Lighting going ‘beyond LEDs’, say industry bosses

Lighting technology is developing beyond just LED to smart lighting and digitalisation, industry leaders at Light + Building told Lux.

Anil Gupta, COO of Havells-Sylvania said: ‘People are expecting high levels of connectivity because of the digitalisation of lighting… not only to save energy but also to enhance the perception and overall ambience of lighting.’

Amy Huntington, who leads Philips’ Professional Lighting Solutions business, said: ‘The return on LED technology is now obvious. Philips needs to continue to lead the way and shape the industry in the promise and potential of digital light.’

Ignasi Cusidó Codina of Spain’s Lamp said: ‘It’s not just about LED – we have already passed that step. Now what we need to do is apply this technology to all of our different needs.’
