Turkey’s National Public Broadcaster Selects Litepanels(tm)

CHATSWORTH, Calif. – The Turkish Radio and Television Corporation, TRT, has selected a range of fixtures from LED lighting pioneer Litepanels(tm), for its brand new studios in the company’s Ankara headquarters. The Litepanels’ equipment was selected as part of the organization’s bid to improve efficiencies in both costs and energy savings across its multiple studios.

The two studios, home to the network’s rolling and hourly news programs, have recently been installed with 82 of Litepanels’ renowned 1×1 Mono daylight fixtures, together with range of 2×1 manual yokes, which mount two 1×1 fixtures side-by-side.

TRT has been operating out of its Ankara base for more than forty years, and transmits a wide array of international and domestic programs, from news and live sports, to popular music and magazine programs.

Litepanels’ regional partner in Turkey, Asimetrik Sound Lighting and Visual Systems, managed the TRT installation. Mehmet Sabri Erman, Asimetrik’s project manager said, “In the past TRT used traditional tungsten lighting in its studios and since the introduction of the Litepanels fixtures the organization has seen a significant reduction in its air conditioning and energy bills. The cost savings have been substantial, and TRT has also been equally impressed with the outstanding quality of light from the 1×1 fixtures.

“We received excellent feedback from Halil Parlak and Ufuk Genç, the project managers at TRT,” adds Erman. “They were very satisfied with the installation and the level of support offered.”
The Litepanels family of 1-foot square LED arrays offers a number of options with daylight, tungsten, variable colour and variable focus fixtures that output the company’s signature full spectrum white light. This revolutionary modular lighting system provides 1×1 of pure, luminous, soft, directional output and gives an unmatched level of lighting control.

The 1X1 Mono panels are used by many of the world’s biggest broadcasters and have been deemed the most versatile production light ever built. One of the many advantages the fixtures have brought to studios like TRT is that they are absolutely heat-free, so the fixture can be placed comfortably close to talent and creates an unmatched soft, wraparound light for the broadcaster.
