Seminars on recent advancements in outdoor lighting, as well as the latest standards and regulations for LED products were shared by industry experts on the first and second days of the fair.
Steve returned home with tired eyes from examining so many LED lighting solutions, but with strengthened relationships with our existing suppliers and developers, as well as new relationships that will ensure that Matrix LED is at the forefront of lighting technology. According to Steve, the more noticeable advances and trends, and ones which Matrix LED has been closely involved with, are the innovative increases in lumens per watt from market-ready LED lights and advances in multi-channel dimming control technology using APP, touch panel, sensor and remote controller – where single lights, in a room full of lights, can be controlled through custom applications.
