A SMARTER STA­DIUM

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Fans watch­ing Mt Smart Sta­dium night-time sport­ing events will see the field brighter than ever be­fore from Fri­day with the fi­nal in­stal­la­tion of the Philips Are­naV­i­sion LED flood­light­ing sys­tem. Auck­land Sta­di­ums di­rec­tor Paul Nis­bet said the LED flood­lights would be ama­jor im­prove­ment for play­ers, spec­ta­tors and TV broad­cast­ers. ‘‘The play­ers will be able to see more clearly, the fans will be able to view a bet­ter prod­uct and the tele­vi­sion broad­cast will have a sharper pic­ture,’’ Nis­bet said.

‘‘One of the best ad­van­tages is the long life of the sys­tem com­pared to the rel­a­tively short life of the older metal halide lamps - given the dif­fi­culty of ac­cess to the light­ing, this will greatly re­duce main­te­nance costs go­ing for­ward,’’ he said. The LED flood­lights in­stal­la­tion fol­lows the ad­di­tion of a new 212 square-me­tre screen, the largest per­ma­nent sta­dium screen in New Zealand.
