SYRACUSE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ephesus Lighting, the leader in high-output LED lighting in sports and entertainment venues, announced today that its newest product innovation, the Ephesus Arena Pro-Court, offers multi-purpose basketball venues a single lighting system capable of meeting the stringent and diverse lighting requirements of professional and major college basketball.
“There is a major distinction in the quality of lighting requirements for pro and college basketball venues. We now have a product that focuses on improving the player performance, increasing fan experience, and exceeding HDTV broadcasting requirements for both professional and college basketball,” said Joe Casper, CTO of Ephesus Lighting. “We engineered the Ephesus Arena Pro-Court specifically to provide a quality solution where adjusting the spectrum of light will significantly improve HDTV broadcasting quality and provide a solution for multi-purpose sporting venues.”
The Ephesus Arena Pro-Court light is the only LED sports lighting solution with full light spectrum and color temperature tuning capability. This patent-pending technology enables the system to adjust a specific spectrum of light for HDTV broadcasts and also adjust the color temperature of the light to meet a range of “warmer” lighting required by professional and college basketball. The innovation also allows venues to tune the light quality and at the same time maintain constant light levels on the playing surface. Previously, facilities needed to install multiple sets of lights to achieve similar results. The improved color rendering and tunable color spectrum were designed into this new product specifically to match the needs of HDTV broadcast cameras and provide an enhanced brilliance of colors matched only by the sun.
The new Ephesus Arena Pro-Court also provides more precise optical control allowing for the dramatic light cutoff between the court and the stands as per pro basketball lighting guidelines. Additionally the Arena Pro-Court light includes the same patented glare-free technology as the Ephesus Arena Sports Series.
The new system is fully HDTV compliant with zero flicker technology allowing up to 8K frames per second super slow-motion recording. Ephesus’ military-driven design technology results in ultra-low EMI, which eliminates interference with arena communications systems with increased bandwidth.
Ephesus Lighting luminaires have been operational for over 300,000 hours in more than 100 indoor and outdoor sports and entertainment venues including; the home fields of the Arizona Cardinals, the Ottawa Senators and Duke University.
