Next three Super Bowls to be played under Eaton's Ephesus sports lighting system

Minneapolis, Atlanta and Miami games will all be illuminated by Ephesus LED technology

 

Eaton has announced that its advanced Ephesus sports lighting LED and controls system will illuminate the next three professional football championship games, scheduled for 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota; 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia; and 2020 in Miami, Florida. Featuring its patented system technology, including industry-leading dynamic control functions, the LED system enhances the viewing experience for spectators in the stadium and at home, offering greater control and capabilities for the elaborate half-time shows – all while reducing energy use by as much as 75%.

In 2015, Seattle and New England played for the championship under the Ephesus LED Lighting solution at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona – the first professional football venue to install LED lighting. The solution gave fans the best view of the game while the system’s proprietary controls allowed for the complete darkening of the stadium, enhancing and extending the spectacular half-time show.

“It’s no coincidence that our LED lighting solution was chosen by the venues that are continually being selected to host the biggest events in sports,” said Mike Lorenz, president of Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting business. “Our digital lighting solution creates one of the best stages for performers and the optimal viewing experience for fans at the game and watching on high-definition television.”

Eaton’s Ephesus sports lighting provides optimal lighting that illuminates more uniformly on the playing surface and provides an improved stage for players and fans. The system is easy to install, maintenance-free for years and offers lower total operating costs compared with other traditional sports lighting systems.

Eaton’s Ephesus solutions continue to lead the rapid acceptance of LED lighting at sports and entertainment venues. Hundreds of facilities have made the switch to Ephesus LED sports lighting systems – including University of Phoenix Stadium (Arizona Cardinals); Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Dolphins); US Bank Stadium (Minnesota Vikings); Bridgestone Arena (Nashville Predators); Globe Life Park in Arlington (Texas Rangers); and the first NASCAR track with LED lighting – the Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.

Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting business manufactures high-output solid-state lighting solutions for challenging applications in indoor and outdoor sports and recreational markets. The business is focused on innovating advanced lighting solutions that will enrich and illuminate the world, by creating brighter, more vibrant and sustainable environments.
