Sports venue lighting should also take into account the needs of the audience to watch the game.


The level of illumination required by athletes is different from that of the audience. The athletes are placed in the arena, relatively close to the line of sight, so the relatively low level of illumination can meet the needs of the game; the audience is different, their purpose is to watch the game Relatively speaking, the viewer's line of sight is far away, and the viewing position is relatively fixed.

High heat, metal halide sublimation into vapor, direct emission of visible light, energy saving 80% to 90%. Metal halide lamp is the third generation of green lighting source emerging in the world after incandescent lamp and halogen lamp, with high luminous efficiency and long service life. Such advantages, widely used in military, adventure, outdoor lighting, field search and rescue, etc. Compared with ordinary incandescent lamps, metal halide lamps have amazing energy-saving effects and huge market space." The power of lamps can reach 1000W-2000W, and the installation height of lamps can reach 50m-60m. However, the metal halide lamp has a short service life, a single color temperature, poor color rendering, and long startup time, which have become increasingly incompatible with the lighting requirements of the stadium. With the rapid development of LED lighting applications, the application of LED in stadium lighting has also attracted more and more people's attention.
