Hive Lighting Showcases Olympic-Sized Talent at 2013 World Championship Paralympic Games

We were thrilled by the opportunity to work with the IPC World Championships in Montreal; it was an honor to be involved with an incredible group of athletes at such a world class event.

Hive Lighting, located in the heart of Los Angeles, is bringing their bright, beautiful and energy-efficient plasma technology to the IPC World Championships in Montreal, Canada.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is the global organization behind the group's summer and winter world championships, first held in Berlin, Germany in 1994. The vision of the IPC, run by 200 members, is ‘to enable Paralympic athletes to achieve sporting excellence and inspire and excite the world.’

Competing athletes will be in the spotlight once again this year, with the help of innovative lighting experts from Hive Lighting. The IPC has flipped the switch on this year's games and Hive is making 2013's events brighter than ever with their low heat, energy-efficient, full spectrum lights. "We were thrilled by the opportunity to work with the IPC World Championships in Montreal; it was an honor to be involved with an incredible group of athletes at such a world class event," stated Jon Miller, Chief Product Officer / CTO of Hive Lighting.

The 2013 IPC Swimming World Championships will be held in Montreal's premiere olympic-sized pool at the Parc Jean Drapeau Aquatic Complex - a massive arena at 2,680,000 square metres - and all of the athletes' action will be lit by Hive's pioneering plasma technology. The complex, a venue to the east of Montreal, comes with a rich history for staging major international and national swimming competitions and features three recently renovated outdoor pools. A second outdoor pool will be used for training and warm-up.

Hive's high-output continuous plasma lighting rivals the brightness of traditional lighting instruments, but uses 50% to 90% less energy and brings better color quality to the live sporting event. Athletes competing in the complex's eight-lane competition pool must be illuminated perfectly for photographers, audience members, and judges. The games will be televised nationally and available for livestreaming on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Plz-wvLlT40) this week, August 12-18.
