A casino

 

(Las Vegas, United States) Las Vegas is very famous for its entertainment and gambling industry. There are many casinos in the city, which attract numerous visitors from all over the world. Generally the casinos are open for almost 24 hours per day and the city is absolutely a sleepless town. Therefore the casinos cost much to pay electricity bills while the lighting may be not attractive enough to those visitors. Is there a type of lighting which can not only save energy bills and emit brighter light, but also create fantastic lighting effects to attract more visitors? Our case is about a casino in Las Vegas, United States. It opens for 24 hours per day and used conventional light source which consumes much power and can not create colorful lighting effects. The owner of the saloon considered to switch conventional light source into more energy efficient lighting which can emit light with various colors. Which type of lighting features these advantages? The answer is definitely LED lighting. Then the casino decided to employ LED lighting to replace some conventional lights.

 

As the owner considered possible LED lighting options to replace the existing lights, he developed a set of requirements for any potential solution. He wanted a solution that would meet or exceed the light output and light quality of the existing lights and they wanted a solution that could be easily installed.
