Hear about opportunities and challenges on color tuning fixtures. Luminaire manufacturers are challenged with economically providing luminaire solutions that can color tune while maintaining the strictest requirements for color quality, cost, energy efficiency, color constancy and more. Discussions will include the pros and cons of the most commonly available phosphor converted sources (BSY, BSA, etc.), as well as color tuning lighting fixtures in various spaces (commercial offices, buildings, retirement communities, etc.).
- Overview of the current market and utilization of color shifting in LED lighting project. Evaluate the limitations of existing color tunable luminaire technologies.
- Understand the value and benefits of integrating LED luminaires into the building management and automation space.
- Explore the color gamut makeups necessary to enable efficient and high-quality illumination along with providing highly discernible colors for location identification, emergency egress, etc.
- Describe the necessary improvements to phosphor converted sources that will allow luminaire manufacturers to provide color tunable solutions that maintain the required color metrics over the life of the installation.
