Lighting Systems Simplifying Sports Events Coverage


Lighting forms the base of video production and hence is regarded as the most vital element in videography since it helps in setting the mood, in reducing the time involved in editing, and ultimately determines the quality of the project. Light effects become even more important while covering sports events since they are streamed live and there is barely any scope for error corrections and no scope for retakes while covering such events. Here, top-quality lighting becomes extremely important for both spectators as well as players.
Understanding the gravity of adverse effect that poor lighting can have especially while covering a sports event and considering various facts like operational costs involved while creating immersive effects apart from maintenance issues, Broadcast Video Producer has made an attempt to analyse and enlist a few of the best illuminating systems available that can help you in creating lucid videos.

Osram Floodlight 20 maxi LED


The Floodlight 20 LED family (micro, mini and midi) enables sports lighting and building-based planar lighting to be implemented with high efficiency, and at the same time with maximum demands for quality of light, functionality, design and individual needs.

The secret with such flexibility is the platform concept and modular design of the complete system. The result is a solution that in terms of appearance and functionality comes from a single cast, for a wide diversity of applications including the illumination of plazas, traffic routes, loading systems and container terminals as well as further versions for airport apron lighting and facade illumination in building-vicinity areas, and the TV broadcast-compliant illumination of sports locations with HDTV and super slow motion quality.

The family design has been consistently implemented across all construction sizes: all sizes have identical proportions, the same high quality of materials and appearance. Photometrically, they all feature the same lens-based LED platform with precise light control and glare-minimised optics, for maximum quality of light and best visual comfort. The principle of construction is also identical – each construction size consists of three functional units: the LED module, the housing with ECG, and the mounting components. This provides maximum convenience during installation, and also a future-fit investment thanks to the modular design and high quality.

The benefits of this range includes: • Long service life: up to 100,000h
• High system efficiency: up to 120lm/W
• Ambient temperature: indoors -30…+45°C, outdoors -30…+55°C
• Luminous flux adaptation according to needs via intelligent ECG
• Precise planning thanks to pre-defined light distribution patterns for plazas and roads, further Versions also for planar illumination and sports
• Flexibility with design using diverse light colours
• Future safety thanks to upgradable modular design
• Perfect installation and simple handling thanks to adjustable




Osram SiCOMPACT R3 MAXI

SiCOMPACT R3 MAXI fulfils the highest demands for performance and visual comfort as well as energy efficiency and operating cost efficiency. As such the luminaire is perfect for lighting sports arenas and large public areas. The version for operation with electronic control gear emits flicker-free light for TV-compliant illumination. Its innovative construction combines state-of-the-art lighting and luminaire technology to achieve light output ratios of up to 87%. The projector has been designed for luminous intensities of 2,000 to 30,000cd/klm and can be adapted to a wide range of optical lighting tasks with seven various adjustments.

The lighting technology has been optimised for the use of high efficiency 1000W or 2000W HIT-DE lamps, and with the special reflector geometry enables precise control of light with minimal light spill and glare. For longer maintenance cycles and a very high luminaire service life, the projector is equipped with an efficient thermal management system, reflected in the construction of the luminaire: eye-catching cooling ribs dominate the rear of the slimline projector. The rear is secured by a robust and practical locking catch that can be opened without tools for maintenance. The luminaire form and front side determine the relatively large-area optic. Construction of the housing has been kept as flat and as efficient as possible in order to minimise the effects of wind. The special aerodynamics, low weight and sophisticated sealing system make applications possible world-wide in nearly all weather conditions.

Osram LS160 LED


With an efficiency up to 158 lm/W, LS160 LED operates more than twice as efficient as its conventional predecessor. Pre-specified connection situations can be used with refurbishments. Optimised new connection points and a therefore reduced number of luminaires offer additional savings potential.

But besides naked figures, an industrial company has to take care of productivity and safety, too. And to this, the very best visual conditions are the base. This applies also for sports halls. The LS160 LED is precisely the right solution for such demands: The prismatic, semi-specular optic (PS) is not only glare-reducing, but enables also low luminance levels that are comparable to the glare levels of standard T5 highbays. This even allows direct views into the luminaire without problems.

With so many LED wattage choices, using our LED sports light we can light up your small baseball or football field to your larger. Major league style fields. Soccer field lighting or outdoor basketball court lighting are also excellent applications for this fixture. Available in wattages ranging from a 400 watt equivalent to a 1500-2000 watt equal, we can furnish you a lighting layout for any sports lighting project you have.

Mounting

Mounting the sports light is very simple, made to mount to a metal cross arm, there is a 5/8 bolt and nut at the bottom of the fixture. This will drop down to into the standard drilled hole on the cross arm and after alignment you can tighten this bolt secure. We also have slip fitter mounts, (slips over a 2” pipe), as well as single brackets to mount to vertical structures. You can also replace the bottom bolt with a longer bolt to accommodate wood style cross arms.
