LUMASPORT LED Sports Lighting System Patents Optimize Operations While Saving Costs

Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, NY is the first high school field to employ the new Ephesus LUMASPORT sports lighting system.

The new LUMASPORT Sports Lighting System uses advanced LED lighting technology patents designed for both indoor and outdoor use. This is important to know as the northern hemisphere is about to enter into the fall and winter solstice months meaning indoor sporting events are back on despite the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to spread across America. Whether for live sports, practice or training needs, this innovative and smart LED lighting solution improves performance with industry leading reliability for the operation and illumination of field, arena and stadium lighting solutions used by a wide range of users, from professional sports teams to youth organizations. The Sports Techie community blog believes in the development of sustainability inspired sports tech products, solutions and systems such as happened when LED replaced outdated metal halide lighting structures and lights. The next lighting evolution for operators, players and fans is here.

Cooper Lighting’s new Ephesus LUMASPORT Sports Lighting System Improves Control, Performance and Reliability.


Ephesus Sports Lighting is a division of Cooper Lighting Solutions. They developed LUMASPORT system to optimize control, enhance optical performance and provide product reassurances while at the same time helping to minimize the total cost of ownership, maintenance troubleshooting and installation hurdles.

LUMASPORT 8 is for small college, high school and municipal fields while LUMASPORT 16 is a better fit for larger outdoor professional and collegiate stadia.

“In the growing sports lighting market, there are inherent challenges with legacy lighting products, such as light pollution, excessive maintenance and lack of user control,” said Mike Quijano, director of business development & product marketing for EphesusSports Lighting. “LUMASPORT provides an ideal solution to these challenges-a high-quality, reliable, cost-optimized system that’s backed by an industry leader.”

Control from Anywhere

LUMASPORT offers white light and a wide array of dynamic entertainment scenes and can be expanded to offer color light with the addition of Ephesus Prism RGBA color fixtures. The system can be completely controlled through a wired DMX or through the Ephesus AirMesh wireless lighting system, which maximizes operator control via LAN connection, Wi-Fi or through a cellular network, allowing operators to schedule and manage the lights via their cellphone from anywhere.

Optimum Optical Performance

LUMASPORT 8 addresses the important concerns for municipal field operators of sky glow and light pollution via a new, patented multi-layered optical system. It seamlessly combines reflector optics with TIR silicone to prioritize and balance light delivery, cutoff, glare control and playability.

The LUMASPORT 16 features a deeply recessed LED source inside the main reflector cavity and a patented new reflector and louver optical system. The internal louver, which is inside of each individual reflector cavity, provides unprecedented control to improve cutoff and reduce glare at the light source deep within the fixture. The innovative new system balances light delivery and playability while meeting the stringent performance requirements of fans, players and broadcasters.

“Our LUMASPORT system is built to meet the many needs of new and legacy applications, and to solve the problems and challenges many existing LED systems have presented to venue owners and operators,” said Quijano. “No matter what size field or arena you are looking to illuminate, LUMASPORT will make your facility-and your events-shine.”

Reliability/Reduced Maintenance

Most sports lighting manufacturers use surface-mount LEDs with unreliable solder joints affixing the LED to the array. But LUMASPORT offers industry-leading light-source reliability with chip-on-board LEDs, which bond the LED chips directly to the fixture’s substrate, to form a single, module that is much stronger and more reliable.

LUMASPORT is also the only fixture with a redundant power supply. This patented internal surge-protected dual-power architecture enables the fixture to operate even if one of the drivers fails, avoiding fixture outage, maintaining foot-candles on the field to ensure playability, and eliminating downtime and maintenance calls.

Less Installation Time and Cost

The patented Ephesus Quick Mount system provides a pre-aimable two-piece assembly that dramatically reduces the LUMASPORT’s installation time and cost. Contractors simply pre-aim each fixture with a dial for both orientation and tilt before affixing it to the mounting infrastructure, instead of having to aim each fixture onto the playing surface with a laser to achieve the required precision. Once the fixture is mounted, it provides pinpoint accuracy. As a result, by practically eliminating the need for lasers, LUMASPORT can be installed any time, day or night.

The Ephesus LUMASPORT 16 is ideal for college and professional stadiums.

Sports Techie, the era of the smart stadium is upon us. As artificial intelligence, machine learning and VR/AR change the fan and player experiences, so to must infrastructure systems and products keep pace.

Cooper Lighting knows the history of lighting. They work in the present to upgrade lighting systems worldwide, no matter the scale. Ephesus Sports Lighting also has an eye for the future of the industry.

LUMASPORT is their proprietary system for the lighting solution ages.
