-res video monitors that yield up to 288 discrete image projections. Each of the six viewing stations features an umpire and video technician reviewing all game feeds simultaneously.
