In this session, YOU are part of the action. Lovers of Light is a lighthearted, interactive panel discussion with serious overtones executed in a game show format. A panelist will take a side (point or counterpoint) of an industry topic in a timed debate followed by the other panelists providing a view. Then itís your turn! The audience will kick around the pros and cons of the topic for 5 minutes then an applause-o-meter will be used to determine the winning side ñ yes, there are winners and losers in Lovers of Light! The topics are:

• TM-30 – It has been out for almost two years and, while most agree it is a superior metric to CRI, almost no one is using it in specifications. Point: CRI is good enough. Counterpoint: TM-30 is a must Tunable White and Color Tuning - Light and Health is a hot topic.

• RGBAW, 2 channel vs 5, on the Locus or not... – Seems everyone is talking but few are buying – first thing to get value engineered. Point: Color Change is a must – we have the technology so use it. Counterpoint: Fixed white points are fine. “You want color change? Use a window!”

• Control and the IoT – We all admit control and IoT is the next Wild West. Is lighting the leader to collect and deliver data spawning brand new lighting markets and business models? True or False? Hype or the Future? Point: This is all a bunch of bunk. Counterpoint: The future is now and we must emerge into the next phase of digital lighting.

But wait there’s more – get ready for five surprise topics in the speed round!
