Arena Corinthians to install LED lights for World Cup

The Arena Corinthians in São Paulo, which will host the opening match of the Football World Championships in 2014, is preparing for the tournament by installing energy-efficient lighting technology from Osram. The highlight of the installation will see the external façade transformed into the world’s biggest LED stadium panel and will serve as an extra-large screen.

All components will be provided from one source – from the façade lighting to the internal lights and the floodlight system on the playing field. Through the installation of over 350 lights by subsidiary Siteco, in combination with metal-halide lamps from Osram, the Munich-based light manufacturer will exceed the highest standards newly defined by FIFA regarding the quality of light on the playing field.

The LED panel on the external façade of the arena will measure 170m long x 20m high and will be capable of displaying images, detailing scores and playing videos. Around 840 LED lights with a total of 34,000 LEDs from Osram subsidiary Traxon will make it the largest LED stadium screen in the world. Inside the arena, Osram will also be fitting four additional high-definition screens from 30m to 7.5m with LEDs, which will display the current score or slow-motion shots.

The lights used will produce pitch lighting that ,at 5,000 lux, is almost twice as intense as, for instance, that in Munich’s Allianz Arena. At the same time, the energy-efficient technologies used will require considerably fewer individual points of light than with conventional lighting technology. This will not only help to save electricity costs, but will also reduce expenditure in terms of installation and maintenance.
