TSL Lighting supplies ‘Biggest Event in History of Esports’
The spectacular final of Riot Games’ League of Legends World Championship at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, Saw TSL Lighting working with production company Concom and lighting designers Arnold Serame of Serame Design and LeRoy Bennett of Seven Design Works to supply, deliver and man a full lighting and control system comprising more than 1,000 fixtures. Eight trucks transported the equipment from the company’s Basingstoke warehouse to the indoor arena in the French capital. Twelve grandMA3 consoles – eight full size and four light versions – controlled a rig consisting mainly of Robe BMFL WashBeam, RoboSpot, T1 Profile,MegaPointe and Pointe fixtures; Martin MAC Aura XB and Vipers; and a complementary rig of Claypaky, Vari-Lite, SGM, Chroma-Q Colorforce II and OXO Pixyline 150 battens.
More than 2,000 metres of fibre-optic cabling and 500 metres of pre-rigged truss was prepped in Basingstoke and delivered to be set up by the TSL crew. “The network was designed using components from our Luminex Gigacore system,” Sheerman continues. “On a show like this, every single component of the network is fully backed up with 100% redundancy. It’s very important for us to keep investing because it keeps us at the forefront of technology and enables top notch solutions for all of our projects.” Arnold Serame, LD for Riot Games, commented: “Work ethic and care for a standard of excellence is why I often tell others that TSL is definitely one of the best, if not the best lighting company that I’ve ever worked with. This was really extraordinary.”
