Lighting for boxing (big hall with auditorium)

Figure 1.113: Example for boxing ring lighting at high competition level with 32 special-direction floodlights LED 230 W, 24.000 lm, Ē = 2.100 lx

Boxing means speed, focus and attention as well as high-impact movement in the ring. Horizontal illuminance as well as excellent uniformity are intended to support the athletes. For national and international competitions, a minimum maintained value of 2.000 lx is required. Vertical illuminance – at least 50% of horizontal values – is intended for referees, coaches and spectators. Television requires up to 1.400 lx (group C) according to recording distance. Excellent colour rendering is important for experiencing the sports event as well as for film and television recordings.
