Live Design magazine has a great article about Vectorworks Spotlight user Christian Choi. Christian was enlisted to redesign the lighting for Saigon Entertainment Television, the local portion of the Saigon Broadcast Television Network, a 24-hour Vietnamese language channel providing news as well as arts and entertainment programming.
From the article,
In the final analysis, the design accomplished the goals for the studio, which looked so much bigger and better that SBTN asked Choi to redesign the lighting, video, and set for its national news. “It was a large project, not just because I designed all of the visual elements, but also because I engineered and built it,” he says.
Choi adds that, in the end, the SBTN SET studio’s redesign “had many positive implications—air conditioning reduction, better light quality, no lamp or color filter replacements.” Using green technology to save the studio some green and make the designers some green is a successful model for all involved.
