The Dallas Cowboys unveiled a new state-of-the-art LED lighting system provided by Musco Lighting in their home opener on September 13. The new lighting system was showcased on prime-time television.
One of the largest NFL venues, AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, USA, opened in 2009 as the new home of the Dallas Cowboys. Featuring the world’s largest center hung video board, the 80,000-seat stadium has been a key supporter of technology and innovation.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Dallas Cowboys to deliver a solution for the lighting needs of such a prestigious venue,” said Jeff Rogers, vice president of Musco Lighting. “Our system maximizes energy efficiency, provides ideal lighting for HD television broadcasts, and includes special effects capabilities that will provide an unmatched entertainment experience.”
Musco’s SportsCluster Green system with an LED light source will provide several benefits for athletes, fans, and HD broadcasts, including custom optics which direct light onto the field and not into the players or spectators’ eyes; an energy consumption reduction of 76% compared with the prior lights; increased light levels of 42%; a design that includes structural, electrical, and lighting components as a single system, for reliable, long-term performance; and the elimination of maintenance, thanks to a Musco parts and labor warranty backed by a team of technicians. The LED light source also eliminates the flicker effect, for excellent slow motion replay and provides instant on/off/dimming capabilities.
“As we look for ways to keep AT&T Stadium at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, Musco provided the solution for our stadium lighting needs,” said Scott Woodrow, director of building engineering at AT&T Stadium. “Quality and technical expertise were key in making this decision and Musco delivered on both fronts.”
