“Our top-down strategy for design, project management & implementation of our LED solution at the Moda Center was in equal parts challenging & satisfying. Very often, both building operators and LED suppliers have a propensity to direct more attention towards energy savings rather than a more holistic approach. Our philosophy, which is especially true for professional sports teams, is to fully comprehend how an LED conversion can impact the visual experience for players, fans, facility operators & broadcast personnel. We are extremely grateful for the collaboration opportunity with the NBA and the Moda Center and to have successfully implemented what is largely considered to be the best-in-class arena LED installation to date.”
