Lighting Show Season Update
It’s been a whirlwind spring in the lighting industry. All the shows we attend to evaluate new products and learn the latest innovations were all crammed into two months this year. A lot to take in and a lot to pass along to our customers and business partners.
The industry is still changing at warp speed. The lighting of today is evolving with LED technology at the forefront. The technology advancements are continuing on many different levels incorporating many things we couldn’t even dream of a few years ago! Professional Lighting is glad to be on the forefront of connecting you with the latest that’s available. It makes our work with you an exciting interaction of what’s to come. I’ve equated the difference in lighting today as the difference between rotary phones and your smart phone. All you could do with your phone 20 years ago was make a call, now you can do anything you can dream of! Lighting is also moving in that direction with the framework of LED technology as the base.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) wiring is here and brings efficiencies of wiring along with ability of the lighting grid as nodes for data collection. Fixtures are starting to do much more than just light up spaces. Empowering the light fixtures to collect data on movement, act as Wi-Fi hotspots, and relay traffic information results in endless possibilities. The interaction of large networking companies adds another layer of complexity to the lighting industry.
Where we will be in a year? Come along for the ride with us. We’ll keep you informed of the best solutions for you and your business.
Remember; When it Comes to Lighting, We’re Light Years Ahead!
