This year there was a big push for dim to warm fittings. Colour temperature, sometimes known as colour tuning, lighting has been around for a long time, with fluorescents been used before LEDs. While the principle of the idea of having the ability to change the colour of the white from warm to cool is good, unfortunately the technology has just not been suitable, with both dimming and the colour range (usually 3000K-6500K) been inadequate for the areas that it is needed. it does seem that this is changing though. There were a number of fittings available with a better colour range (1800K-3000K) which work with conventional phase dimmers, including some retrofit lamps as well. While the quality varied, it is positive to see that progress is been made.
It was a good show, and it is promising to see that the industry is making big strides to embracing the freedom that LEDs can provide product design. it is also good to see evolution in the types of light and fittings provided beyond the stale choices of linear LED strip in a variety of garish colours. I'll leave you with some other pictures of the show.
Best Promotion goes to Prolicht, which had a custom bag factory on site. Really ingenious and their stand had queues all week. Not sure how much people saw of actual products, but they will definitely remember the name.
