Overview: The Webcast will cover what has become a widely-accepted concept that lighting applied appropriately can bring joy and convenience to people, and also enhance wellbeing and productivity and even accelerate healing. The presentation will summarize the research on the enhancements to human life attributable to tunable lighting. The Webcast will address the technology involved in tunable lighting including LED components, driver electronics, and control schemes for both light output and color temperature (sometimes called Kelvin changing). The talk will cover existing tunable light sources including retrofit lamps that carry small price premiums relative to non-tunable sources. Moreover, the discussion will project ways that what the presenters call human centric lighting can make the complete transition from the R&D stage to commercialization.
