ProSource software for light source modeling

Radiant Imaging has released ProSource 8.0, the newest version of its software for light source near-field data analysis and ray generation. ProSource 8.0 provides simpler, more intuitive program navigation, enhanced graphics, and improved ray generation from Radiant Source Model data files. ProSource 8.0 is intended for use by light source and lighting system designers and developers, and applies to all light sources including emerging LED applications.

ProSource 8.0 has improvements to nearly all areas of the software.

First, ProSource 8.0 provides an intuitive interface to allow the user to view, manipulate, and process Radiant Source Model (RSM) data files more simply and faster than in previous versions. RSM data files are industry standard representations of near-field measurements of light sources comprised of thousands of detailed images of a light source. RSMs are generated by measuring a light source on Source Imaging Goniometric systems such as Radiant Imaging's SIG-300 and SIG-400. A new user interface and graphics allows users to more rapidly access and analyze RSM information, resulting in both time savings and deeper understanding of light source performance. In addition, window docking and tabbing enable much easier organization of the different data representations and operations that result during a typical ProSource session.

Second, ProSource 8.0 generates ray data that accurately represent the output of the light source and which can be exported for use with all popular optical and illumination system design software packages.
