Winnipeg, August 2016
Proudly presenting their latest LED innovation, Saco commissioned us to create a series of subtle animations for their new installation in Winnipeg.
The Centrepoint Hargrave Parkade exterior was to be lined with strips of LED. This decorative face was designed and built for Nova-Con Project Ltd.
Selected to work with leading architects Stantec, with the participation of MCW/AGE Consulting Professional Engineers and Integra Agency Ltd. SACO transformed their initial design into a reality by using its innovative V-Stick LED Video Light fixtures from its new Shockwave architectural video lighting series.
The original intent put forward by Stantec was to create the representation of trailing car lights captured in a long exposure photograph.
SACO’s CORE Video Processor and LightVibe content player delivers mapping of the project and content. The entire system is controlled by SACO’s high speed video communication technology and is controlled at a 25mm pixel pitch thus allowing for smooth and elegant high-res lighting movement effects and colors.
“Our goal is to make our technology and products easy to use and available to a larger audience; even a parking structure can become beautiful all on a reasonable budget.” says Yanick Fournier, VP Sales of SACO.
The completed facade is a visually iconic asset to the streets of Winnipeg.
