Revolutionizing Museum Lighting: The Impact of LIDlight at Taiwan's National Palace Museum

The National Palace Museum, nestled in the picturesque hills of Taipei, Taiwan, stands as a testament to centuries of rich history and culture. Home to an impressive collection of over 700,000 ancient Chinese artifacts, it has long been an essential cultural institution in the region. As we approach the end of 2023, the National Palace Museum is embarking on an exciting journey of transformation. In collaboration with Delta Electronics and LIDlight, the museum is set to update its lighting system, aiming to enhance the visitor experience and bring its treasures to life in a whole new way, with a cutting-edge lighting system from Delta + LIDlight.

LIDlight A60 LED lighting in The National Palace Museum

The National Palace Museum boasts a storied history dating back to its establishment in 1925. It houses a wide array of historically significant artifacts, including rare ceramics, exquisite paintings, and valuable documents. These treasures offer a captivating glimpse into Chinese history, art, and culture. The museum's numerous exhibitions, ranging from calligraphy masterpieces to ancient bronze sculptures, have garnered international acclaim. This institution's commitment to preserving the past for future generations is truly commendable.

Revolutionary Lighting Transformation

To advance toward a more internationally prominent status, improving its lighting to breathe new life into its exhibitions becomes essential for the National Palace Museum. Flexible, high-quality lighting solutions are crucial to achieving this goal. This is where the A60 Full Spectrum LED Linear Light, combined with Delta Electronics' Bluetooth Intelligent Control, plays a pivotal role. These innovative lighting solutions offer a perfect blend for a museum of this caliber.

The A60's asymmetric lighting distribution ensures even illumination across extensive surfaces, minimizing harsh contrasts and shadows. With the customization of adjustable accessories by LIDlight, the lighting can seamlessly merge with the exhibits. The integration of LIDlight BLE Dimmer provides advanced dimming capabilities, allowing for precise control over the intensity of the lighting.

For the National Palace Museum, achieving optimal lighting distribution is critical for both horizontal cabinet lighting and vertical wall-washing. This guarantees the even, soft illumination of artworks, preserving their color and details with authenticity. Asymmetrical lighting further enhances the perception of brightness, improving visual comfort. The use of Full Spectrum LED sources (2700K-6500K) with high color rendering (CRI 97) ensures the most accurate color representation.

With the responsibility of safeguarding these priceless artifacts, the challenge arises in illuminating them through glass barriers within limited space. This underscores the pivotal role of the A60, characterized by its distinctive asymmetrical distribution design that ensures a low-glare, even illumination for a clear viewing experience. Prioritizing the faithful reproduction of artwork details, we employ low-blue light full-spectrum LEDs, fostering a comfortable viewing environment.

LIDlight integrates seamlessly with Delta's Bluetooth Intelligent Control (BIC) solution

LIDlight, a subsidiary of the Delta Electronics Group, integrates seamlessly with Delta's Bluetooth Intelligent Control (BIC) solution. BIC, based on Bluetooth Low Energy, not only enables real-time adjustments to brightness and color temperature but also aids in creating lighting atmospheres tailored to various exhibition themes. This newfound flexibility and adaptability are poised to bring a dynamic dimension to the museum's presentation, making it more engaging and immersive than ever before.

Integrating the BIC system, the implementation of Bluetooth control technology and monitoring mechanisms ensures the secure and precise transmission of artistic expression. This endeavor embodies the spirit of appropriateness for beauty and sustainability for the greater good, aligning with the museum's commitment to preserving and perpetuating cultural heritage.
