Optus Stadium is the largest LED sports lighting installation in the world, comprising 891 LED floodlights. Completely multi-functional, the stadium can not only host a range of international sports including AFL, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Soccer, Soccer FIFA 5, Cricket and Athletics, but has also met the stringent television broadcast requirement for each format.
“We’ve got a great score on the television consistency index, which is quite a robust and hard standard to meet, but critical for the broadcast sports” - Neil Merritt, Senior Services Manager, Multiplex
There are more than 60 VIP areas and 95 corporate suites and lighting perfectly complements the specific space requirements, creates right ambience and atmosphere. The distinctive arbour lighting has been created using colour-changing LED to illuminate the shapes and forms of the space. This spectacular visual, featuring 621 RGB fixtures throughout the 500m space, has been designed to enhance the architectural vision. Central to the stadium’s aesthetic is the façade and roof lighting, which incorporates a fully controllable LED solution featuring 650 RGB LED lighting fixtures and integrates dynamic elements and world class technology to create a stunning visual impact.
