About the Event

Join IESNYC for Mixed Signals: Animating Lighting with Different Protocols.

Mesh networks like Zigbee are a fast-growing option for controlling lighting. While the use of mesh networks for standard architectural applications is well documented, what is the impact on a façade, LED wall or color changing cove when a mesh network is used to trigger a lighting effect? We will compare mesh networks with traditional controls protocols like DMX and DALI. We will look at linear and non-linear dispersion of lighting cues, and the effect this can have on an animated façade. A live demonstration will be displayed and discussed.
