Color Rendering

Xicato carefully controls LED and phosphor specifications to deliver great color rendering that’s appropriate for the lighting task. When evaluating color rendering for LED solutions, it’s important to know that there are 15 different test-color samples, which are used by international color standard societies. These samples provide a complete picture of color rendering. It’s typical to evaluate or report only the first 8 of the 15 samples; this is often presented as Ra. However, this leaves out saturated and skin tone colors and can lead to an inaccurate evaluation of a light source.

Comparing good color rendering versus bad color rendering.

Xicato evaluates all 15 reference samples for its Vibrant Series®, Artist Series™ and Standard Series modules — providing a complete understanding of CRI with respect to quality of light. In the case of our Artist Series™ modules, the results for the deep red R9 and other samples put these modules on par with halogen lamps.
