On the 20th June, FALCON searchlights were deployed at one of the biggest boxing events of the last year, the triumph by TKO of IBF, WBO and IBO world champion Wladimir Klitschko over WBA ‘world champion in waiting’ Ruslan Chagaev. The fight was broadcast live and exclusively by RTL from the Veltins Arena of Bundesliga club Schalke 04. With 61,000 spectators in the stadium and a further ten million following the event on TV, this was one of the most watched fights in German history.

PROCON, the firm responsible for the technical equipment, contracted A&O Technology to supply fifty-two FALCON xenon searchlights for the event. To present the ring and arena in a suitably dramatic light, some thirty-two FALCON BEAM 3kW and twenty high-power FALCON 6000 CMY luminaires were flown from the trusses directly above the ring. From this position, they were able to accompany the march-in and the performance by the Swedish pop group Mando Diao with an impressive light show as well as highlighting the ring and the vast crowd. A masterly blend of FALCON searchlights and pyrotechnics was used to bring the atmosphere to boiling point as the fight got underway, and at the beginning of each round the ring was framed by powerful beams of light. The exhilarating and dynamic lighting design was the work of MLD (misch.light.design).

A&O Lighting Technology GmbH, which was founded by Marco Niedermeier, has been actively engaged in the hiring and sale of show and architectural lighting equipment since 1995. A&O's diverse inventory includes special LED equipment and several hundred searchlights (high-power xenon floodlights) that can be used for well-known entertainment- and architectural lighting applications. It also has the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to a variety of architectural luminaries and searchlights, such as the FALCON® range from alpha one. A&O Lighting Technology, with headoffice in Germany, is active worldwide with subsidiaries and bureaus in UAE, USA, UK and Asia.
