The ArenaVision MVF404 floodlight – designed for outdoor sports stadiums – dramatically increases the theatrical and emotional impact of sports for TV audiences and spectators, while allowing the players to perform under optimal visual conditions. Thanks to the innovative Philips MHN-SE 2000 W high-output compact single-ended metal-halide lamp and high-tech single-piece precision optics, ArenaVision MVF404 offers much higher optical efficiency than ever before. In addition, this 2 kW floodlight boasts easy lamp fitting and replacement, full IP65 compliance, safety knife connector system and a breakthrough electronic hot-restrike solution – while continuing to deliver all the traditional benefits of Philips ArenaVision systems. The (optional) flicker-free version of ArenaVision MVF404 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 MVF404 comes equipped with a special electronic igniter, which works in combination with Philips' electronic-ballast GearUnits (ECM330), to be ordered separately.
