SLL Lecture London’s Legacy: A Celebration in Light
October 11, 2012
The Building Centre, London
The evening’s lecture describes the floodlighting of the Olympic Arena, introduces techniques to overcome lighting of high-definition TV in arenas generally and highlights the magnificent lighting of the New Year’s Eve and Jubilee celebrations in London.
On Monday, 4 June 2012 the Diamond Jubilee Concert was set against the spectacular backdrop of Buckingham Palace, celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s 60 year reign. Described by the Times as “a Triumph of Illumination” the concert, produced by the BBC, was one of the most spectacular shows ever staged in the UK. The BBC and music maestro Gary Barlow brought together some of the biggest names from the worlds of music and musical theater. Join world renowned lighting designer Durham Marenghi and discover why BBC Director Geoff Posner said of the event “…without doubt the most exciting lighting design I’ve ever worked with.”
Philips Lighting’s Mike Simpson will describe the floodlighting at the Olympic Arena and more generally Arup will discuss Good HDTV Sports Lighting Design for Television – What is required? Major stadium design considerations include vertical illumination, disability glare, skip glare, spectator lighting uniformity, color temperature, camera f-stops, camera flicker and in particular super slow motion pictures. Lighting Designer Giulio Antonutto of Arup will give examples of quality lighting conditions provided for broadcasters at major sporting venues and outline proposals to provide a generic set of guidelines which could be used by designers to achieve a successful HDTV lighting scheme for the broadcast of televised sports pictures.
