Webinar: Appendix E for TM-30

November 17, 2020 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

IES Chicago Section

LEDs can have excellent color performance, but when optimized for the same old metrics, they deliver performance that is very similar to older light sources. Will that change?

TM-30 has been around for five years, but last year Annex E was added which provides a wealth of information on specifying color rendition using TM-30.

This presentation covers TM-30 and Annex E and how it can benefit you as a producer, specifier, researcher, or user. In addition, the presentation will provide a preview of what’s coming next from researchers and the IES Color Committee, including a updates for chromaticity (and CCT/Duv), new color rendition metrics for metamerism and color discrimination, efforts to understand how light level and far red influence color quality, and the role of tunability in the future.

Tony Esposito is the Founder and Head Research Scientist at Lighting Research Solutions, a lighting consultancy providing services in research, education, and development. Tony holds a doctorate in Architectural Engineering from Penn State University. His specialties include color science, color discrimination, IES TM-30, human factors research methods, circadian metrics, and spectral modeling and optimization. Tony has won the Robert J. Besal design scholarship four times, received the 2019 Richard Kelly Grant, and won the CISBE 2019 Walsh-Weston Award from the Society of Light and Lighting. He currently serves as the Co-Chair of the IES Color Committee and previously led the task group that developed IES TM-30 ANNEX E, a set of recommended specification criteria meant to ease the use of TM-30.

Dr. Michael Royer is a senior engineer at PNNL, where he works on the Advanced Lighting Science and Technology Research program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. His primary research area is human factors in lighting. Michael is co-chair of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Vision Science committee and a member of the Color Committee. He also serves on the International Commission on Illumination (CIE)-U.S. National Executive Committee and other CIE technical committees.
