Stadium lighting How to choose efficient stadium lights

With the increasing development of sports in recent years, more and more participants and people watching the game, the requirements for stadium lighting are becoming higher and higher.

Television transmission has long played an important role in influencing the evolution of lighting. From professional sports leagues to college games, equipped with advanced LED motion lighting, these clips can now be played flicker-free at 20,000 frames per second.

Sports fans can capture every second of the replay in detail, or they can learn more directly about every movement of the athlete by playing it slowly.

Advances in lighting technology have also made the operating cost of leds more attractive than ever, more affordable than traditional lighting such as metal halide lamps, and venues that install leds can save more than 75% of the cost.
Stadium lighting design, designers must first understand and master the requirements of stadium lighting: illuminance standards and lighting quality. Then it is necessary to determine the lighting scheme according to the possible installation height and position of the stadium building structure.

Common stadium lighting methods are as follows:

(1) Top lighting method

The top lighting method should choose symmetrical light distribution lamps, suitable for the main use of low space, high requirements for the level of the ground illuminance uniformity, and no television transmission requirements of the stadium. Generally used for basketball, handball, table tennis, gymnastics, hockey, ice sports, judo, wrestling, martial arts and other small and medium-sized gymnasiums.

(2) Group uniform lighting mode

Group uniform lighting means that several single lamps form a group and are evenly arranged over the sports field, which is generally used in small and medium-sized gymnasiums such as basketball, handball, table tennis, gymnastics, hockey, ice sports, judo, wrestling, martial arts and large gymnasiums with relatively high height.

(3) Side lighting mode

The lateral lighting mode should choose asymmetric light distribution lamps arranged on the horse track, which is suitable for sports events with high vertical illumination requirements, often requiring athletes to look up and observe, and sports stadiums with TV transmission requirements. This method is generally used for most indoor sports such as badminton, tennis, swimming, as well as venues with high vertical illumination requirements, and is suitable for venues with TV broadcasts.

(4) Mixed lighting mode

The hybrid lighting method is a kind of lighting method that combines the above two or more lighting methods, which is suitable for all indoor projects. Through different combinations of lighting control modes, it can meet the requirements of large stadiums and color TV stadiums with higher vertical illumination requirements, and has a good three-dimensional sense of illumination.

A good stadium lighting should have anti-glare treatment, no glare is not dazzling; Create a comfortable light environment; High color reducibility; No strobe, instant lighting, long service life, soft light, high uniformity, energy saving effect is obvious.
LED as a new light source, and the traditional gold halide lamp is very different. These differences will bring about revolutionary changes in the operation and management of stadium lighting, and truly intelligent control can be achieved.

(1) Change of management style.

(2) The expansion of control space.

(3) The realization of instantaneous start function.

(4) The realization of special stage effects.

(5) The difference between direct and indirect control.

(6) Different illumination modes are implemented in different ways.

(7) Large-scale application of online diagnosis and remote control.

Like other lighting, stadium lighting has also experienced a tortuous process from germination, development and change, from traditional incandescent lamps, halogen tungsten lamps, to today’s energy-saving and environmentally friendly LED sports lighting.

Whether it is for China’s sports industry or sports lighting industry is a once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity, can get a share of it, it depends on whether sports lighting practitioners can follow the trend of development, in the fierce competition to stand out
