LEDVANCE, the maker of SYLVANIA general lighting in the United States and Canada, is supporting this year’s annual LED design competition at UC Davis Department of Design with the latest in SYLVANIA SMART+™ lighting. Design students at UC Davis are developing and prototyping actual luminaires that use these controllable LED sources to explore issues associated with optics, color control and human interface design. To experiment with in their luminaire design project, LEDVANCE has donated the following to the class:
News & Events
Interested in the current state of residential lighting products? CLTC recently presented on linear LED lamp technologies as part of a webinar panel focused on light sources for the residential market. The webinar was conducted in support of Bonneville Power Administration and can be revisited here.
CLTC recently collaborated with the Emerging Technologies group at Pacific Gas & Electric Company to evaluate linear LED lamps in a variety of fixture applications, as well as identify cross-compatibility issues of select products.
The University of California, Davis, and PLC Multipoint, developer of photosensors and associated controls, have signed a licensing agreement to commercialize CLTC's electric lighting control technologies for daylight harvesting. The company plans to utilize the technology to support the development of a new generation of lighting control sensors.
