New York City’s landmark landmark, the Empire State Building, will celebrate its 76th birthday on May 1. The tallest building in New York City after the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center is studying changing the spotlight from the existing searchlights. For the automatic control of the LED (LED), there are currently two manufacturers competing, who can win the bid, the answer will be announced at the end of this year.
The spotlight on the top of the Empire State Building has always been a big night scene in New York City. The color of the spotlight will change with time and events, making it a major feature of the Empire State Building. For example, in the Chinese Lunar New Year in February, the top floor is golden and red. Last year's anniversary, the spotlight at the top of the building showed an all-white light show.
The Spotlight Company said: The spotlight on the top of the current Empire State Building uses artificial searchlights. It takes six brawny and six hours to complete each time the lamp is replaced. If LEDs are used in the future, the lights can be changed instantly through the electronic monitoring system. Ten to fifteen energy expenditures can also avoid the high risk of staff changing lights in high buildings.
At present, two companies that are interested in competing for the top floor lighting project of the Empire State Building are LED Lighting System Solution Provider ColorKinetics and Royal Philips Electronics Co., Ltd. The competition is fierce.
The Empire State Building was built on May 1st, 1941, during the Great Depression of the United States. It took only 13 months to complete the building. The antenna of the building and the roof is up to 4, 343 meters. One hundred and two floors, once the tallest building in the United States.
After the September 11th incident in 2001 and the World Trade Center became ashes, the Empire State Building once again became the tallest building in New York City and the second tallest building in the United States after the Sears Tower in Chicago.
According to statistics, since the opening of the visit in the 30s, it has attracted more than 110 million tourists from all over the world, and is still growing at a rate of 3.5 million a year.
From next year, tourists will come to the vicinity of 34th Street in Midtown, New York City, and the spotlight on the top floor may be another new look.
