A new LED sports lighting system and audio system upgrade will debut at Valley View Casino Center Friday evening when the San Diego Gulls face the Ontario Reign.

The 400-watt LED lights will improve visibility, and deliver more light onto the playing surface, instantly and efficiently control dimming and theatrical control of the lights, provide special effects and LED color- changing fixtures, and enhance broadcasts with superior light quality during Gulls telecasts on FOX 5 San Diego, according to Matt Savant, the Gulls president of business operations.

The system installed by Musco Lighting will result in a significant savings in energy consumption for the arena, Savant said.

Also debuting at Friday evening’s American Hockey League game is a high- definition JBL audio system that includes 50 1,750-watt speakers and eight 1,500-watt subwoofers, Savant said.
