Animated Lighting

Hard Rock Café

The Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas needed a new sign to go above their store on the Las Vegas strip and they knew it couldn't be anything ordinary. They contracted with Kojis Sign of Louisiana and Kojis Sign called in Animated Lighting to add the WOW to the project.

Kojis Sign created CAD drawings and forwarded the design to Animated Lighting to figure out the internal lighting and power requirements. Next, Kojis created a Flash animation of the sign in simulated operation and Animated Lighting created the custom programming to make the real sign act exactly like the proposed animation.

Kojis used Animated Lighting’s DMX controllers to direct the Xenon-BRIK-32 Strobe Controller that switched the pro-grade strobe lights mounted at the top and bottom of each sign letter. Animated Lighting DIO/Relay boards were used to sequence the horizontal LED strips emulating old fashioned red neon. Animated Lighting four channel controllers were used to switch the power supplies for the real neon tubes that outline each letter.
