Optus Stadium

Perth, Western Australia

 

Optus Stadium, the Government of Western Australia’s vision to create a multi-purpose facility that truly delivered a unique experience for fans and the wider Perth community has come to life.

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


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.

 

The Philips Lighting project team worked collaboratively throughout the entire design, installation and commissioning process to deliver a multi-purpose, state-of-the-art lighting system.
