LEDs light up the Pru

Lighting design firm Available Light collaborated with Philips Color Kinetics on the design, integration and programming that led to the installation of over 25 ColorReach Powercore high-performance LED floodlights on the crown of Boston's Prudential Center. These architectural floodlights are capable of natively generating millions of colors without the need for gels or filters. Philips says the color scheme can be changed on the fly to support local events, whether to cheer on a local sports team, celebrate holidays, or reflect the brand colors of individual organizations to promote their events.

Says Jeff Cassis, CEO of Philips Color Kinetics, "This installation further demonstrates that LED lighting is a viable and energy-efficient solution for architectural floodlighting, providing vibrant color while eliminating maintenance concerns. We're proud to add such a prestigious landmark to our long list of installations."

ColorReach LED floodlights are packaged as modules that each have an output of over 5,000 lumens. The aluminum housing is 20.5 x 28.9 x 4.8 in and each module draws 290 W maximum at full output, steady state.
