This installation was a 3-metre high 3D logo, with a video screen on its front and LED pixels covering the side surfaces. From an original concept by branding agency Landor, the pixel element of the design was achieved by The P.A. People using the following equipment:
– 4 x Pixelator Mini: the compact, 8-port version of ENTTEC’s flagship Ethernet > Pixel Link driver.
– 15 x PLink Injector (12V-24V). The Pixel Link system allows data to travel up to 300 metres on standard Cat 6 cables.
– 1950 x ENTTEC pixel dots with clear, flat diffusers, each dot being individually controllable.
Original concept: Landor
Project and lighting designer: The P.A People
