The right lighting 

Each day when students pass from building to building at Gateway Community College, they are treated to photos of their classmates, professors, and administrators on a 11 x 11 meter low-resolution LED video screen. This piece of lighting art, appropriately named "College Faces," is a slow-motion movie that transitions every thirty seconds between photos retrieved from smartphones or a website.


LED lighting solution was chosen to bring this concept to life. Philips Color Kinetics iColor Flex LMX, strands of full-color LED nodes, were positioned 95 mm in apart on a custom-made frame by RGB Lights, Inc. placed in the atrium space connecting the campus buildings.


Cameron McNall, principal at Electroland and lighting designer for the project, was satisfied that he chose a Philips Color Kinetics solution. McNall said the "wide product line [offered by Philips Color Kinetics] allowed us to find a product that most clearly matched our needs, and they offered invaluable technical support."
