Color Kinetics announces latest achievements in white light innovation
[Company press release]
Color Kinetics has announced its latest achievements in white light innovation – both for specialty applications and the fast-approaching realization of general illumination.

“White LEDs are advancing at remarkable rates -- enabling completely new applications and fast approaching viability for general illumination. Our platform results from eight years of development, market-tested prototypes, and an industry-first line of controllable white light products that we’ve been delivering for over a year,” said Bill Sims, President and CEO, Color Kinetics.

In the U.S. alone, demand for lamps, not including fixtures, is projected to reach $5 billion by 2009*. Incandescent and halogen sources account for approximately half of that market, yet they are the two most inefficient sources at roughly 11 and 13 lumens per watt respectively, accounting for far more than half of total energy consumed by lighting. Color Kinetics will directly target this replacement opportunity with two initial products based on its modular white light platform and slated for availability in the second half of 2006:
- A recessed downlight offering the output of a 6-inch fixture in a 56% smaller aperture area of just 4 inches, minimizing visual intrusion to the ceiling plane and reducing the required cavity height
- A next-generation MR16 lamp with output sufficient to replace widely-used halogen models, targeted for applications in hospitality and retail settings

iW Blast 12 Powercore
Offering the versatile aesthetics, ease-of-control, and compact, rugged nature of iW Blast 12 in a complete line voltage system, thanks to Powercore™ technology, which integrates power and data management directly within the fixture to reduce wiring and simplify installation.
iW Profile g2
A low-profile, linear 12” (30.2 cm) system that features higher light output and enhanced light quality with new optics and advanced LEDs. It will be offered in three different beam angles; narrow, medium and forward-throw asymmetric, to meet diverse application demands.
iW Cove Powercore
A higher-intensity 12” (30.2 cm) linear system designed for common interior alcove applications. It also incorporates Powercore technology for simplified installation, and accommodates the use of many units in a continuous run, easily navigating bends and curves with end-to-end connectors.
The new IntelliWhite systems are slated for general availability in April 2006.
