Elation Dynamic Lighting for Fredericia Sportscenter Swimming Pool

Light and water have always made for an excellent mix; dynamic light and water even more so. At Fredericia Sportscenter in central Denmark, Elation’s high-powered ELAR EXTQW Flood HP LED Par fixture is being used to color wash the facility’s 50-meter-long swimming pool in a variety of color looks from every-day white light to colorful dynamic mood lighting. Twenty-four of the IP65-rated fixtures, supplied by SoundstoreXL.com, work from beneath the water line behind small windows on the sides of the pool.

Fredericia Sportscenter is a multi-use facility that serves sport, culture and the business community with an assortment of activities in the heart of Denmark. With sports halls, stadium, training areas, meeting rooms, bowling alley, café and more, the Sportscenter’s recently upgraded swimming pool area is one of the more popular attractions.

A unique feature of the pool, and one that allows for flexible use, is the basin itself which can be divided into three smaller sections. The middle section for example can be raised and lowered for underwater spinning classes while also providing easy access for disabled swimmers. The ELAR EXTQW Flood HP fixture’s quad color RGBW color mixing gives the possibility to color the pool in a uniform look or shade each section individually.

In close dialog with Fredericia Sportscenter staff, SoundstoreXL.com programmed several shows using Elation’s PC-based Emulation Pro lighting control software and run the shows via an Elation DR-Pro DMX recorder, which allows for simple recording and playback of up to 5 hours of lightshows. With the touch of a button in the control center, personnel can choose between smooth, homogeneous looks for everyday use, including powerful white light, slow fades for evening mood lighting, or several high-energy lighting shows for training.

The ELAR EXTQW is ideal for indoor or outdoor installations and includes outdoor-rated power and data cables, is power/data linkable and comes equipped with an internal power supply.
