Healthcare to Art Museums - New strategies for applying light: integrating variable white lighting products
Limited Capacity seats available

LEDs are finally coming into their own: multiple manufacturers have created solutions using tunable white light for architectural applications. However, these solutions are as diverse as the problems they solve. In order for tunable white to be effectively applied in this wide arena of vertical markets we first need to understand the limitations and capabilities of the technologies and controls, as well as the metrics that describe them. We explore first-hand some application examples in the health-care, retail, and art industries with some award-winning lighting designers to help understand that the best fit may be not be a "one-size fits all". Or is it?

Participants will be able to apply color science to evaluate LEDs, specifically to check at what temperature module performance is quoted, check initial and maintained tolerances on color point and check color rendering properties across all 15 CIE test colors and GAI. Participants will be able to distinguish specific metrics of color relating to LEDs, including SPD plots, CRIs, color gamuts and GAIs. Participants will be able to utilize a checklist when specifying LED luminaires. Participants will be able to learn how LED’s and color relate vs. other sources.
