Date Announced: 28 Apr 2009 Seoul Semiconductor Co. Ltd. has announced that its Z-Power LED P4 series products were used to spotlight the exhibits at Da An Art Gallery in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, China.Lighting for exhibition at a gallery or a museum needs the optimal light source to show the colors and figures of exhibits to the viewers finely, so it is selected with particular standards considering the amount of ultraviolet rays and heat radiation. While the existing halogen lamps and fluorescent lamps for galleries or museums require additional filters or caps to prevent ultraviolet radiation that may damage the exhibits, LED lighting without ultraviolet radiation doesn’t need any additional device.Seoul Semiconductor replaced 50W halogen lamps with their 7.2W spotlights at the sculpture and calligraphy frame parts at Da An Art Gallery in China, which is expected to have 85% power saving.
