      Bats and Lighting: the latest research and best practice mitigation examples

      Arena: Tech TheatreSpeaker: Harry Fox of Clarkson Woods, Jo Ferguson of Bat Conservation Trust, Nick Smith of Nick Smith Associates
      Understanding the impact of artificial lighting on bats, given the huge uptake in LED technology, has led to a great deal of research in recent years. Hear from three professionals working across in the built environment and lighting industry with bats on the latest research findings and what can be done to avoid impacting these protected species.

      Understanding the new colour metrics

      Arena: Tech TheatreSpeaker: Janine Stampfli of UCL
      The days when CRI was sufficient to describe the colour rendering of a light source are coming to an end. Many new colour metrics have been proposed over the last two decades, but some have now been endorsed by lighting authorities. This presentation will explain what these metrics are, how they can be used and what is required for them to be adopted.

      New technologies for lighting controls – BLE Mesh and PoE explained

      Arena: Tech TheatreSpeaker: Alvaro Garcia of Fulham
      These two technologies, at least one of which we expect to have a pre-announcement demonstration of at LuxLive, are the most requested by our customers. I’d present on why they are interesting for the lighting control world, and how together Fulham sees they have a key role in the future of multi-vendor, multi-topology controls.

      The road map to ultra-high colour rendering indices

      Arena: Tech TheatreSpeaker: Xavier Denis of Nichia
      Today, color rendering index (CRI) ≥80 is commonly used in Indoor LED lighting applications and the technology trend is moving to CRI ≥90 and soon ≥95. Additionally, Outdoor LED lighting applications are expanding from street luminaires to architectural and city center lighting, requiring lower correlated color temperature (CCT) performances. In this paper, we introduce the world’s first Ultra-High CRI LED, with all R indices ≥90 and we are covering a possible technical solution to reach CRI up to 100. The paper is also giving an outlook of the continuous technology improvements of phosphor for CCT ≤3000K
