Presented by Ann C. Laidlaw, X-Rite Inc.
Light sources are changing. Regulations around the world are driving improved energy efficiency, technological developments result in more choices, and businesses respond to on-going pressure to reduce operating costs. In the past, the choice of commercial lighting technologies was mostly limited to incandescent bulbs, CWF-style fluorescent tubes, tri-phosphor fluorescent tubes, and various forms of natural or simulated daylight. Today, residential and commercial customers have far more choices, with additional technologies becoming commercially viable in the near future. This presentation will review various current and emerging lighting technologies, our methods for assessing them, and the practical implications of using the technologies to view colored objects.
