Owing to their three-dimensional shape, the 64 sail-like canopies needed to be lit up by differently located fixtures, in order to reach the required uniformity of tones and light output. Capable of delivering a remarkable performance from an extremely compact unit, ZAPHIR RGBW was successfully employed to enhance this core part of the stadium. 2 units were positioned at the top and 2 at the base of each canopy, while 1 unit was located as backlighting behind each sail, thus requiring a total of 5 units to illuminate a single canopy. A total number of 320 ZAPHIR RGBW colour changers were therefore used for the specific lighting of these elements. Owing to a comprehensive selection of optics groups, ZAPHIR RGBW is suitable for a variety of lighting installations which require maximum photometric flexibility. Its capacitive touchscreen display allows a direct access to all on-board functions. Moreover, the full digital control system, obtainable from any five-channel remote DMX512 control desk, includes stand alone functions implemented by pre-configured colour sequences and Master-Slave mode for multiple units synchronization.
Offering an unforgettable aerial view of the stadium by night, 32 POWERSHINE S RGBW units were distributed all around the top edge of the bowl to illuminate its partial roofing. 64 DMX receivers and 4 DMX transmitters were specified to obtain an optimal wireless digital control of the whole lighting equipment. The DMX radio signal receivers are available as separate IP65 rated units to be externally applied to the lighting fixture or they may come as an integrated on board system, depending on the site conditions and the lighting equipment utilized. The advanced technology wireless DMX signal transmitter units handle all 512 DMX channels with a maximum frequency of 250Kpbs and have a typical outdoor transmission of 700m. Supporting frequency selection flexibility to avoid interference conflicts with adjacent similar devices running different programmes and other radio spectrum users, both these dynamic devices are built in accordance with CE standards and are supplied with legal signal frequency management.
The smart combination of all the GRIVEN "top players” has allowed the team to achieve an impressive final result: a well scored goal!
