The New LED Lighting System of the Empire State Building
Homeowners aren’t the only ones making the transition from traditional light bulbs to LEDs, so is the World’s Most Famous Office Building the Empire State Building. Through a partnership with the world’s leader in lighting, Philips Color Kinetic, the Empire State Building’s facade will soon feature a state-of-the-art art lighting system comprised of innovative LED bulbs as a part of its 21st century renovation.
The new system, which is completely unique to the Empire State Building, will highlight its architectural details and allow the building’s facade and mast to change lighting scenes in real-time and be seen from anywhere in New York City. It will also help provide better automation management and better control over the various sets of lights that celebrate multiple causes and cultures in the world, countries, holidays, key milestones, events, and charitable organizations. Once the system is completed in September its palette will include over 16 million colors that will be able to be displayed in an unlimited amount of combinations.
