Product family information

ArenaVision MVF403 takes sports floodlighting to the highest level, offering very high light output, optical efficiency, ease of installation, reliability and flexibility. It is ideal for indoor sports halls (1000 W version) as well as many outdoor sports and other lighting applications. The integrated system of oval optics and compact double-ended MHN-LA 1000W or MHN-SA HO 2000W lamps ensures outstanding system efficiency and low glare. A built-in reflector skirt reduces spill light and glare even further. The MHN-SA HO 2000W/956 and MHN-LA 1000W/956 lamps meet the highest international CTV requirements. With the MHN-LA 1000W/842 lamp, the natural colour rendering and comfortable atmosphere are well suited to TV and filming as well as other floodlighting applications. Hot re-strike versions are available for all lamp types, enabling immediate restoration of lighting after power supply failure. The (optional) flicker-free version of ArenaVision MVF403 MHN-LA 1000W is designed to ensure that the flicker effect is fully eliminated in order to guarantee perfect images filmed with super-slow-motion cameras at sports events. The flicker-free version of ArenaVision MVF403 comes equipped with a special electronic igniter, which works in combination with Philips' electronic ballast GearUnits (ECM330), to be ordered separately.
