ASSIST Releases New Method to Objectively Measure and Quantify Flicker From Light Sources

ASSIST has published a new metric for evaluating directly observed flicker from light sources. The recommendation includes specific calculation steps to determine whether the amount of flicker is above or below the threshold of human perception. The metric is applicable to any waveform shape and frequency; examples are also available for download. Read more
