Applying ANSI/IES TM-30 Metrics in Lighting Design

About this Course

The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. 

Description: This webinar offers an overview of the application of color rendering in lighting design, from schematic design to design development to documentation and beyond. It focuses on Annex E of TM-30 along with the forthcoming LP-30, which both provide guidance on the use of TM-30. Annex E provides recommendations for specifying light source color rendition and is a valuable tool for selecting light sources that meet color rendering requirements. LP-30, expected to be released later this year, will be a specifier-oriented document that explains how to optimize each step of the color rendering design process to achieve the most desirable results. This webinar is an ideal opportunity to learn how to evaluate and specify the color properties of light sources. Gain a deeper understanding of specifying color rendering using TM-30.
