Featuring its industry-leading control functions, the LED lighting
system gives facility operators unsurpassed control to enhance the
viewing experience for spectators in the stadium and at home and to
produce lavish pre-game and halftime shows. Additionally, its patented
color temperature tuning capabilities allow it to accommodate the
lighting needs of a wide range of events with just the push of a button.
"Our industry leading LED sports lighting solution has been chosen by
prominent sports venues that are continually being selected to host the
biggest events in sports," said Mike Lorenz, president, Eaton's Ephesus
Lighting business. "Our digital lighting solution creates one of the
best stages for performers and the optimal viewing experience for fans
at the game and those watching on high-definition television."
In addition to lighting the courts at the three stadiums hosting the
semi-final and championship games, the Ephesus sports lighting solution
is also installed at three arenas hosting first and second round games
this season including KeyBank Center (Buffalo, NewYork), Bridgestone
Arena (Nashville, Tennessee) and the BOK Center (Tulsa, Oklahoma).
Continuing the trend, next year's men's regional rounds at the new
Little Caesar's Arena (Detroit, Michigan) and Bridgestone Arena will
also be played under Ephesus LED sports lighting. Additionally, Rupp
Arena (Lexington, Kentucky) and Webster Bank Arena (Bridgeport,
Connecticut), two of the sites hosting women's first and second round
games this year, also employ an Ephesus LED sports lighting system.
The Ephesus LED lighting solution has been especially well-received by
college basketball programs as its proprietary technology allows it to
feather the light gradually from the ends of the court to the stands.
This technology helps create consistent depth perception for the players
no matter the size of the venue, whether it be an intimate college
basketball arena or large stadium.
Eaton's Ephesus sports lighting helps provide optimal lighting
that illuminates more uniformly on the playing surface and provides an
improved stage for players and fans. The system is easy to install,
requires little to no maintenance for years and offers lower total
operating costs compared to other traditional sports lighting
systems. These benefits have led to numerous college basketball arenas
installing Eaton's Ephesus sports lighting solution including: Exatech
Arena (University of Florida), Watsco Center (University of Miami), LJVM
Memorial Coliseum (Wake Forest), Bartow Arena (University
Alabama-Birmingham), Ryan Center (University of Rhode Island), Mackey
Arena (Purdue University (News - Alert)), Freedom Hall (East Tennessee State
University) and more.
Eaton's Ephesus solutions continue to lead the rapid acceptance of LED
lighting at sports and entertainment venues. Hundreds of facilities have
made the switch to Ephesus LED sports lighting systems including more
than 25 professional sports venues in all major sports, including: Hard
Rock Stadium (Miami Dolphins); Globe Life Park in Arlington (Texas
Rangers); and the first NASCAR track with LED lighting - the historic
Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.
