We are please to announce this upcoming webinar by Roland L. Connelly, Sr., with RoLyn Group.
Many retailers have adopted LED lighting for their stores, and many of them have different characteristics. The CIE has adopted a number of "typical" LED spectra that hopefully represents the majority of types of LED's that retail, brands and industry are currently using. Using both current methods, such as CRI and CCT as well as newer TM30-18 as well as several other metrics, the variability among all these different LED's is analyzed. This all relates to the ability of retailers and their worldwide supply chains to effectively communicate about color both visually and instrumentally.
