Floodlighting for color-TV means a higher level of illuminance than used by former floodlighting systems. As there are re-commendations for the level and the uniformity of the vertical illuminance each point of the field is to be illuminated from eacn pole. This means at every point of the field the players face a number of light sources with high luminance. There are also demands for direct lighting of the stands.The results of some model experiments show that the discomfort glare caused by floodlighting for color-TV is not intolerably high.
