Smith Campus Center, Pomona College
How better to reinvigorate a dark and uninviting space than with dynamic color-changing light. Philips LED lighting proved just that
as part of a major renovation of Pomona College’s Smith Campus Center, intended to be the social hub for students.
What’s in a ColorPlay 3 Light Show
A light show is a set of digital instructions orchestrating how and when your
installation produces visual effect. Whether your light show is as simple as one
fixture displaying a single color, or as complex as dozens of fixtures each with a
unique effect or layers of effects, the goals are the same: to create mood, interest,
and impact.
ColorPlay 3 provides 24 customizable effects, including the following:

Burst
ColorPlay 3 offers multiple techniques for editing the appearance and behavior of an
effect — you can adjust basic size and shape settings, create unique color palettes,
specify transitions, and more. ColorPlay 3 provides you with the flexibility to design
light shows based on your creative vision.

Prepare for the Installation
Owner / User Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of the contractor, installer, purchaser, owner, and user to
install, maintain, and operate the iPlayer 3 controller in such a manner as to comply
with all applicable codes, state and local laws, ordinances, and regulations. Consult
with an appropriate electrical inspector to ensure compliance.
E Refer to the iPlayer 3 Installation
Instructions for specific warning and caution
statements.
Create a Lighting Design Plan and Mapping Grid
• Create a lighting design plan that specifies the appropriate location of each
Data Enabler Pro or power / data supply in relation to the fixtures, and fixtures
in relation to each other.
• On an architectural diagram or other diagram that shows the physical layout of
the installation, identify the locations of all switches, controllers, power / data
supplies, leader and jumper cables, and fixtures.
•Select a convenient but unobtrusive location for mounting the iPlayer 3 that will
be accessible to a computer via USB connection. If also installing external show
selection switches such as Controller Keypad or AuxBox, mount the iPlayer 3 in
a location accessible to the maximum serial cable length of 50 ft (15.2 m).
E Controller Keypad and AuxBox are
packaged with a standard 20 ft (6.1 m)
serial cable. Custom serial cable lengths up
to 50 ft (15.2 m) are supported.
•Verify that the iPlayer 3 mounting location meets environmental specifications for
operating temperature range and maximum relative humidity (see page 4).
• Each Philips fixture comes pre-programmed with a unique serial number. As
you unpack the fixtures, record the serial numbers in a mapping grid (typically a
spreadsheet or list) for easy referencing and addressing. You can address fixtures
using an addressing tool, such as iPlayer 3 itself, or in conjunction with a software
tool, such as QuickPlay Pro.
•Assign each fixture to a position in the lighting design plan.
Start the Installation
1. Install all data enablers or power supplies and fixtures, including any interfaces
with controllers. If your installation calls for jumper cables to add space between
fixtures, make sure they are available.
2. If necessary, address your fixtures using an addressing tool, such as QuickPlay Pro.
3. Ensure that all additional parts, including mounting hardware and tools,
are available.

simultaneously.
Chasing — Creates bars of repeated color
moving or “chasing” each other in one
direction across a grid of fixtures or nodes.
Chasing Node — Displays bands of color
that appear to move or “chase” each other
in sequence. Colors appear to chase each
other from fixture to fixture or node to
node.
Sweep — Displays a progressive transition
of one or more foreground colors across a
solid background color in a sweeping motion
across a grid of nodes or fixtures.
Sweep Node — Displays a progressive
transition of one or more foreground colors
across a solid background color. Foreground
colors transition from fixture to fixture or
node to node.
Sparkle — Flashes one or more foreground
colors at random intervals over a solid-color
background, producing a sparkling effect.
Streak — One or more narrow bands of
color move across a solid background,
following the group’s currently selected node
pattern.
Spiral — Produces arcs of color originating

Creating a Light Show with ColorPlay 3
1. Map Fixtures
Each ColorPlay 3 show begins as a virtual map of light fixtures. To start designing
your show, you must plot, or map, fixtures on a grid. The map represents your
installation and enables ColorPlay 3 to send instructions to the iPlayer 3 operating
your lights.
2. Arrange Groups
Next, you must arrange the mapped fixtures into groups. Groups coordinate
the show, enabling you to rapidly select and move multiple fixtures, change node
ordering to match your installation, and assign effects across multiple fixtures
simultaneously.
3. Create Effects
After arranging groups, you can begin assigning effects. Each effect possesses editable
properties, including color palettes, start time, timeline duration, and more. Note
that effects are applied to groups; to assign an effect to a fixture, that fixture must be
part of a group. Note also that you can assign more than one effect to each group.
4. Simulate and Test Your Light Show
Next, you simulate and refine your show with the timeline editor. The timeline
editor contains multiple tracks, or rows, which enable you to quickly adjust effect
properties, modify effect transitions, and manage multiple effects applied to the same
group. The timeline editor contains the playback controls used for previewing your
show on-screen or running your show live on installation fixtures.
5. Download Shows to the iPlayer 3 and Create Triggers
The final step in creating a ColorPlay 3 project has two stages: first you download
your show files to an iPlayer 3 and then you configure your show playback
instructions by creating triggers.
