A.C. Lighting Ltd. increases turnover by 6%

A.C. Lighting Ltd has reported it has sustained its 6% growth as of its interim figures of May 2002.

A.C. Lighting’s considerable investment in facilities, systems, and infrastructure has resulted in a more streamlined organisation, improved customer experience, and international business development. The recently formed A.C. Limited (Canada) Ltd is clearly indicative of plans to gain a more international presence and market share.

Managing Director and co-founder of A.C. Lighting, David Leggett, commented, “2002 was a tough year in the entertainment technology industry. Despite these troubled times, our company’s growth is proof of our staff’s diligence coupled with the loyalty and support received from manufacturers and customers alike. It is this combination which has led to our strengthened position.”

A.C. Lighting Suspends Infra Red Imaging System

A.C. Lighting’s Northern Division has recently completed a project installation for The University of Leeds Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences Department (ULISES).

The department of sport and exercise sciences approached A.C. Lighting to develop a solution to rig and manually adjust the position of high speed motion tracking cameras in their Sports Biomechanics Laboratory.

The Infra Red cameras are used to assess the movement and performance of athletes under controlled laboratory conditions in both research and teaching. Activities routinely investigated include: rock climbers (the laboratory features an adjustable indoor climbing wall); runners, and various throwers and kickers, with a heavy duty net designed to catch missiles.

A moving camera grid, constructed from a series of 48mm aluminium tubes was assembled, featuring adjustable and fixed drop arms, Doughty barrel trolleys, and Manfrotto camera brackets.

A significant benefit of this bespoke system is that floor space is maximised for experiments, whilst addressing the problem of being able to position cameras anywhere in the laboratory.

Dr Messenger, Biomechanics Lecturer of ULISES commented:

“The rig allows us a high degree of flexibility in camera placement without the encumbrance of bulky tripods. Once optimum camera positions have been set for a specific experiment they can be left in situ for longer, and increase efficiency of both the space and equipment usage.”
