LED Lighting and The Beijing Olympic Opening Feast

For the first time ever in Olympic openings, Beijing used a technical monitoring system for program control of more than 18,000 performers through their identification codes. Light-emitting diodes (LED) were installed across the 20,000-square-meter National Stadium, better known as the Bird's Nest, to create an ideal multimedia environment, with storage cells backing up electricity supplies.

An LED screen 147 meters long and 22 meters wide was laid at the center of the ground, and about 44,000 colorful LED beads were embedded with a distance of 600 millimeters between each two. Tiny LED beads were also embedded on the costumes of performers who fan out to create a falling starry sky and a brightly-lit Bird's Nest.

There are two main applications of LED including "llumination" and "decoration" being used during the Olympic Games. However, the difference is the "proportion" it is used in the application. Besides, the "display" function of LED Lamp will be included as well.
