“Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” Shines at 2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival Opening

“Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” was the most eye-catching lantern display at today’s official opening of the 2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival. Considered the world’s biggest lantern, the “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” is a 10m tall, 70m wide and 270° circular, high-resolution structure where visitors can enjoy two films: “Sun and Moon”” and “Four Seasons”. Based on the overall design concept of “Everlasting” the giant lantern encourages the public to protect our environment, save energy, and pursue sustainability for the benefit of mankind. Featuring an exciting LED light show, the giant display is a visual treat for visitors to the festival. In attendance at the grand opening ceremony were Mr. Chiu Ching Chun, the Hsinchu County Magistrate, Mr. Bruce Cheng, Founder and Honorary Chairman of Delta Electronics, Ms. Diane Ying, Founder and Chairman of Commonwealth Magazine and Mr. Dong Yang Zi, the renowned calligrapher.


 

Delta’s Founder and Honorary Chairman Mr. Bruce Cheng said, “The Lantern Festival is an important Chinese tradition. If we can celebrate it in a low carbon and energy-saving way, it will be a wonderful thing. Our lantern, “Delta’s Ring of Celestial Bliss” conveys the concept of “Everlasting”. It is the first time we have presented Delta’s company values and mission by combining technology, culture and the message of sustainability. “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” provides both family entertainment as well as environmental education.”


 

Mr. Chiu Ching Chun, Hsinchu County Magistrate emphasized, “Delta Electronics is truly a leading light of Taiwan. This year is the first time we have broken away from conventional Taiwan Lantern Festival themes and incorporated such extensive multimedia using Delta’s world-renowned, advanced technologies. A seamless integration of the humanities and technology, it has added a new luster to the 2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival.”

Delta’s recent achievements in projection blending and 3D building façade projection technology provide a total system integration solution. “Delta’s Ring of Celestial Bliss” represents Delta’s solutions and branding as it combines hardware technology and software capabilities. It is also an outstanding example of developing technology in a sustainable way.

“Deltas’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” is a 10m tall, 70m wide, 270° circular structure that offers amazing visual effects from different angles. As visitors enter the low carbon area where the ring is located, they will be treated to Mr. Dong Yang Zi’s calligraphy masterpiece “Heng (Everlasting)”. This is based on Heng Gua in the I Ching (Book of Changes), where “The Sun and the Moon follow the Tao of Nature; thus their shining is everlasting. The seasons of the Earth change and transform in rhythm; thus its ability to nurture and produce long endures.” Delta Electronics’ desire is to achieve sustainable development through education. The pillar of Heng is also the best location for visitors to take photographs of the giant lantern structure and capture beautiful memories of “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss”.

The best place to view “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” is the high platform on the left mound of the structure. The story of the “Sun and Moon” film is from Delta’s Founder Bruce Cheng’s biography “The Power of Integrity”. Delta’s CEO Mr. Ping Cheng narrates the film to better communicate Delta’s ideas on sustainability. Visitors can enjoy the two films which show stellar formations of the universe, the rotations of the sun and the moon, the origins of life, and the achievements of ancient human civilizations. Mankind continues to make knowledge and technology breakthroughs, but as we have elevated our standards of living, we have damaged Mother Earth, and it has caused extreme weather conditions and environmental degradation. In the film we remind the public to protect the environment, save energy, and cherish our green Earth.

“Four Seasons” film contains excerpts from the “Taiwan Beautiful, All Seasons” film produced by Commonwealth Magazine. It captures beautiful Taiwanese sights such as seas of clouds on mountain tops, aerial shots of paddy fields, a tranquil morning fog at Sun Moon Lake, delicious, yellow Hsinchu persimmons, and more. Visitors can enjoy these sights from the giant lantern’s nautilus center. “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” is made up of 15 hidden Delta Electronics high-resolution, video-conferencing projectors, and 3-module DLP high-level projection system. The highest luminance can reach 30,000 lumens, and an overall resolution of more than 12 million pixels, which is much higher than the cinema projection standards of the US Digital Picture Association. It is so detailed that even the trails of spider webs on a day lily can clearly be seen.

Not only are the films interesting, the lantern structure itself is also outstanding. The “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” is located in a park, and it integrates concepts of advanced Taiwan technology in a triangular structure, while the rounded inner structure represents bliss of attaining ideals. Hsinchu was known as “Zhu Jian” (bamboo) in the past, and “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” reflects the local culture. Besides using steel to build the structure’s main frame, the exterior façade is made with bamboo while the inner projection screen is made with recycled materials. The permeable floor is also made with bamboo so that after the exhibition, the structure can be naturally broken down by the environment. Not only does the structure express local characteristics, its innovative design and environment-friendly building materials reduce the amount of resources spent on transporting the materials.

The concepts Delta Electronics wishes to showcase with its “Ring of Celestial Bliss” lantern are “Good Will to Mankind” and the “Everlasting Circle of Life” which teach respect for Mother Nature and encourage challenging the future. Through its unique steel mainframe design, the entire “ring” appears to float under the night sky, which was made possible by precise mechanical calculations that will amaze visitors at the technical achievement. The outer wall of the structure uses 155 Delta Electronics LED wash wall lamps that are installed along the lower outer steel structure. It also boasts Makino Bamboo that will wash the light up from bottom to the top, adding dynamic life force to the overall structure. The outer wall also has LED line lamps that will create beautiful visuals of the four seasons. Inside the structure, visitors can see short column lanterns which have cast tree lights. The tree lights add more luminance to this already low carbon footprint, energy-saving showcase. The success of LED lighting depends on optics technology, energy, and heat dissipation. Delta Electronics has leveraged its core technologies for high performance, high quality LED lighting products. The LED wash wall light projection distance is more than six meters, and not only is it able to project rich, layered lighting effects, it also saves more than 80% energy as compared to traditional lumens lamps.

The “Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss” was designed by J.J. Pan and Partners, Architects and Planners. A representative from the design firm said, “You can often see large-scale projection at international exhibitions and iMax cinemas. However, the ‘Ring of Celestial Bliss’ is an outdoor, large-scale projection image where the projection screen is shaped like irregular wave with an upper front and lower back. This posed a huge challenge for the Delta Electronics video-conferencing team. After completion the entire structure was quite amazing and it will definitely impress visitors. Plus the fact that the entire structure was built using green building concepts—it is definitely a world’s first”.

Professor Lin Sian De from National Cheng Kung University added, “The Delta Electronics’ Ring of Celestial Bliss is Taiwan’s first sustainable building to have undergone a carbon auditing. Not only is it environment-friendly, but it is an art masterpiece—a “Tiffany lamp” under the Taiwan night sky.”

“Delta Electronics Ring of Celestial Bliss” is one of this year’s main highlights in the global celebration of Chinese New Year. It is also a successful showcase of Delta Electronics’ values and company vision. The giant lantern incorporates technology, culture and sustainable development to promote benefits for mankind. Plus it is a fun activity for the entire family as well as an excellent teaching opportunity for environmental protection. The 2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival will start on February 24th, 2013 and end on March 10th, 2013. “Delta Electronics Ring of Celestial Bliss” is located beside the Hsinchu County Chupei City High-Speed Rail Station in the low carbon footprint, green energy lantern area. We welcome the public to visit.
