The post-Gala glow continues with the publication of the products and technologies that scored 3.25 Sapphires and above, CARRIE MEADOWS reports.

During Strategies in Light week in Anaheim, CA, on Mar. 1, 2017, the winners were revealed at the third annual Sapphire Awards Gala. LED and lighting executives and professionals were on hand to celebrate with PennWell's LED & Lighting Network team, including representatives from LEDs Magazine, Strategies Unlimited, and Strategies in Light conference management. The celebration continued well into the evening with accolades on all sides for market-leading innovations throughout the supply chain, from enabling components to smart lighting technologies. Indeed, the coverage continues with video and images on our website and social media channels, as well as in the pages of LEDs Magazine where we now publicize the results for those product and technology entries that receive scores of 3.25 Sapphires and above.

Interested in articles & announcements on LEDs & SSL design?

Scoring ranged from 0-5 Sapphires. Each entry was considered upon its own merits while taking into account what might constitute a "perfect" solid-state lighting (SSL) product in the intended application. To achieve a score of 3 Sapphires, an enabling technology or lighting product was expected to be suitable for commercial deployment. Higher scores were given to products that were judged to perform efficiently and reliably, contribute to profitability, and demonstrate ease of use. The quality and innovation demonstrated in the submissions made such an undertaking truly challenging, but as industry professionals, designers, and lighting industry leaders, our industry experts are well qualified and were equal to the task. Additional scoring information and judges' comments will be made available privately to all entrants. For more details about the winning entries, see our feature article.
