Vertex Solutions lights up New Era Field with new LED lighting system

Posted by on September 26, 2017 – 4:23 pm

The Buffalo Bills are playing under the lights of a significantly upgraded LED system at New Era Field this season. Vertex Solutions has installed a new Carolina High Mast LED light system at the home of the Bills. The new system has cut energy consumption in half, while increasing lighting levels nearly 30%. While saving 390 kilowatts over the course of the season, it still renders a more crisp, white light that shows colors more true for a clear high definition television broadcast. The Carolina High Mast system also utilizes ultra low flicker technology to allow more extreme slow motion replay to be seen with clear illumination that is not possible with other systems.

Historically, stadium lights have lengthy warm-up periods, which can lead to delays in game action following a power disruption, and can consume excess energy. Carolina High Mast’s system offers instant performance, eliminating the long start delays. It also contains an integral DMX control unit, which will allow New Era Field the ability to initiate flashing, strobing and chasing of lights, which can enhance the experience for concerts and special events.

Vertex Solutions is the local representative of Texas-based Carolina High Mast, a leader in outdoor lighting for more than 20 years. New Era Field is the third professional sports venue to install a CHM system this year, joining SunTrust Park (Atlanta) and AT&T Park (San Francisco).
