Got Questions About Lighting?
Back in 2005 is LIVE! From the LRC Internet Teleconference, a monthly 90-minute seminar that brings LRC lighting experts straight to your office via telephone and Internet. The next teleconference is January 19, 2005 at 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. EST.
Truths and Myths in Lighting: Lessons from Research will examine many of the myths and misconceptions that have developed in the field of lighting in recent years. These have led lighting professionals and the public to ask many questions of lighting researchers. A panel of LRC experts will provide detailed answers to a number of questions sent in by participants already registered for this session, including:
Full-spectrum lighting – Does full spectrum lighting improve visibility, visual performance, health, or well-being?
Scotopically enriched lamps – Do scotopically enriched lamps, or lamps with high CCTs, improve visibility and visual performance?
Color – Does a high CRI value indicate improved color rendering?
HID/Blue Headlamps – Do HID or blue headlamps improve visibility for drivers? Do they cause disability glare for oncoming drivers?
Exit Sign Color – Do certain colors of exit signs (red vs. green) enhance exit sign visibility in clear and/or smoky conditions?
It's not too late to sign up for this or future LIVE! teleconferences. Additional teleconferences are scheduled for February, March, April and May with topics such as energy-efficient lighting, daylighting techniques, light and health, and outdoor lighting. For more information or to register, visit the LIVE! From the LRC Web site.
