Shine Marathon Battersea Power Station


Shine on a


Marathon!


From Belgium to Battersea, Blueprint brings the best out of SGM’s Innovative LED.


Shine — Cancer Research UK’s Full and Half Marathon event through the city of London, now in its fourth year, began at Battersea Power Station. This night-time walk passes through a number of iconic buildings including the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament, to name just a few. Chris Morgan Blueprint Events’ based in Bristol, brought the Power Station to light by using six SGM P-5 LED floods. They also used some of their 2-metre LT-200 3D pixel tubes to create a stunning tunnel. They purchased 250 LT-200s and 84 SGM ILD Drivers to complement their investment in SGM’s LB-100 balls. These were immediately cross hired to Sonoss, as part of a complement of 3,300 LT-200 pixel tubes for a revolutionary immersive design


in the electro tent at the Pukkelpop Festival. Chris Morgan explained, “We were looking to find an exciting visual experience to welcome the 16,000 people back from their fantastic achievement. The tubes, with their external IP rating and minimal size, provided the perfect way to produce a vibrant and vivid effect whilst appearing almost invisible when not illuminated. This gave the impression of the light floating in space, and fitted our brief perfectly.” They suspended the tubes on a framework to allow participants to see inside and out as they moved through the finishing line and down the tunnel towards the recovery area.


The P-5’s were relocated to one of the significant ‘pit stops’ around the city to drawing attention to The London Research


Institute. Morgan said, “The magnificent output of these units, combined with their compact size and power efficiency, allowed them to be deployed reliable and quickly. With a very short time span to set up each pit stop, speed was of the essence, and the P-5 was the perfect choice for this building.”
