Overview: The Webcast will provide an insider's view of the foundation, accomplishments and goals of the Zhaga Consortium. The presentation will cover the benefits on industry standardization relative to solid-state lighting (SSL) products, and the particularly difficulties of defining electrical, mechanical, optical, and thermal interfaces to modular light engines. Further, the Webcast will describe the consortium's work thus far publishing its specification Books for specific types of luminaires and provide insight into upcoming activity on Books that are in progress or planned. The talk will also cover Zhaga's plans to open books to the public domain once they are published and to ultimately have the Books formally standardized by established industry-standard bodies.
