LakePoint Sporting Community in Georgia is the First Multi-Field Sports Complex to Use Musco’s Advanced LED Lighting System

LakePoint Sporting Community, the world’s largest sports vacation destination, has partnered with the leading innovator of sports lighting solutions, Musco Lighting, to provide a LED lighting system for enhanced playability and energy efficiency. LakePoint is the first multi-field sports complex to use Musco’s cutting-edge lighting solution harnessing LED technology to direct more light onto the playing surface.

The specially designed LED lighting system enhances playability by significantly reducing glare, improving visibility for both players and spectators. Batters and outfielders will especially notice the dramatic reduction of glare. The lighting system has over 122,000 LEDs mounted in nearly 1,300 luminaires that have been custom designed for advanced light control.

“This lighting is unlike any other that I’ve seen,” said Perfect Game Spring Swing Director, Kevin Herlihy. “There is no yellowish or dingy hue and it has up-lights that light the bottom of the baseballs. We took numerous fly balls with Musco's R&D team that were much higher than what we'll see on typical nights, and we never lost track of any in the night's sky.”

In addition, the LED lighting system will maximize LakePoint’s efficient use of energy with instant on/off capabilities and dimming controls, which allow for the light output to be adjusted when full power of the system is not needed. Musco’s Control-Link™ System also provides flexible control and management of each field with easy-to-use scheduling and reporting capabilities through web-based software and a 24/7-call center.

“At LakePoint, we strive to find innovative ways to make the world of sports a better & safer place, while minimizing our environmental footprint,” says LakePoint CEO, Earl Ehrhart. “By partnering with Musco, we are much closer to achieving both of those goals. We look forward to sharing the enhanced experience with future LakePoint guests.”

"We are excited to partner with LakePoint to deliver a cutting-edge LED lighting solution for their state-of-the-art sports complex," said Musco Lighting's Vice President of Developmental Sales, Jeff Rogers. "This efficient lighting system will contribute to the sustainability goals of LakePoint with a dramatic reduction in energy consumption, while delivering an exceptional experience for players and spectators."

The LED lighting system has been completed on LakePoint’s south campus. Perfect Game USA and Rally Volleyball, two of LakePoint’s long-term sports tenants, will be the first beneficiaries to experience the effects of Musco’s LED lighting.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
"We help to transform an organization and their operations and make them more efficient, more agile, and more nimble to move into the cloud or to move between cloud providers and create an agnostic tool set," noted Jeremy Steinert, DevOps Services Practice Lead at WSM International, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
