In the middle of the night, as most of New York slept, something big and bright lit up the Manhattan skyline for just seconds _ a tightly kept secret to all but a handful of people.
The computerized LED system will cut energy consumption by more than half while delivering light and vibrancy superior to the old floodlights, which have huge timpani-drum-size lenses that had to be changed every so often, Mr. O'Donnell said.
The LED system has "16.7 million color possibilities, in digital combinations of ripples, sparkles, sweeps and strobes," says Phil O'Donnell of Burlington, Mass.-based Philips Color Kinetics, which is responsible for the system and worked with a resident lighting designer. "It's the sum of all possibilities — a huge palette."
