Using disparate lighting control systems, Lambeau Field sought a solution from one single lighting platform.
In operation since 1957, Lambeau Field is one of the most legendary and long-standing sporting venues in the United States. The stadium underwent a significant renovation in 2001 and has added several upgrades and expansions since then. As a result of these two decades of changes, there were over 12 disparate lighting control systems from different manufacturers that were not fully integrated. This sparked the search for a single technology provider that could unify and standardize solutions into one ecosystem.
Lambeau Field transitioned the vast majority of lighting in the stadium to Crestron, which now controls concourses, suites, club seats, event spaces, parking lots and façade lighting from a single platform. The stadium also implemented robust information security standards that Crestron built into the makeup of its solutions using Active Directory Credential Management, which integrates the authentication on a Crestron device with the stadium's enterprise-wide IT infrastructure. Through this monitoring, facilities personnel can proactively keep track of their system instead of having to react to situations, ensuring that on gameday, they know the system will work as intended.
“The decision to standardize on Crestron was an easy one,” said Anne Larson, facilities office coordinator for the Green Bay Packers. “It was evident that it could handle every aspect of the project, including meeting required IT security standards using Active Directory. We now have one vendor and one system that is easy to use and update.”
