Webinar: Light and Color with LEDs

January 28, 2021 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EST

IES Long Island Section

The next IES educational seminar will be held on Thursday, January 28. We are pleased to have Barry Young of GE Current as our guest speaker. Barry’s presentation is entitled “Light and Color with LEDs.” This presentation qualifies for 1.0 HSW learning units.

About The Program: Our eyes can play tricks on us when it comes to color and how the eyes adapt. Lighting designs are affected, positively and negatively, by this. Understanding basic vision science, and how the eye perceives colors of objects and the environment, are important elements in design considerations. Comprehending color metrics that are used with conventional and LED sources will allow for a more thoughtful technical and artistic approach to the design.

​About The Speaker: Barry Young is currently Specification Sales Manager, Northeast for GE Current-a Daintree Company, a leading American manufacturer of architectural lighting, controls, and disinfection lighting solutions. He manages a network of sales agents and end-users to secure one name specifications to drive business through Current’s distribution network. Barry began his career as a lighting sales representative in New York City by calling on electrical distributors, lighting showrooms, architects, electrical engineers, and lighting designers. His lighting work included residential design, outdoor site lighting projects, museums, commercial and retail spaces, emergency lighting layouts, and lighting control commissioning.

Barry is Lighting Certified (LC) from the National Council of Qualifications for Lighting Professionals. He has served the IES for several decades, and is currently the Vice President and Program Manager of the Long Island Section.
