Color Kinetics installs low resolution LED display on Aspire Tower
The Aspire Tower in Doha, Qatar, is circled by a low resolution display made up of a mesh of LED pixels.
The installation marks the latest in a growing number of large-scale, lower-resolution video displays that are being erected as a cost-effective alternative to conventional high-resolution LED screens.
“We’ve proven that LEDs are an ideal source for many illumination applications, and now we’re increasingly targeting low-resolution video as well, based largely on the strength of our intelligent control technology,” said Bill Sims, President and CEO, Color Kinetics.
"With our Chromasic chip inside each self-contained LED node, we can produce video grids in virtually any form – which wouldn’t have been possible just a few years ago. On top of the digital intelligence, we can create very durable displays that are able to withstand harsh climates and vibration without the bulk and weight of typical high-resolution LED screens.”
Another low-resolution LED display, created by Element Labs, showed live coverage and imagery from the opening and closing ceremonies inside the stadium of the Doha games – see see Element Labs creates colossal LED display for Asian Games.
