The solid state lighting revolution has brought tremendous benefits of greater light source efficiency, longevity and new applications. While most major lighting applications have seen over 50% replacement of conventional light sources, there is tremendous opportunity in new ideas for better spectral engineering, and where, when and how we use light. Digital lighting is the next wave in light source technology where close coupling of LEDs with electronics and optics enables energy-efficient and versatile lighting solutions across different sectors. Automotive lighting is being enhanced with adaptive lighting systems, improving safety. Mobile phones now boast adaptive flash for better imaging. General Illumination has the potential for a significant shift towards smart and connected systems, optimizing energy usage by delivering the light dynamically, thus mitigating problems associated with light pollution and enhancing our well-being. MicroLED displays promise higher resolution, increased brightness, efficiency and never before possible compact light engines. We will talk about the latest Lumileds technologies enabling digital light sources and new applications.
