New look Premier League studio kicks off with LED Creative
As part of the recent update to the Premier League television studio, lighting specialists LED Creative partnered with JHD Designs to add decorative highlights and bespoke illuminated sculptures to the set.
Designed by US based JHD Designs, overseen by UK Set Designer John Hemsley and constructed by Scenex, the Premier League installation at IMG’s state of the art studio has been created with an industrial, modern feel featuring plenty of clean lines with intense colour used to edge the set pieces.
To create the colour blasts added to the background structures and main presentation area, LED Creative supplied their Alpha 60 RGB system, coupled with silent running BIT1200 controllers, which has been integrated throughout the design to allow complete control and instant switching across almost infinite combinations of colour and intensity.
A key design element within the studio are the ‘floating’ light sculptures built using LED Creative Omega LED Neon. The deep, controllable colouring ability and superlative flexibility of the Omega has been used to great effect to create dynamic outlines of football players throughout the backdrop.
For additional effect, Alpha 60 bi-colour white LED system featuring, tuneable between 2800K and 6500K, has been incorporated into the set allowing production to subtly alter the ambient light to mirror different broadcast times throughout the day.
Project Managing for LED Creative, Ges Smith comments “The IMG Studio facility is a fantastic environment in which to work and the team has created a really great look for the Premier League. The attention to detail is superb and our products have been used in incredibly creative ways to build colour and intensity into the set ”.
