Baku. Ulkar Gasimova – APA. Telenor Arena of Oslo is being prepared for the 55th Eurovision Song Contest. APA reports quoting the official website of the contest that over 500 crew members are involved in the build-up process at the Telenor Arena, which started two weeks ago. Some of them did a great job practising the flash mob dance for this year’s contest. 532 moving lights and 4,179 fixed light elements are being installed right now at the Telenor Arena, 1,852 being so-called colourblocks that have been installed to involve the audience in the hall with whatever happens on stage. 4,528 metres of truss has been used to build the entire light rig.
21 cameras will be used to bring the Eurovision Song Contest to your TV set or computer screen. As many as 8 satelliprate channels will be used simultaneously to receive picture and sound from the 39 spokespersons across Europe. To assure a smooth production, 250 handheld radios will be used by the production crew.
