W-DMX lights the 2010 Asian Games

Wireless Solution Sweden helped celebrate the 16th Asian Games
China - Wireless Solution Sweden helped celebrate the 16th Asian Games, which took place in Guangzhou, China, 12-27 November. The lavish, multi-media Grand Opening (complete with a fireworks spectacle) was held outside Guangzhou's main stadium for the first time at Haixinsha Island on the Pearl River and drew more than a reported 3m spectators.
The Asian Games, held every four years, are the second largest sports event in the world after the Summer Olympic Games. Guangzhou is the second Chinese city to host an Asian Games following Beijing in 1990. A record number of nearly 14,000 athletes from 45 countries and regions participated in 476 gold medal events in 42 sports.
The organizer and director of the opening ceremony, Chen Weiya explained that the ceremony was designed to include a conventional light show, a pyrotechnics display, plus a show that Chen described as a "knock your socks off" presentation including a "lightning show".
W-DMX is installed inside of the 80 Terbly 1500 Beam automated fixtures supplied by Golden Sea that were used to light up the stadium for both the opening and closing ceremonies of both the Asian Games and Asian Para Games.
Terbly fixtures, one of Wireless Solution's leading OEM manufacturers in China were used to bring what was described as 'choreographed lighting' into these ceremonies by the world's leading lighting and set designers, performing perfectly in front of visitors, dignitaries and athletes from all over the world.
"This was a big honor for us to be involved with such a prestigious sporting event in China," says Wireless Solution CEO Niclas Arvidsson, "The ceremonies won enormous praise from worldwide press and the equipment ran without fault. What more could we ask for?"
