PROLIGHTS is a keeper at Hockey Arena

The Husqvarna Garden, an Ice Hockey arena in Jönköping, Sweden and home to the HV71, has recently undertaken a lighting re-fit and PROLIGHTS hit the puck with a full range of equipment supplied to the venue.

A total of 28 units of SunBlast 3000FC, a powerful IP-rated LED strobe and blinder, plus 8 Ra 3000Profile moving profiles, with an astonishing 1,000W LED source were supplied to give a colourful wash spread to the venue and create colour chases and dynamic effects along the arena. Furthermore, 16 SunBar 2000FC, 12 Stark Blade8 moving LED blade with zoom and infinite rotation, and another 13 SunBlast 3000FC were mounted in 4 dollies that are rolled into the ice for the players’ entrance show, pre-programmed on LTC Timecode. The SunBars and SunBlasts are fed with ArtNet for pixelmapping and play video content from Hippotizer media servers.

The kit list also 3 EclPanel TWC Jr and 4 EclMiniFresnel FC, installed in the post-game interview zone.

The company responsible for the installation and commissioning was FC Production, a Swedish event services company. When asked about the use of PROLIGHTS, its founder Christoffer Carpvik said: “When we were browsing for the products to fulfil this project, we found PROLIGHTS products to be very versatile and their catalogue very broad. We collaborated with, PROLIGHTS’ distributor in Sweden, to choose the most adequate for the project.”

When asked about the features of the products, Christoffer said: “We needed to supply a very bright moving profile to project gobos with the sponsor’s logos, in a fully lit arena. We liked PROLIGHTS’ broad spectrum of efficient and sturdy built fixtures with a massive output and great colours, so we ended up doing the complete installation only with their fixtures, and it turned out great! We were particularly impressed by how even the light distribution is, and how consistent the colours are on such large distances. Both us and HV71 were delighted with the outcome and performance of the equipment, and we’re looking forward to another collaboration together with Gobo and PROLIGHTS!”
