Eaton’s Ephesus lighting wins at Bridgestone Arena

Ephesus sports lighting technology, from Eaton, transforms the modern day sports and entertainment experience. The LED technology and controls solutions produce dynamic scenes and visual effects, as well as zero to 100 percent dimming and color temperature tuning from 4800 to 5600 Kelvin (K) .

Ephesus sports lighting technology has already been put to use in Bridgestone Arena. Bridgestone Arena is home to the NHL’s Nashville Predators and also regularly holds regional and national basketball tournaments. 120 Ephesus Arena Pro 600 fixtures were installed to replace 247 metal halide lights. These unique fixtures provide color temperature tuning adjustments at the push of a button with no decrease in light on the surface. A “warmer” color temperature was programmed for basketball and a “cooler” one for hockey. Additional settings were created for events like concerts and maintenance. Prism color fixtures were installed to create unique fan experience effects while more Prisms were installed around the building’s exterior to provide colored uplighting. All of the Ephesus fixtures incorporated DMX controls to enable dynamic fan experience effects as well as increased operational flexibility.

“The combination of the improved lighting and fan entertainment elements coupled with the environmental benefits and lower operating costs made this solution an easy choice to add to our upgrades to the Bridgestone Arena,” said Tim Friedenberger, Vice President of Facilities Operations for Bridgestone Arena, “We are especially excited about showcasing the new system during NHL All-Star Weekend, when the eyes of the hockey world are upon Nashville.”

Bridgestone Arena became the first venue to implement a color-temperature tuning LED lighting solution. Energy costs were reduced by an estimated 85% while the number of fixtures was reduced by more than half. An average of 214 foot candles was generated on the playing surface. Operators state the ice is now more easily and uniformly maintained. Audiences at Bridgestone Arena or watching its events on HDTV will now have a clearer, brighter view of the action.
