Verbatim's Mirageball Classic LED retrofit lamps deliver uniform, shadow-free light distribution

Nov. 16, 2015
London, UK – Using Mitsubishi Chemical’s proprietary Mirageball optical technology, Verbatim has launched an innovative range of dimmable Classic A LED retrofit lamps that deliver class-leading uniform omnidirectional light without unsightly shadows or rings.

Using a unique spherical lens created via a two-colour moulding process, the Mirageball Classic A retrofit LED lamps provides unparalleled smooth lighting perfect for floor lamps and wall sconces where a very even and wide angled light is necessary. Dimmable Mirageball bulbs offer a soft, warm ambience and a harmonious contrast that complements intimate lighting in use in the same space.

“By harnessing the expertise of Mitsubishi Chemical, this latest innovation delivers truly uniform light without unpleasant shadows and surpassing all rival products in the market. The resulting elegant and attractive lighting effect offers a new level of design creativity to enable rooms to be transformed into more exciting and stylish spaces,” explains Dick C. Hoogerdijk, General Manager LED EUMEA, Verbatim.

To ensure the lighting presents extra warmth and ambience, the Mirageball LED retrofit lamps feature a colour temperature of 2500K rather than the typical 2700K of Classic A lamps.

Verbatim’s Mirageball Classic A E27 LED lamp (product number 52322) is being sold through business-to-business channels across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The Mirageball technology will be unveiled for the first time Verbatim’s exhibition stand N35 at Lux Live 2015 held on 18–19 November 2015 at London’s ExCeL.

*Two-colour moulding, also known as two-material moulding or dual-shot injection, refers to a process that uses two different types of material for creating one object. For Verbatim’s Mirageball bulbs, the top frosted part of the lens is made of polycarbonate and diffusing material while the clear/transparent lower part of the lens is made solely of polycarbonate.
