LED Light Guides Equal OLED Performance

The visual impact of OLED panels is hard to resist. Their luminosity is seductively stylish and sleek. Fashion-forward lighting designers prefer the eerily-even silky glow of the OLEDs, even though these are more expensive, have a short lifetime and can be damaged more easily than other light emitting panels. Now GLT or Global Lighting Technologies, with their edge-lit LED-based light guide technology, is about to turn the tables on OLEDs. The latest product from GLT, a 4x4 inch LED-based light Read more [...]

Choose the color of your led

To indicate the hue of a specific type of light source, the standard procedure is to measure its color temperature in degrees Kelvin. For example, for suggesting realistic colors of lights in a 3D scene, you can use a Color Temperature chart. Typically, the white balance of a video camera or a film stock is used as the base for relating visible colors. For this, two settings are used most commonly. The first is the indoor color balance, set at 3200K and the other is the daylight color balance, set Read more [...]
