#NFL take note: How to avoid major stadium blackouts in the future? @EDNmagazine talks the benefits of #LED lighting

LED lighting has reached the stage of technology that enables it to be implemented even in field and stadium lighting venues. This technology is another possible help in reducing down time in failures like that in New Orleans at the Super Bowl this year. Check out this video using HiViz lights with CREE LEDs for fields or stadiums with “instant-on” and “instant-off” capability. If proper engineered design is put in place and LED lights are used, these are the top two solutions that might have avoided the problem of ‘blackout” on February 3 at the 2013 Super Bowl. Please give us your expert insights into other possible solutions or comments on this electrical design problem. References 1 M.J.
