Design for Color and Illumination (DG-1-16)
April 19th 12:00 PM EDT
When developing a lighting design, lighting specifiers determine the lamp and fixture combination that best suits the design’s requirements based on many factors. While some considerations are largely technical, such as power consumption, the amount of light generated, and how light is distributed, one consideration is both technical and artistic and can be approached in a number of ways. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Upcoming Webinars

Tunable White Controls
May 17th 12:00 PM EDT
This webinar will take participants through the different types of light spectrum control, discuss the color tuning abilities of tunable white fixtures and their design challenges, and conclude with how you can reduce risk and meet your client’s sequence of operations requirements on color tuning projects.

TM-30 in 2018 and Beyond: Guidance for Improving Color Quality
June 14th 12:00 PM EDT
This presentation will cover updates to TM-30-15, and how ongoing research is providing knowledge that allows for improved color quality. It will discuss where TM-30 stands within the North American and international lighting communities, and demonstrate new features that may be added over time (feedback welcome!). In general, the emphasis will be on translating science into practice, with a focus on specification and highlights of new products being designed using TM-30.

Lighting for Residential Environments (RP-11-18)
July 12th 12:00 PM EDT
This new Recommended Practice provides design criteria for the many different types of interior and exterior spaces associated with residences and residential environments. This is the first version of RP-11 to be ANSI approved, as well as having collaboration with ALA. This document addresses the many and varied visual tasks during the course of the many activities and needs for all types of lifestyles and age groups. This new RP-11 presents lighting criterion and design techniques that include new and current focuses, such as energy usage and resilient lighting. These issues have gained predominance throughout our society on a continuous basis. Lighting design for residences requires an added expertise of understanding the psychological and physiological aspects of lighting, and how it pertains to personal preferences. Lighting quality is immeasurable in the sense of one’s feeling of well-being in a space. The relationship and balance between technical knowledge and the skill to create pleasant, functional lighting environments is evident within this document. IES members can register for free after logging in.  Nonmembers must pay $20 to register.  Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
