PLASA 2012: LED Engin to demo next-gen emitters

5 September 2012

UK - LED Engin, Inc., a leader in high lumen density LED products, will be demonstrating emitters and LED modules that enable the size of entertainment lighting products to be significantly reduced, on Stand 2-S11 at PLASA 2012.

The company's LuxiGen platform of white and multi-colour compact emitters generate the high luminous flux density demanded in entertainment lighting, particularly for spot beams, distance lighting effects and in dynamic lighting scenarios.

Patented thermal management technology allows the LED die to be driven to higher current levels and in a denser configuration than industry standards, without adversely affecting operating life. LED emitters are up to 80% more efficient than traditional tungsten lighting and this combination of features in LED Engin products enables lighting fixture designers to at least halve the size of their products, and in some cases reduce the size by an order of magnitude, says the company.

Other benefits provided by LED Engin's emitters are very high lux-on-target, precise beam control and effective 'in-source' colour mixing within the primary lenses of the emitters. Beams can be tightly focused (down to 8°) using Total Internal Reflection (TIR) secondary lenses that also minimize unwanted glare, and individual dies within each emitter can be driven with different current levels to provide accurate, flexible colour control. The compact emitters also enable zoom lenses to be used and these will be demonstrated for the first time at the show.

Further advantages of LED lighting are consistency of performance over the operating life of the fixtures and very high reliability. LED emitters radiate much less heat than tungsten lamps in the beam and the typical operating life is over 50,000 hours, the company adds.

Entertainment lighting products that employ LED Engin emitters will be on display on the LED Engin stand and throughout the PLASA show. These include tunable colour spots from Anolis, full colour wall washes from SGM and GDS Liteware and stage lighting from Showtec.

LED Engin's European Manager, Gerrit-Willem Prins, comments: "The stage and studio lighting industry has embraced LED Engin's products with enthusiasm over the last two years. Lighting manufacturers have realised the significant benefits offered by compact LED emitters and our technology is now able to deliver the widest possible choice of colours, beam widths and lumen intensity from lighting fixtures. In addition, the individually addressable die enable lighting designers to use flexible control technology to make their original, creative dreams become reality."
