ELP box clever
Friday, 30 May 2003
UK - Continuing their increasing involvement with live sporting productions, Elstree Light and Power are currently providing location lighting, rigging and power services for the Four Nations Boxing Championships.

Working alongside lighting designer John King and the BBC outside broadcast team, ELP crew have recently visited various boxing venues across the UK, including Nottingham, Brentford and Cardiff.

"Each venue has its own set of challenges," explains crew chief Toby Dare. "For example the most recent venue in Cardiff was the Welsh Institute of Sport which had a restricted power supply and only two 63A sockets on the wall to run 70 channels of dimming! This meant we had to provide a whole range of practical lighting solutions for BBC Sport including lighting temporary broadcast studios, lighting the boxing ring and providing light over the audience."

ELP has a strong track-record within live sporting TV coverage including international football, Grand Prix motor racing, Four Nations rugby, tennis from Wimbledon and Queens, International cricket, world snooker and darts.
