Technical production and solutions specialist Solid Rock Event Technical provided the full technical production – lighting, sound and large format video projection – for a massive son et lumière at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, part of a special invitation two location event for the key sales teams, dealers and clients of Daimler Truck & Buses, a division of Mercedes-Benz South Africa.
24 Robe BMFL Spot moving lights were on the lighting spec for filling the 95,000 capacity venue – formally known as Soccer City – with lumens, as part of “The Greatest Show on Earth”. The performance was a complete immersive audio visual experience with high-powered projections mapped to the large pitch area supported by lights shooting around the entire building, spectacular pyrotechnics and a skydiving display team.
The BMFL Spot fixtures were chosen for the incredible brightness produced by the 1,700W light source and optimised optical system. The chosen fixture was built with stadiums and large arenas in mind. The units were positioned along the floor of each layer of tiered seating in groups of 4s, 6s and 8s.
