    Customer challenge

     

    Philips ColorGraze colour-changing LED lighting, combined with Pharos controls, is enabling the new first direct arena in Leeds to come alive at night with a kaleidoscope of colour to suit different events.

    First Direct Arena

    The right lighting 

     

    The Philips ColorGraze luminaires are used to provide colour-changing lighting using red, green and blue energy-efficient LEDs with 9 degree beam angles to provide an almost infinite choice of colours with a high level of saturation. Control is delivered through a Pharos system which can be accessed via an internet-based control interface for ease of access by the venue operators.

     

    A further benefit of using ColorGraze was its PowerCore technology, which facilitates installation by using single leaders and jumpers cables to link the products, avoiding the need for separate drivers or data cabling. At the first direct Arena the PowerCore system is also used for onsite addressing.

     

    This combination of Pharos controls and PowerCore system enables the arena to adapt lighting scenes to suit each event, with potential for linking to triggers such as motion, temperature and music inputs.
