Date Announced: 18 Aug 2008 Eco-Friendly Systems Allow Retailers to Achieve High Quality Illumination with Minimal Maintenance Requirements Lighting Science Group (LSG), a global developer and integrator of intelligent and efficient light-emitting diode (LED) solutions, today announced the global availability of its LED-based retail display product line. Following the release of LSG's Eyeleds(R) and Replacement Lamp product lines earlier this year, the new line of retail display luminaires will enhance the company's global product portfolio and increase its presence in the retail lighting industry. The LSG retail display luminaires provide retailers with environmentally friendly, energy-efficient solutions that significantly lower operating costs and reduce the carbon footprint, while enhancing the shopper experience. Ideal for indoor environments, the range will be available worldwide through Lighting Science's extensive channel partner network of agents, distributors, designers and Energy Service Companies (ESCOs). "Lighting Science is committed to driving the LED lighting industry with continuous innovation and real-world expertise," said Govi Rao, chairman and chief executive officer of Lighting Science Group. "This launch exemplifies our understanding of the technology and the unique needs of the retail market. With LSG's product design and semiconductor optimization expertise, we are introducing LED lighting options that provide high quality illumination that display merchandise in their true colors -- without the ultraviolet light that discolor merchandise." LED light sources provide superior benefits regarding energy efficiency, life span and environmental impact in comparison to both fluorescent and halogen. LEDs consume up to 80 percent less energy than traditional halogen sources and as much as 50 percent less than fluorescent bulbs. Furthermore, the differentiated line is RoHS compliant and since LEDs do not contain hazardous materials like lead, mercury and other heavy metals, the new lights do not require special disposal. "Lighting Science retail display systems truly capture the detail, color and sparkle of shelf merchandise while reducing retailers' carbon footprint," said Zach Gibler, chief business development officer of LSG. Offering superior performance in four slender profiles, and available in two finishes, black or natural aluminum, LSG retail display products fit unobtrusively for both retrofit as well as new installations. Furthermore, the range will produce true-to-color illumination ideally suited for retail shelving, display cases, showcases, exhibits as well as architectural applications.
