Championship Performance: Cameo Illuminates FIBA 3×3 Basketball World Cup 2022 in Antwerp

From 21 to 26 June 2022, 20 teams competed in the Crelan FIBA 3×3 World Cup in front of a capacity crowd in the famous Groenplaats square in Antwerp, Belgium. Serbia won its fifth world championship title in the men’s final, while France prevailed against Canada in the women’s finals. To make it camera-friendly, the urban sporting event was illuminated by Cameo F4 D Fresnel spotlights and Cameo ZENIT® outdoor LED wash lights.

Camera-Friendly Lighting Quality

The S2 Group and its companies S2 Pro and S2 Rent were responsible for lighting. The challenge was to illuminate the 19 x 15 metre court with approx. 1,000–1,500 lx at a colour temperature of 5,600 K and a CRI value >90 in a consistent, camera-friendly and shadow-free manner.

The event specialists from the S2 Group were supported by Darius Ansari (Adam Hall Field Application Engineer Light Technology), whose precise lighting calculations were a deciding factor in finding the perfect spotlights for the task at hand:

“In an initial calculation, it quickly became apparent that this was the perfect job for the Cameo F4 D, which performs impressively thanks to its high luminosity, a CRI value of over 90 and the desired cool white colour temperature. The following photometric simulations were then created using these parameters.”

The spotlights were rigged in a truss circle with a diameter of 33 metres along a Magic Sky canopy system at a height of 7.5 metres, where they could be easily positioned without impeding the event-specific ball throwing safety.

The decision was made to use 32 x Cameo F4 D Fresnel spotlights for the court lighting and 32 x Cameo ZENIT® W600 outdoor LED wash lights for the indirect dynamic lighting of the Magic Sky canopy in line with the corporate identity colours of the event and its sponsors. The court lighting met TV and photo standards of at least 1,500 lux vertically with an even distribution on the main court without any shadows or spots.

“The required minimum of 1,500 lux was easily achieved, and on average even exceeded at up to 2,500 lux.”
