Solutions from Lumec, Philips Color Kinetics, Wide-Lite, and Crescent/Stonco Win Coveted Spots
MONTREAL, Feb. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Further cementing the company's position as an industry leader in LED technology, Philips has earned four Next Generation Luminaire™ (NGL) awards in the outdoor category at the prestigious, fourth-annual NGL Solid State Lighting (SSL) Design Competition. Solutions from Philips Lumec, Color Kinetics, Wide-Lite and Crescent/Stonco were recognized for the sleekness of their LED design, as well as their color quality and light uniformity enabled by Philips LUXEON LED technology.
Held during the Strategies in Light Conference, the competition is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the Illuminating Engineering Society, and the International Association of Lighting Designers and recognizes excellence in the design of energy-efficient LED luminaires for general illumination in commercial lighting applications. The goal of the NGL competitions is to make it easier for lighting designers and specifiers to find LED lighting products that are worthy of specification. NGL-recognized products have to measure up on many fronts, including suitability and quality, not just energy-efficiency. Of the 176 products submitted for evaluation, only 37 were recognized in ten categories.
Earning "Recognized" or "Notable" status were four Philips LED lighting solutions:Streetscape Lighting Category
