Optus stadium

“The trend in
world sport

is that people are tending to stay in their living rooms, so we had to encourage people to get out of their house and come and watch live sport. We wanted to create a unique experience that you cannot get on television.” 


The community have been absolutely blown away by what a fantastic facility has actually been created here in Perth.And the ability to light up the stadium with your team colours on a game day is magnificent.”

Customer challenge

 

A key challenge for the project team, was keeping pace with technological advancements as the stadium was built over six years. This meant working in very close partnership to assess designs and plans at every stage throughout the project to ensure that on completion, Optus Stadium had the most sophisticated technologies to deliver on the vision of the Government of Western Australia.

The right lighting

 

The new Optus Stadium in Perth, Western Australia is now the largest LED illuminated stadium in the world, a stunning example of stadium design that embraces the very latest in Philips LED technologies. Dynalite control, networking and integration technologies are integral to meeting the challenge of coordination and maintenance of a project of this scale. 

Optus Stadium is a multipurpose site that hosts international sporting events during the day and turns into a function venue at night. The Dynalite control system coordinates all lighting from a central location using the System Manager head-end software. This system coordinates messaging via multiple network devices to 21,500 DALI fittings organized into 368 DALI universes. Local lighting control is supported by 350 Antumbra user interfaces, providing fine-tuned control over lighting scenes to cater to the needs of any function or event. The Dynalite network spans over 43,000 m of DyNet cable, making it one of the largest lighting control networks in Australia. 

System Manager’s intuitively designed custom interface allows facility management to control all aspects of the venue’s lighting, such as preconfigured scene selection, channel level adjustment, and scheduling or triggering of scripted tasks and events. The software constantly monitors the system and performs maintenance functions, including scheduled testing and reporting on the status of every DALI fitting. This ensures that the design integrity of the lighting can be maintained throughout the life of the stadium, while delivering massive time and cost savings over manual inspection, and unnecessary maintenance work. 

1,300 Dynalite sensors automatically monitor occupancy throughout the stadium, dimming or turning off lights in unused areas. Even outdoor areas are monitored by Dynalite’s latest IP rated sensors, leading to considerable savings on both energy usage and lamp life across the entire venue. 

Within the corporate boxes and function rooms, Dynalite integrates with AV systems to ensure that all elements within each space work seamlessly together. Dynalite gateways also allow the system to drive DMX colour-changing light fixtures, allowing different rooms to be set to team colours to further enhance the game experience. 

This combination of Philips LED lighting and Dynalite control and maintenance management makes the ongoing operation of such a fantastic example of stadium design seem effortless, and will set the benchmark for many stadiums to come.
