Philips Lighting installs its first LED stadium lighting system in Turkey at Sinan Erdem Arena

New system illuminates the 16,500-seat arena with the latest floodlight technology, reducing energy consumption by 40%

 

A global leader in lighting and operating in Turkey for 87 years, Philips Lighting has installed the first Philips ArenaVision LED pitch lighting system in Turkey at the Sinan Erdem Arena in Istanbul. Energy efficient pitch and stand lighting was installed at the sports arena ahead of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four on May 19-21. The pitch lighting meets the latest International Basketball Federation (FIBA) standards for TV broadcasting and can be used to enhance the fan experience through dazzling light and music shows.

The new Philips ArenaVision LED lighting is ideal for the fast rhythm of basketball, enhancing the comfort of the athletes and the experience for basketball fans in the 16,500-capacity arena and for those watching the game on television. The lighting meets the stringent requirements of television broadcasters that require high quality lighting for UHDTV and flicker-free super slow motion replays.

The lighting of the basketball court was achieved using 92 Philips ArenaVision LED floodlights with a further 96 Philips SportsStar LED floodlights illuminating the stands. Compared to conventional lighting, the new lighting system reduces energy consumption for lighting by 40%, saving on electricity costs. The Philips ArenaVision system can also be used to create spectacular light shows synchronized with sound and other entertainment fixtures to enhance the fan experience.

Saner Kırık, sales director of Philips Lighting Project Channel for Turkey, said, “Sinan Erdem Arena will host international sports competitions and other types of events. We take pride in helping to transform the arena with cutting-edge technology to create an amazing fan experience that meets the latest broadcast and sports federation standards.

“Our dynamic sports lighting elevates the Sinan Erdem Arena to one of Europe’s top sporting venues and it gives us immense pleasure to support the transformative and unifying power of sport. We look forward to sharing the thrill of basketball with fans at the venue and watching at home.”
