Published on

In an age where lighting technology is advancing far faster than the metrics used to define them we have a rare opportunity to redefine lighting for the better. In this talk, Paul will dig deep into existing lighting metrics and discuss the impact LED technology is having on them in the marketplace and if they need to change to be more human centric.

  3. 3. Abstract Lighting technology is advancing far faster than the metrics used to define lighting and we have a rare opportunity to redefine lighting for the better. In this talk we will dig deep into existing lighting metrics and regulations and question if they need to change to be more human centric.
  4. 4.  The problems lighting industry metrics and regulations have caused in artificially lit environments.  How we ‘unlearned’ the importance of natural light.  Why and how some widely used metrics such as UGR (unified glare rating) may no longer be fit for purpose when using LEDs instead of legacy light sources.  Why designing luminaires for with LEDs requires new optical approaches and form factors.  Insight into why the lighting industry needs to go beyond technological improvement and put the human at the centre of lighting design.
