Live TV Broadcasting
Endemol relied on Stage Electrics to supply lighting for 4 seasons of Big Brother and 3 seasons of Celebrity Big Brother. Our experience in live TV broadcasting is one of the reasons Channel 4 depended on us to provide lighting for one of its most high profile shows.
For each series of Big Brother we designed a variety of stunning light displays. The most recent projection used 3 gobos and overlapping lights to create contra rotating circles which generated an illuminated BB logo onto the side of the house. The whole front of the BB house was also brightly illuminated by a row of Chromaflood 200 TC fully outdoor rated LED fixtures.
For the launch and finale shows additional moving lights were used to create more elaborate lighting displays to add to the show's excitement.
Channel 4 are safe in the knowledge that they can rely on Stage Electrics' rigorous testing to ensure that there are no technical issues on the night when the show is filmed live.
A key challenge when organising this event was that all the equipment used needed to be robust enough to sustain 16 weeks of outdoor use. Stage Electrics' vast technical expertise meant that even some equipment designed for indoor use can still be used by enclosing it within IP rated ingress protection. This means the lighting effects do not need to be compromised and displays can be sensational.
