Major League Soccer (MLS) club Austin FC has selected Austin-based stadium lighting specialists Sportsbeams Lighting to install state-of-the-art Chromabeams LED 900 fixtures within the Club’s new stadium that is under construction.
Andy Loughnane, President, Austin FC said: “The illumination within Austin FC’s venue will represent the most advanced stadium lighting system available in the world, and our tech-forward lighting package is supplied by an Austin-based specialist in sports lighting. The Sportsbeams system will provide superior illumination for players, performers, and all stadium guests.”
Austin FC’s stadium will be illuminated unlike any other soccer stadium worldwide, as each of the 396 lighting fixtures in the venue will be capable of instantly adjusting from a traditional white light to a range of two million RGB colour options across the colour spectrum. Sportsbeams Chromabeams are armed with patented technology that is unprecedented in the sports lighting industry worldwide. Housed in full aluminium die-cast body and single-optic tempered glass lens, these are one of the only lights that do not have any plastic in the light path or its housing.
Additionally, Chromabeams LED 900 lights also have three levels of active and passive cooling and can deliver up to 85,000 lumens per fixture with intelligent power supply management and controls.
Chromabeams are the new standard for sports lighting in major venues, allowing the addition of double the number of LEDs in a regular unit while delivering the least glare of any sports lighting fixtures available.
Russ Schroader, V.P. of Sales and Marketing, Sportsbeam, said: “The sporting world has never seen lighting like this. Athletes will love the lack of glare and unbelievable visual acuity, while fans will enjoy an awe-inspiring show that will elevate live performances and events.”
