Bankers Life Fieldhouse, home to the NBA’s Indiana Pacers, is regarded by fans as “The World’s Greatest Basketball Arena.” In 2017, with the addition of Musco’s state-of-the-art Total Light Control—TLC for LED™ lighting system, the venue got even better.
The installation of TLC for LED was a major aspect of a monumental year for the Pacers, which included a new court at the arena, a new practice facility, and new uniforms. The new LED lighting delivered a significant change to Bankers Life Fieldhouse. While the previous system illuminated virtually the entire arena, TLC for LED has created a more dramatic stage-like atmosphere for Pacers games.
Key benefits include:
- Transformed Experience – the system applies a whiter and more uniform light focused on the court while leaving most of the arena’s seating darkened.
- Improved Visibility – patented optics and glare control technology result in better visibility while virtually eliminating glare for players and spectators.
- Improved Broadcasts – the lighting meets television broadcast requirements and removes the “flicker” effect that can disrupt slow-motion replays.
- Customized Solution – the project involved the fabrication of custom brackets and a system that would adapt to the arena’s unique architectural environment.
Additionally, with Musco’s long-term warranty covering parts and labor, the Pacers won’t have to worry about handling any maintenance, or paying for it, for the next 10 years.
