The Webcast will focus on how on LEDs enable media integration into architecture and will be instrumental for lighting designers and SSL product developers that want to compete in the quickly accelerating world of architectural/faced projects. Inherently-controllable LEDs with dynamic color-changing capabilities can enable dynamic presentations, but also present unique challenges. The examples in the presentation will show how some such challenges have been overcome, and how LEDs can enable efficient and stunning outdoor projects. Videos of stunning internationally-recognized projects will be shown, highlighting a variety of LED products used to activate installations and engage people in the architectural environment.
