New LED lighting technology offers beautiful options which require our industry to leave behind today’s lingering, outdated standards such as ANSI bins and CRIs. Innovative phosphor blends are creating new spectrums never seen before, where whites are whiter, colors are richer, and efficacies are saving even more energy.
