Many sports enthusiasts looked forward to December 10th 2016; it was the evening when two world-class MMA fighters  got into the ring for a highly anticipated fight. The event was held at the König Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany (capacity: 12.500 people). Ampco-Flashlight provided the sound & lighting equipment, installing 26 Sunpanels, 46 Showtec Active sunstrips and about 60 Compact Parcans. 

They had a clear goal in mind when they decided to use the Sunpanels: they wanted to add a unique look and feel to the event, something which would immediately attract a person’s attention when surfing through tv-channels. 

For this purpose the high-power, warm white LEDs, suited the occasion much better than conventional LED-screens. Also the reliability of the fixtures and the easy installation  proved to be a big advantage compared to LED-screens. The panels were controlled by pixel mapping on the Artnet protocol.
