The Aspire (Torch) Tower, Doha
The exterior lighting of the 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 4000 high-power LED pixels. The lighting concept, designed by KSLD, required individual pixel control to achieve video style animations across the building facade.
ALI handled the controls system, using Colour-Tramp and Art-Net data distribution. Extensive use was made of high bandwidth fibre optic data transmission due to the size of the building. We also supplied the 12,000 channels of LED dimming required to control the pixels, using custom build technology.
