The Six Day Race is one of the sporting highlights of the German capital
Germany - From 27-29 January, the 110th Six Day 2023 took place at the Velodrom in Berlin. The cycling race, also known as the Six Day Race, is one of the sporting highlights of the German capital, sending the professionals out on to an impressive 250m oval track.
This year, the lighting in the Velodrom was the responsibility of AVM Event Veranstaltungstechnik & Service, which already has years of experience with the SixDays offshoot in Bremen, north Germany. With more than 300 Cameo spotlights used in Berlin, the full-service provider relied on an impressive lighting setup.
As the cyclists do their laps at top speeds of up to 80 km/h, what is needed above all is an equally bright and homogeneous illumination of the racetrack. AVM Event entrusted this task to a total of 116 Cameo Zenit W600-D LED washlights, which, with their high-resolution dimming behaviour and barndoors, provided precise illumination limited exclusively to the racetrack.
"The Zenit W600-D made all the difference," confirms Jens Wiegandt, owner of AVM Event. "The organiser spoke of the best performance ever! For us, the ZENIT W600-D is currently the best solution for sports and trade fair events on the market." In addition, the LED washlights ensured a lower hanging load and enabled the team to also use the spotlights as blinders in the show light design.
In addition, AVM used 70 Cameo OPUS H5 beam spot wash hybrid moving heads to project gobos on to the track and create effect beams throughout the hall. The show lighting design was complemented by 24 Opus S5 Spot-Moving-Heads, among other things, to stage artistic cyclists inside the hall.
For further tasks inside and outside the hall, including the illumination of the taxi and shuttle stops, Zenit W600 LED washlights with RGBW were used. In the VIP lounge of the Velodrom, the battery-operated B200 and B60 C LSD models provided flexible and discreet ambient lighting.
AVM had a special task in mind for the Cameo OTOS H5 Hybrid Moving Heads. Placed directly on the show stage, the IP65-capable hybrid moving heads did not just have to effectively stage the show acts; they also had to withstand the champagne showers of the awards ceremonies.
