New flicker-free Altis floodlight perfect for super slow motion sports TV
Designed for super slow motion sports TV, the new Altis high performance discharge floodlight from Thorn Lighting is now available with a guaranteed "flicker-free" system. Altis is now compatible with electronic gear to eliminate the flicker effect. Combined with its patented high performance optic, Altis now meets all the requirements of international high definition sports television broadcasting.
Thomas Langle, Product Manager at Thorn Lighting says: "The rapid development of camera technology has raised the expectations of TV viewers during coverage of major sporting events. It has also highlighted some new specifications, particularly with regards to the flicker effect, which can be witnessed during slow motion high definition replay.
"Traditionally the effect of flicker could only be minimised with a well designed electrical installation and balance of floodlights between electrical phases. However, now it can be easily eliminated by the use of electronic gear, as demonstrated by this new version of Altis."
