Sept. 2, 2011
Date Announced: 02 Sep 2011 Garden City, New York – Leading the industry with technological innovation and the latest Organic LED and LED advancements, WAC Lighting has recently unveiled Hybrid, an exceptionally unique and innovative luminaire that represents the first of its kind. Hybrid merges LED and OLED technology to be used in their most salient functions.Six luminaire panels, each offering an ultra-slim profile of 4.5mm, feature color changing RGB and white Organic LEDs with color temperatures ranging from 2700K to 6500K. Each OLED panel features colors that can be individually customized to the user's preference using a DMX Controller. The glare-free OLEDs deliver diffused ambient illumination and 300-plus lumens at 12 watts. At 3000K, the OLEDs' CRI (Color Rendering Index) is 80.This luminaire leads the world's most revolutionary nanotechnology available today. The six OLED panels create a “wow factor” through color-changing RGBs while still offering a glare-free, beautifully diffused ambient illumination in the color palette of your choice.The LED multichip within Hybrid is called upon to perform the task lighting with a 12-watt downlight, delivering 557 lumens of directional light onto the surface below. LEDs are also used as a unique decorative element for accent lighting. The luminaire features eight brilliant faceted crystal brackets illuminated by less energy consuming LEDs, creating an optically pure prismatic brilliance and adding elegance to this exceptional design. The Hybrid is inherently sustainable, designed around energy efficiency and environmentally friendly technology and materials. Each luminaire is individually crafted within WAC Lighting's clean manufacturing campus featuring zero landfill status and in-house UL Labs. The OLEDs achieve energy efficiency without the use of heavy metals or other rare-earth materials commonly used in other energy-efficient sources.About WAC LightingWAC Lighting is a leading global manufacturer and innovative designer of track, recessed, undercabinet, monorail and decorative lighting, with a new sustainable LED collection.
