DG-1, Design for Color and Illumination (No CEU)

About this Course

The IES offers a series of webinars that provide supplemental education to coincide with a recently revised or new IES Standard (Recommended Practice - RP, Technical Memorandum - TM, etc.). DG-1, Design for Color and Illumination is part of the IES Standards Webinars

Description: When developing a lighting design, lighting specifiers determine the lamp and fixture combination that best suits the design’s requirements based on many factors. While some considerations are largely technical, such as power consumption, the amount of light generated, and how light is distributed, one consideration is both technical and artistic and can be approached in a number of ways. 

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course learners will be able to...

1. Describe the three common color specification criteria: CRI, CCT, and TM-30.   
2. Develop an understanding of how color goals translate to specifications.    
3. Explore human perception in the relationship of color & illuminance levels.   
4. Develop a confidence in relying on specific measurement and performance standards available in the light & color space.
