The soccer world championship is just around the corner and host country Brazil is bracing itself for its big debut. A total of twelve cities will host the games. One of them will be held in the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paolo, where things are running at full speed. When completed, 68,000 fans will fit in the stadium. They will not only be presented with great plays on the field, but in the true sense of the word, the arena shines. In the area of lighting design, OSRAM is setting new standards in the Arena Corinthians.
“The high tech lighting solutions go far above the stringent standards set by FIFA,” says Michael Pleuser, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing for OSRAM. Energy efficient LED and metal fume lamps light up the field with a total of 5000 Lux. In addition, it has the largest LED stadium screen, which measures 170 m x 20 m, in the world. “It is a one of a kind concept developed specifically for the customer,” Pleuser continued.
