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 primetime television in football season’s return this past Sunday night.
As one of the largest NFL venues, AT&T Stadium opened in 2009 as the new home of the Dallas Cowboys. Featuring the world’s largest centre-hung video board, the 80,000-seat stadium has been on the forefront of innovation.
Jeff Rogers, Vice President, Musco Lighting, said:
We are thrilled to partner with the Dallas Cowboys to deliver a solution for the lighting needs of such a prestigious venue. Our system maximises 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 direct light onto the field and not into the players or spectators’ eyes
- Reduces energy consumption by 76 percent compared to the prior lights
- Increases light levels by 42 percent
- Includes structural, electrical and lighting components designed as a system for reliable, long-term performance
- Eliminates maintenance with Musco’s parts and labour warranty backed by a team of technicians
Additionally, the characteristics of the LED light source eliminates the “flicker” effect for excellent slow motion replay and provides instant on/off, as well as dimming capabilities.
Scott Woodrow, Director of Building Engineering, AT&T Stadium, said:
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. Quality and technical expertise were key in making this decision and Musco delivered on both fronts.
