Burj Khalifa – V-Stick Led Upgrade

Burj Khalifa rises 2,722 feet and 163 stories to pierce the desert skyline.

It has previously lit up its east façade with high-resolution video capabilities for what became the Light Up 2018 New Year’s celebration. The show, viewed by more than one million people on site, earned a Guinness World Record for the largest laser light and sound show on a single building.

For the Emaar NYE 2019 show the scope was even more ambitious. The production extended through to March 2019 and set two more Guinness World Records: for the largest LED-illuminated façade, and the tallest LED-illuminated façade. The project required replacing the existing temporary system with a permanently mounted system.

The solution utilised V-Stick LED video/light fixtures that has 20 times more resolution than the previous system and extends virtually the entire height of the structure. It comprises more than 17 miles of V-Stick fixtures and boasts 1,139,144 RGB pixels.

Whether with colours, lighting effects or 3D deformation, the content was never flat to the surface and used the building’s curves and depth as its canvas.
