Musco’s LED lights shine brighter at Twickenham

An LED lighting solution from Musco is being used as a way to enhance the playing and viewing experience at Twickenham Stadium. The installation is part of the Rugby Football Union’s stadium redevelopment plan. Musco’s solution offers a higher level of efficiency and more targeted lighting than the previous system, which also means that the spill light and glare coming from the stadium is reduced. Instant on/off/dimming controls enable the stadium to feature special effects lighting.

Crashing through the ice at skating competition

Spread out over 3sq miles in St. Paul, Minnesota, US, Harman Martin Professional fixtures were used to light the track and viewing area at Red Bull’s Crashed Ice event. An after-dark competitive ice cross downhill skating event, Crashed Ice takes place four times a year on temporary 1,500ft long ice tracks in different cities. 108 of Martin’s new fixture, the MAC Quantum Wash, were used for their colour rendering, beam punch, and low weight, mounted on towers along the track. MAC Viper Wash DX units were used in filling in dark sections of the tracks, making the races more photogenic.

Saints install Vision Accendo’s new stadium floodlight

Vision Accendo has launched the 600W and 900W Vision Sphere LED Stadium Floodlight. It has been installed at Southampton Football Club’s St Mary’s Stadium, where it had to meet the new and exacting Premiership lighting standards for Sky 4K broadcasting. The company says the floodlight is ideal for use in sporting environments as it includes glare reduction reflectors and lens technology to enhance lighting output, a flicker rate of 0.2 per cent and a low overall weight per light. Other installations have also taken place in the UK.

Robe’s extreme solution

A moving light rig from Robe helped light the way at a festival of extreme sports in South Africa. The Ultimate X festival took place at the Grand Arena in Cape Town over two days, and featured freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding.

A combination of 42 Robe moving lights were used, including four BMFL Spots and four miniPointes. The BMFLs were positioned on the edges of the main rig as their powerful beams could deal with the extreme throw distances and the 10 metre trim height. The spots also lit the FMX ‘kicker’ – or launch ramps.
