Signify has installed LED lighting solutions in Japan’s Kobe Misaki stadium. Moreover, the leading lighting company had also installed new lighting solutions at Aichi’s Toyota stadium in April.
Both these stadiums are used for rugby tournaments and, the world’s biggest rugby tournament will take place from September 20 to November 2 in these two in Japan.
Signify installed Philips ArenaVision LEDs with its Interact Sports connected lighting system for creating light shows and allowing for the programming of multiple light scenes to adjust lighting standards to the different sports that are played in the stadium.
The new LED lighting system in the 30,132 seat stadium was commissioned via an innovative method using robotic measurement and includes video aiming and laser scan.
The multiple light scenes in the Interact Sports system can be played back to meet different lighting standards that are required by rugby as well as footfall associations.
Around 404 Philips ArenaVision LEDs were used in the stadium, which is expected to save up to 45% in electricity costs. The installation was done by Signify’s robotic measurement method, laser scanning and a video aiming system.
The use of this system significantly decreased the time of installation as well as improved accuracy and quality of the task. Toyota stadium and Kobe stadium are the first two outdoor stadiums in Japan using robotics to install the connected lighting system, Interact Sports, in combination with high performance Philips ArenaVision LEDs.
