After installation of its state-of-the-art LED technology as the new field-of-play lighting system at the stadium, Musco has added a new life to the Aviva Stadium of Dublin, Ireland. The newly-installed system includes 52 colour-changing, red-green-blue-white (RGBW) LED fixtures strategically located throughout the stadium’s bowl to illuminate the roof structure. Additionally, bracketing and cabling for two dozen spotlight mounting locations were installed, which will allow for temporary, moving spotlights to be added on an as-needed basis.
Elaborating on their plan, Martin Murphy, Aviva Stadium Director, said, “Advances in technology are helping venues to merge sport and entertainment. At Aviva Stadium, we want to accentuate the drama of our events. Our new lighting effects will enable us to build a sense of anticipation before games by adding to the pageantry. The external visual impact is spectacular and draws attention to the stadium, reminding everyone in town that a big event is taking place.”
As with the field-of-play lighting, the new entertainment lighting was installed by McSherry Electrical and the lighting controls were designed and integrated by StadiumFX. The system is capable of delivering an exciting range of colour-changing special effects scenes and light shows.
