Well known as one of Kazakhstan architectural landmarks, the TV Tower in Almaty
was built between 1975 and 1983.
Located on the high slants of the Kok Tobe hills (Kok Tobe is
Kazakh for: "green hill") south-east of downtown Almaty, the tower is
staggeringly high 371.5 m ; its 114 m. metal aerial reaches 1000 meters above
sea level. Since Almaty is particularly vulnerable to earthquakes, the TV tower
was designed to withstand earthquakes up to a strength of 10 on the Richter
Following on the path of many other architectural locations in
the country, the tower has been given a touch of color changing magic make-up
which attract stares from every side of the city.
Guarding the tower with an array of some of its best known
architectural projectors, ARCHITECTURAL COLOR CHANGERS deliver, once again, the
required artistry. A selection of Kolorado, Kolorstream and Kolorjet are
employed in a circle to create the cones of light and color that reaches upwards
to the sky.
A well deserved special mention goes to the mighty KOLORJET
unit. Its overwhelming strength of power is used to extend the colors as to meet
the peak of the TV Tower in a triumph of light.
KOLORJET uses a Xenon 4000W lamp which power is enhanced by the
performance of the nickel rhodium plated reflector. An electronic zoom varies
the beam size, yet another feature for a unit already packed with technology and
with a wide range of capabilities.
