Wimbledon unveiled state-of-the-art LED Lighting System at Centre Court for the Championships 2017
Players, spectators, and fans from around the world watching the action on Wimbledon’s Centre Court enjoyed an enhanced experience for The Championships this year, following the recent installation of a state-of-the-art LED lighting system.
The LED system was installed by U.S.-based Musco Lighting—which worked in close partnership with ME Engineering—and features the company’s Total Light Control–TLC for LED system-based technology. The installation of the new lighting was the culmination of more than two years of extensive research, planning, and testing to ensure the solution was custom engineered precisely to the needs at Centre Court.
The project team conducted testing at Wimbledon, bringing in professional tennis players to review the lights at Centre Court and offer input for final adjustments. Installation was completed in November 2016.
The TLC for LED system—which was installed on Centre Court’s retractable roof and will be used when the roof is closed—features patented light control technology, delivers a more uniform light, and virtually eliminates glare from impacting players and spectators. The system’s LED fixtures, structural, and electrical components were engineered to work together to ensure long-term reliability.
