LED Stadium Lighting makes mark on NFL
For the first time ever, the NFL and the Superbowl will be played under LED Stadium lighting.
The University of Phoenix Stadium, in Glendale, Arizona replaced all their old Metal Halide stadium lights (which were 8 years old) with SSL (solid state lighting) LED Stadium lights. This will be the first time LED Stadium lighting has been put on such a grand scale and will be the greatest test for the new technology.
The CREE based lights give 2 times the lumen levels (and 75% energy savings) on the field which should make for extraordinary HDTV slow motion replay capability. The spectator experience, both in the stadium and on TV, will be enhanced and will give credibility to the technology of LED Stadium Lights.
Future Sustainability is currently preparing for the first LED stadium lighting retrofit in Queensland.
