CUSTOMISED lighting has been installed in a Danish psychiatric hospital in a bid to cut aggressive behaviour and conflicts between patients and staff. The sophisticated dynamic circadian lighting system is now operational at the Esbjerg Psychiatric Hospital, 200 kilometres west of Copenhagen.

Solid-state lighting can hit a higher note in 2018

Solid-state lighting is an industry in transition. If you’ve read enough of our content and attended any of the LED & Lighting Network conferences and events over the past couple of years, you know that we have compiled plenty of evidence that, although LEDs were already considered a disruptive technology at the outset, the disruption didn’t end once their performance and ability to be applied in different ways evolved.

Global Smart Urban Lighting Study Launched

The study will examine how municipalities worldwide understand intelligent lighting and implement development strategies and governance policies.

Is 3-D printing the next frontier for the LED lighting industry?

Although LED lighting has become a mature technology, a new technology is quickly rising as a potential benefit to the LED and SSL industries. Additive manufacturing is the fabrication of a 3D object by depositing a polymer-based material using print heads, nozzles, or other material deposition or solidification processes using a layer by layer approach with digital information from a computer-aided design (CAD) model.

The secret to designing stadiums for 4K/ultra-high definition (UHD) broadcasting and energy efficiency

With the LED lighting technology available today, stadiums can support 4K UHD broadcasts and operate with greater energy efficiency, trimming lighting costs tremendously. The secret is selecting stadium lighting that provides the quality of light required by those 4K UHD cameras.
