GE and Iwasaki Electric established a joint venture, EYE Lighting Systems Corporation, in 1973. EYE Lighting has manufactured lighting equipment for stadiums, sports arenas and other athletic facilities in Japan for more than 40 years. Through products manufactured by this collaboration, GE will supply LED lighting solutions for the competition venues of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Tokyo 2020 is envisioned to be the first Games in the Olympics’ long history to have LED lighting installed at the competition venues in a full-fledged manner. The benefits of installing LEDs at these venues include energy savings of around 50% compared to conventional lighting equipment. It also greatly reduces lighting maintenance because of the products’ longevity. LED lighting also ensures uniform lighting without unevenness so that the athletes can concentrate on competing to perform at their best. Event organizers can also achieve various stage effects with instantaneous lighting and dimming.

GE has a proven global track record in developing and selling LED systems for sporting venues, both indoors and outdoors.GE Lighting has a track record in supporting cities with their next generation sustainable infrastructure with its new lighting solutions based on new technology and know-how. In particular, as an official worldwide Olympic partner, GE has superb credentials of delivering products that meet the specifications for lighting equipment at Olympic competition venues. At present, the company is partnering with the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to support the operations of the Games, through installation of infrastructure equipment.

Meanwhile, Iwasaki Electric has superior expertise in LED lighting environments in Japan with a diverse LED product line-up for applications ranging from commercial facilities to outdoor lighting. This year Iwasaki Electric was selected out of various sports lighting systems as the first to convert the lighting facilities at Yokohama Stadium in Yokohama City to LED technology for its night games, a first for professional baseball outdoor night game lighting facilities in Japan. The company also has an extensive network throughout the country providing a full set of services.
