In partnership with Solid State Lighting International, Philips designed, supplied and installed a bespoke LED lighting solution. The reliable, controllable and energy saving VAYA flood products from Philips Color Kinetics were used to provide the most cost effective colour-changing lighting solution to the Castle.
With a total of 78 LED fixtures plus data and power cables, Phase 1 of the two-phase project was completed in August 2014. The first phase included the installation of VAYA Flood MP RGB medium beam (1800 Lumen) on the Castle’s main wall and VAYA Flood LP RGB narrow beam (1000 Lumen) grazing almost 65m of the Darling Street wall, the Buuren, Leeudam and Orange bastions to create vertical patterns.
The entire lighting installation is controlled by one iPlayer 3. A variety of lighting shows loaded onto the iPlayer 3 drape this iconic landmark in the glorious eye-catching colours to highlight important events such as Cancer awareness month and AIDS month.
