Nova TV Croatia shines new Lites

Croatian commercial network Nova TV recently re-equipped its news studios for HD, and as part of the process have installed LED lights by Litepanels for news programme Dnevnik Nove TV.

The news show has been filmed in HD since 2010. "We knew that with this switch, we would have to source lighting equipment of a higher quality than the traditional halogen fixtures we had been using previously," explained Miljenko Logozar, technical director at Nova TV.

Nova TV hired AVC Zagreb for the light planning and the installation of the new lighting system. The requirements were clearly defined: high energy efficiency and low heat development. The solution: AVC Zagreb, specialist for integration and installation of audio and video systems, equipped the 750 m² Nova TV news studio with LED lights from Litepanels.

They decided to use 13 1×1 Spot production lights, eight 1×1 Low-Profile Flood, two 1×1 Super-Spot as well as one Bi-Focus Spot and Bi-Focus Flood each. Furthermore, two MiniPlus fixtures were installed. Now the studio no longer has to worry about the intense heating of the news-desk area caused by standard halogen studio lighting, which used to interfere with the news presenters’ work.

"Moreover, the lights are of high-quality workmanship, provide an absolutely flicker-free light and are environmentally friendly," said Alen Lustica, head of the AVC Broadcasting and Telecommunications department, explaining why he decided to use the award-winning Litepanels LED technology. Mario Kralj, head of technical engineering at Nova TV is quick to add his praise for Litepanels. “Since we started using the Litepanels fixtures it’s like our worries and troubles have just disappeared”, he said. “Before, we needed to check our studio lights every day before transmission and then calibrate our cameras. Now, we just flick the switch and go!”
