PR Lighting fixtures used at Asian Games ceremonies

AUTHOR: Inavate

Rental company Calite featured a large number of PR Lighting fixtures for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Asian games held at Asiad Main Stadium in Incheon, South Korea.

Close to 200 heads from PR Lighting were deployed to perform a myriad of tasks. The inventory included more than 100 PR 5000 Spot, Wash and Framing variants, many of them positioned on the top of the roof, along with XR 330 Beams, to deliver strident lighting effects directly to the center of the stage during the music sequences, which included performers such as Psy. 

The fixtures used were purchased and customized specifically for the event and Canlite performed rigorous quality control and testing to ensure the lighting met the stringent standards for broadcast. At the same time the PR Lighting fixtures also met the specifications of lighting designer, Han Soon Na, and his programmer, Young Gu Kang.

Canlite’s Sang Shin Lee said: "We chose these fixtures because they are both powerful and fully featured, with advanced functions, reliability and excellent all round performance."
