A&O Technology supports 30th Kaiser Trophy with Franz Beckenbauer in Bad Griesbach

Bremen, (PresseBox) - A&O Technology this year lent a full measure of brilliance to the Kaiser Trophy, a celebrity golf tournament organized annually to raise money for the Franz Beckenbauer Foundation. In all, eight FALCON CMY LED-VIDEO luminaires in front of the Erdinger mobile alpine chalet cast their beams over the course and beyond, attracting the attention even of those far from the event location. In addition to animations, the video panels of the hybrid searchlights displayed the logos of sponsors, as their xenon beams glided over the grass. The crowning moment, literally, of the light show was the appearance of a crown of light in the sky above the course - a reference, of course, not only to the event but also its patron, 'the Kaiser', Franz Beckenbauer, from whom it takes its name. The lighting design for the Kaiser Trophy 2012 was the work of Peter Heybutzki of A&O Vision.

Every year, a host of celebrities from the worlds of business, sport and the media respond to the invitation to compete for the Kaiser Trophy and demonstrate their golfing prowess into the bargain. As the Kaiser himself fired the canon and unleashed his opening drive, the 2012 event got underway with Oliver Kahn, Uli Hoeneß (FC Bayern), Schalke Boss Clemens Tönnies, Boris Becker, Franziska van Almsick, Hansi Hinterseer, Maria Höfl-Riesch and Christa Kinshofer just a few of the celebrities giving their time this year to raise money for the Franz Beckenbauer Foundation for People in Need.

Wishing to devote the proceeds of his testimonial to a worthy cause, the former captain of the German national soccer team and twice winner of the Ballon d'Or set up the foundation in Hamburg 30 years ago when his playing career came to an end, Since then, the annual golf tournament has taken over as the foundation's primary source of income. The Kaiser Trophy is organized by Franz Beckenbauer's manager and close friend Marcus Höfl. The venue this year was the Mercedes Benz Golf Course, Gutshof Penning in Rotthalmünster, and a surprise for guests attending the gala evening that concluded the event was a one-hour performance by Austrian popular music legend Udo Jürgens.

Franz Beckenbauer and wife Heidi were delighted not only with the convivial atmosphere but also with the success of this year's Kaiser Trophy, which raised some 600,00 euros for charity
