    The customer challenge


    For the new fields, AHC IJburg wanted the best lighting, but as durable as possible. The owner of the sports park, the municipality of Amsterdam, was convinced by the installer that Philips OptiVision LED was the best lighting solution. Proof was provided by means of a pilot. The OptiVision was shown to be not only very energy-efficient, but it also offers many other advantages...

    The right lighting 


    Many club members were afraid, namely, that they would be bothered by the bright light or even that they would no longer see the ball. However, the opposite was true. Reactions from club members include the statements: "You see the ball much better. There are fewer shadowy spots. Great light!" The choice for environment-friendly lighting is also appreciated. One extra advantage is that you can turn the light on and off quickly, in addition the light can even be dimmed. According to the installer, Oostendorp Nederland, the players will hardly notice the difference if one of the modules unexpectedly fails. This is due to the unique optical multilayer system, in which every single LED delivers the full lighting distribution, allowing perfect lighting uniformity during the system lifetime. And in the rare event that a failure happens, the problem can be solved the same day. That’s because  only the module, and not the whole luminaire, needs to be replaced. "Whereas you previously replaced a bulb, we can now quickly replace a module. This means that the maintenance costs are many times lower than before."
