White Light supports Rugby World Cup

White Light has begun its role as production support on the Rugby World Cup (RWC), which began on Friday (18 September).

The production solutions provider, which acquired video and lighting technology firm Shock Solutions last year, helped build three studio and pitch-side sets for the ITV Sports team, providing the lighting and technology for each set and overseeing the logistics of the sets’ UK tour.

White Light is also providing its audio services throughout RWC, deploying around 100 loudspeakers and 50 channels of amplification for the on-site hospitality structure. The company is also providing production support for ‘Home from Home’, which sees the tunnel beneath Twickenham’s South Stand transform into an immersive experience for attendees.

The ‘Home from Home’ experience features different colour schemes for each game along with a live AV feed from the stadium above.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase the vast array of skills we have at White Light,” said director Richard Wilson. “This year has not only seen us rapidly expand our expertise but also support a huge array of unique projects. We are really excited to help make this year’s RWC a spectacle to remember.”
