The Festival Park Global Village in Dubai has another attraction: Visible from afar, a large-area LED stainless steel cable network by Carl Stahl Architecture illuminates the "Wheel of the World", a 60-meter ferris wheel that marks the park from afar.
It prepares the stage for creative lighting designs, moving images, live scenes and impressions of the Emirate on the Persian Gulf. A total of 40,000 individually controllable and fully video-capable LED dots - 20,000 on each side of the wheel - ensure brilliant images with 16.5 million colors. Mounted in a grid of 240 x 208 millimeters on a support structure made of the stainless steel cable network X-TEND with an area of 1,000 square meters, the illuminated dots have integrated processors for maximum flexibility in dynamic image transitions and color changes. Thanks to the special programming of the LED dots that is possible in this way, the image in the center of the “Wheel of the World” always remains straight for the viewer and does not rotate in a circle with the running of the Ferris wheel.
