Aspire Tower - DohaArtistic Licence Integration web site.
The exterior lighting of Aspire Tower in Doha Sports City was inaugurated at the opening of the Asian Games, 1st December 2006. The 300m tower has a skin of some 4000 high power LED pixels. Each pixel is individually controlled allowing video style animations to be played back across the building facade.
The light concept was designed by KSLD who also specified the Artistic Licence Colour-Tramp system for control. A 12,000 channel customised Colour-Tramp was used, making this the largest control installation yet! Data distribution was via Art-Net with a total of 24 Net-Lynx O/P providing DMX512 conversion. Extensive use was made of high bandwidth fibre optic data transmission due to the size of the building.
Artistic Licence also supplied the 12,000 channels of LED dimming required to control the Solar pixels. The dimmers were custom built for the project using our new Candle-Power technology.
