Interesting review of Nexxus’ SSL lamp 这里, written by one of Fast Company Magazine’s technology bloggers.
The review contains some errors in its analysis, but it’s an interesting take and shows what non-lighting people are thinking about some of these advancements. In particular, LEDs still have a very high cool factor with consumers.

A nearly 300-page report released by Strategies Unlimited, LED lighting Fixtures – Market Analysis and Forecast, provides a detailed assessment of the market drivers and challenges faced by the LED lighting fixture industry in penetrating the general lighting market. It provides application analysis and forecasts for nine lighting market segments through 2012.
Through 2007, LED lighting applications included niche markets such as exit signs, architectural lighting, accent and decorative lighting and entertainment lighting, many of which used red, green and blue LEDs. However, white LED luminaires have begun to capture a strong market position in selected applications such as consumer portable lighting (e.g. flashlights, headlamps) and solar landscape lighting, and more recently have begun to be used on a limited basis in applications such as retail display lighting, commercial and industrial lighting, and outdoor area lighting.
In 2008, white LED fixtures accounted for just over 50% of the total LED luminaire market.
In recent years, LED technology has made impressive performance gains, which in turn have improved the efficacy of LED luminaires. In the forecast period 2008-2012, white LED luminaires will make gains in market share as the best commercially available high-performance white LEDs move beyond luminous efficacies of 100 lumens/W. Further improvements in designing luminaires that can optimize LED operation are expected to drive the growth in LED luminaire market. Both recessionary pressures and mass manufacturing of LED luminaires will further reduce the cost of manufacturing. As the LED lighting market grows beyond single color and color-changing applications into general illumination applications such as residential, commercial and off-grid applications, and ultimately into outdoor area applications, it is forecast to exceed $5 billion in 2012, corresponding to a compound annual growth rate of 28% from 2008-2012. By then, it will be only be the beginning for the ultimate replacement of conventional light sources, including high-efficiency fluorescent and HID luminaires. However, many challenges face the LED industry to accomplish that goal, all of which are discussed in the report.

OSRAM SYLVANIA has introduced a full line of “True Replacement” LED lamps marketed as direct replacements for standard incandescent, halogen and compact fluorescent lamps in commercial and residential applications.
The 8W LED A-Line can replace a 40W incandescent A-line lamp typically found in table lamps, ceiling and wall mounted luminaires.
Another common form factor around the home and hospitality applications is the B10 shape; the incandescent B10, or candelabra shape lamp is the most popular bulb in chandeliers, but can also be found in ceiling and wall-mounted fixtures to add elegance and intrigue to the fixture design. SYLVANIA’s LED B10 lamp preserves the sparkle of the incandescent B10 to enhance the classic beauty of chandelier fixtures. In this LED B10 lamp, the LED itself is enclosed in a clear glass envelope and has a crystal-like light concentrator to uniquely fragment the light and add stylishness to the disbursement.
Sylvania also offers LED replacements for 60W halogen PAR38 lamps. The LED PAR38 generates a standard 30° Flood beam with a center beam candle power at 2350 cd. It consumes 15.5W power and offers 75% savings over the 60W halogen PAR38 flood. The LED replacement features a CRI of 87. In addition, the LED PAR family also includes LED PAR30 Long Neck LED PAR20, LED PAR16 and LED MR16.

The Lightfair Innovation 获奖情况, sponsored by Architectural Lighting Magazine and elumit.com, honored five products out of 218 submissions with the following awards:
Most Innovative Product of the Year: Calculite Solid-State Downlights by Lightolier/Philips
Design Excellence Award: Kite by Peerless Lighting/Acuity Brands Lighting
Technical Innovation Award: Luxeon Rebel ES from Philips Lumileds Lighting Company
Technical Innovation Award: SST-90-W by Luminus Devices
Judges’ Citation Award: LM-80-08 Approved Method for Measuring Lumen Maintenance of LED Light Sources from the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES)
Every single one of these products is LED.
Who would have guessed just 3 years ago that LED general lighting products would take all of the top awards?
Check out these and other products exhibited at Lightfair 这里.
On another note, for some reason, LED light sources are still considered “specialty lamps” and controls and ballasts are still considered “other” products. I hope to see the event’s categorization of products catch up to the times in 2010.

At Lightfair, Philips Lighting unveiled a prototype of a 600-lumen output A-shape LED bulb that can ultimately be used to replace 40W incandescent lamps in general lighting applications in the U.S. and 60W incandescent technology in the European (230V) market.
Highly efficient and dimmable down to 10%, the 8W 120V integral lamp is powered by Philips Lumileds Luxeon Rebel LEDs and delivers 75 lumens/W, five times the efficacy of the equivalent incandescent. Suitable applications include table lamps, overhead luminaires and other indoor general lighting applications.
The product is scheduled to be commercially available by late 2010 and will be part of the company’s emerging new EnduraLED family of SSL retrofit solutions in North America (presented under the MasterLED family name in other parts of the world).

Philips is currently working on transparent OLEDs, enabling OLED panels to function as ordinary windows during the day and become panels at night to imitate daylight or provide attractive indoor lighting. Even during the day, they could function as privacy shields.
Transparent OLED panels will be commercialized within the next 3-5 years, according to the company.

Yesterday, Royal Philips Electronics unveiled the first-ever OLED interactive lighting concepts–for both consumer and professional use–during Euroluce International Lighting Fair in Milan. The concepts offer a combination of intuitive interactivity, ultra flat shape, soft light-effect and new design possibilities.
“Our concepts demonstrate a new light ambiance, novel design possibilities and unique interactivity of light and human gesture,” says Rudy Provoost, CEO of Philips Lighting.
For homes, Philips is presenting four different concepts: standing, wall, desktop and ceiling luminaires. All incorporate flat OLED light panels, supplemented with LUXEON Power LEDs for the functional lighting part.
Each model has different intuitive interactive capabilities. The ceiling concept, for example, features a balance of uplight and downlight that can be changed or dimmed to alter the ambience in a room with a gesture of the hand. All of the concepts on show share a sleek, streamlined design that makes them as decorative as they are functional.
Aside from the range of consumer luminaires, Philips is also unveiling an OLED installation for professional segments in large spaces, such as reception areas. Just like in the case of the consumer concepts, this installation is both functional and highly experiential, featuring a luminescent wall that reacts directly to passersby, creating mirrored reflections of their “shadows” amid the light. Philips invites to “play” with this new technology and experience it as much more than a light only: a softly glowing mirror, an interactive tool, a very aesthetic light source and an inspiration for further products and applications.
Says Provoost: “The solid state lighting revolution is happening at the right time. What’s particularly exciting is that LEDs and OLEDs offer the possibility to create new lighting designs and experiences that weren’t achievable in the past. With these new concepts Philips is adding a whole new dimension to lighting and the way it can enhance people’s lives.”

当你’大概知道，那里’最近几个季度，关于如何最好地衡量照明（尤其是住宅灯具）的能源效率一直是一个颇有争议的辩论。辩论的核心是两个词’m sure you’现在熟悉：光源功效和照明功效。
