At ISE 2018 in Amsterdam this week, Lutron is demonstrating “two-channel lighting” for controlling color temperature and brightness separately and simultaneously — a process that can help simulate daylight from dusk til dawn.
Tunable white lighting is all the rage these days, as experts demonstrate how altering color temperature can improve productivity and focus (cooler hues), as well as sleep and relaxation (warmer tones).
But it takes more than color temperature to simulate natural lighting. The intensity of lighting (dim levels) also must be considered. And when you change one, you affect the other.
At ISE, Lutron's Sam Woodward demonstrates a process he likes to call “high-fidelity lighting,” involving the separate and simultaneous control of both color temperature and intensivity — no small feat, he says.
“It's a massive deal,” he tells CE Pro. Check out the video demonstration below.
