Osram to light up Eurovision 2017
“The past few years have been an impressive example of how lighting design can play an essential role in showcasing the songs. Effective illumination is crucial for the impact of the songs. That’s why we’re very happy to be the partner for the ESC once again,” Osram CEO Specialty Lighting Hans-Joachim Schwabe said.
The highlight of Osram’s lighting display will be more than 150 Claypaky Scenius Unico moving heads with a particularly large variety of effects. The Scenius Unico is a spotlight that features a 1400 W Osram lamp with a colour temperature of 6500 K. It features six rotating gobos and a rotating prism, and it is equipped with a sophisticated and precise framing system. It also features a system with different diffusion filters, which may be inserted gradually. It can also generate a powerful narrow beam of super concentrated light, with a minimum beam angle of only 5°.
“I really love to work with Scenius Unico because it allows me to create magnificent effects with matchless quality of light and gives me different lighting design opportunities such as spot, beam, wash and profile — all with one product,” said German lighting designer Jerry Appelt, who is responsible for lighting design for Eurovision Song Content 2017.
From 9–13 May 2017, 43 countries will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv. The first semifinal will take place on 9 May, the second on 11 May. The finalists will take the stage on 13 May.
