UK – Illumination specialists LED Creative are pleased to have provided their Alpha 60 RGB led system as part of the recent upgrade to the prestigious SKY Sports Studios at the broadcaster’s West London Headquarters.

Working closely with scenic designer Peter Aston for Jago Design, LED Creative’s project manager Ges Smith and on site team leader Tony Mayor assisted in the successful deployment of the company’s Alpha RGB, which has been used extensively throughout the re-launched Studios One, Two and Three.

Featuring the work of lighting directors Richard Bowles, Andrew Louca and Malcom Reed, all three studios have a highly polished, smart, modern feel which can be easily adapted to a suit a broad variety of moods. The end result is a suite of flexible spaces that can be tailored to reflect the nature of the broadcast content. Studio One the largest of the three is the all important football hub, Studio Two with its decidedly ‘green theme’ is used by SKY Golf and Studio Three is an easily configurable multi-purpose interview and featured sport space.

The LC Alpha range of high density ultra-flex delivers precise, even, fully controllable illumination from a super flexible lightweight strip. Cool running and drawing only 14.4W per metre, Alpha 60 is an ideal low energy LED flex solution – flexible, adaptable and simple to use.

The clever inclusion of the versatile Alpha 60 as a key element within the installation allows discreet, seamless transitions in both colour and intensity. The designer lines, clearly defined edges and subtle highlights of the set pieces perfectly complement the stylish look of the studio’s overall design.

Speaking about the project, LED Creative’s Ges Smith said: “Peter has applied our Alpha 60 across his designs to add some fantastic detail to the each of the studio sets. It’s great to see the system being used in such creative ways, not just to add light and colour, but as a key part of the installation.”
