A World Première
in Ekinox Arena
for both basketball games andshows. Hence, ArenaVision LED floodlights had to illuminatenot only the playing area but also the stage and public area."
- Fabrice Pacquelet, director of JL Bourg basketball club director
In 2011, Bourg-en-Bresse Agglomeration (BBA) decided to renovate its exhibition center Ainterexpo. The center was built in the 1970s and had three halls. Beginning of this year a fourth hall was added with a space of 9,940 m2. Thanks to the modularity of its stands and its technical platform, the main hall can accommodate performances in 360°. Only an exceptional lighting system could match this modernity – that is how ArenaVision LED became involved.
The floodlights not only had to illuminate the playing area but also the stage area and the public space. It was also important for the JL Bourg basketball club to be able to switch the floodlights off completely and then switch it on again a few seconds later for the show element prior to the game, which had not been possible with metal halide lamps. ArenaVision LED can get to full power in just a few seconds.
