Floodlights are high intensity lamps used to provide artificial light to large areas. They are commonly used in sports stadiums and theaters to create visibility and highlight specific areas. Floodlights can also be used for searchlights in emergency situations.

Floodlights are mechanisms designed to provide artificial light to a large expanse or area. The actual projectors will include the use of high intensity lamps configured to withstand repeated use over extended periods of time. Due to this property, the projectors work very well in sports stadiums and theater stages.
When used as part of a sports stadium’s lighting system, lighting panels are usually installed at strategic points around the perimeter of the playing field. The powerful lamps are arranged in sections at each installation point and trained to highlight a certain portion of the field. Often, the overall effect of floodlights is to create the same degree of visibility as possible in full sunlight during the central hours of the day. The use of floodlights revolutionized sports like baseball and soccer, as the lights made it possible to play games into the evening hours.

Theatrical performances such as plays and concerts also benefit from the presence of spotlights. Generally, the arrangement and function of the lights is more complex than the systems used in sports arenas. As well as providing an ample amount of general light for the stage area, the lamp system will also incorporate spotlights which can be used to create more attention over an area of ​​the stage. Spotlights are often used when a singer is performing a solo or an actor is delivering an important soliloquy during a performance.

Another common use of floodlights is in creating a floodlight system for a municipality or waterfront. Searchlights can allow rescue teams and local law officials to quickly scan a large area in no time. This use of searchlights can often lead to saving lives and help protect the citizens of a particular city or country from some kind of danger.
