After decades of debate and living with limitation, new color metrics for both color rendition and chromaticity have been standardized by the IES and/or CIE. While the science has advanced, the practice has been slower to evolve. This webinar will look at recent developments and how they might change lighting practice over the next 10 years. It will demonstrate how all constituents in the lighting community can benefit from using metrics that fit the capabilities of today’s lighting technologies. Manufacturers can more effectively evaluate performance tradeoffs and communicate product performance, allowing differentiation with novel products; specifiers can reduce uncertainty and avoid unsightly consequences; and researchers can use improved methods to investigate fundamental lighting science challenges. Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
