What is “white” light? How is it defined? What is Duv? How can products with the same CCT appear different? What is color rendering, holistically, and what are the drawbacks of CRI? What is a multi-metric system and what is IES TM-30-18? What is IES TM-30 ANNEX E and how can we use it to specify light sources? These questions, and many more, will be addressed in this comprehensive talk about color science. This session is designed for the lighting professional who finds it difficult to navigate the current state of color science and is looking to cut through the fog. This session will present technical information in an easy-to-digest manner and attendees will leave with a much stronger understanding of color science and associated metrics. Current trends in color science research will be discussed.
