Twelve Philips CK Reach PowerCore Generation 2 LED floodlights (Six in Zambia and Six in Zimbabwe) were positioned on either side of the bridge. The RGB controller and DMX Wireless emitter are positioned on the Zimbabwe side of the bridge and all information is communicated digitally across the gorge to a DMX wi-fi receiver that communicates with the floodlights.
The LED floodlights each consume only 290 watts of power yet they are able to throw the light up to 665 feet (202.7 meters) producing colour palate of 18,5 million colours. These lights consume 60% less energy than the 800w High Pressure Sodium lamps which traditionally illuminated a portion of the Zimbabwean side of the bridge base.
It has been calculated that the total solution will cost approximately less than $2.50 per day to run but will bring about tremendous tourism benefits.
