Philips Lighting installs its first LED stadium lighting system in Turkey for Sinan Erdem Dome
A global leader in sports lighting, Philips Lighting (Euronext Amsterdam ticker: LIGHT), has installed the first Philips ArenaVision LED pitch lighting system in Turkey – where it has been operating for the last 87 years – at the Sinan Erdem Dome, which recently completed a whole series of technological additions.
Sinan Erdem Arena will host international sports competitions and other types of events. We take pride in helping to transform the arena with cutting-edge technology to create an amazing fan experience that meets the latest broadcast and sports federation standards. Our dynamic sports lighting elevates the Sinan Erdem Arena to one of Europe’s top sporting venues and it gives us immense pleasure to support the transformative and unifying power of sport. We look forward to sharing the thrill of basketball with fans at the venue and watching at home.
Sinan Erdem Dome revealed its full range of new technology additions during last weekend’s EuroLeague Grand Finale
Sinan Erdem Dome, the largest indoor multi-purpose arena in Turkey, officially introduced not only its new Philips Lighting ArenaVision LED system last weekend but also its newly installed cutting-edge technology by Colosseo during the biggest basketball event in Europe – the Turkish Airlines Euroleague “Final Four”.
Visitors enjoyed the spectacular visual feast of LED displays provided by Colosseo, including the LED ribbon boards. The Company invented the double-sided LED ring surrounding the HD centre-hung video board with only 6mm line spacing for an extra sharp picture, while its size and shape was precisely designed to perfectly fit the needs of basketball games.
All displays, content creation and distribution was under the control of the industry-leading Colosseo Single Media Platform (Colosseo SMP), providing a high-end game presentation show including spectacular re-plays/highlights, eye catching animations and infotainment, while seamlessly managing the whole advertisement playlist on selected LED displays.
In addition, Colosseo installed timekeeping, scoring and a statistical system to inform visitors about all important game statistics in real-time like score, time, fouls, penalties and individual players statistics. FIBA-certified basketball accessories like transparent double-sided shot clocks and possession arrow indicators with hardware controllers were also part of the Company’s delivery.
