LensVector Showcases Dynamic Beam Shaping at LFI

LensVector will change the scene at Lightfair International this May as luminaire manufacturers and control companies demonstrate breakthrough Dynamic Beam Shaping technology.

The lens allows infinite beam adjustment along a continuum from a less-than-ten-degree narrow spot to a very wide flood and eliminates the need for dedicated spot or flood lamps in many applications. Retail and hospitality lighting in particular will benefit from the precision beams and dynamic dramatic effects.

“Harnessing the value of LEDs requires technology breakthroughs that enable LED luminaires to offer more functionality and versatility than was ever possible with conventional lamps and fixtures,” said Brent York, President and CEO of LensVector. “Dynamic Beam Shaping gives architects and designers greater freedom to create engaging and dramatic environments.”

“LensVector enables us to offer a brand new dimension of light control with our Casambi platform,” said Timo Pakkala, CEO of Casambi. “With luminaires from Targetti and Forma Lighting, we will be showing just how simple it is for designers to create dramatic shapes and textures of light.”

LensVector’s liquid crystal technology integrates with current and future control protocols and allows unique solutions in the lighting market. LensVector’s unique LC lens technology will be displayed by the following partners:

Casambi booth 131, Eulum Design booth 4472, Elite Lighting booth 3502,  Hevi Lite booth 353, SLD booth 5640,  OrigamX booth 5321,  Rosco booth 4812,  LightHeaded booth 4809, LEDRA Brands booth 1648, XAL booth 1267, Intense booth 202.

LensVector’s product utilizes an electrical field to align liquid crystal molecules to create a series of “micro-lenses”. By changing the electric field, the “micro-lenses” are manipulated to create desired illumination effects.

About LensVector:

LensVector is transforming the shape of light from fixed reflectors and lenses with digital liquid crystal technology that allows light to be infinitely shaped on demand from IoT platforms, mobile devices, and modern control systems. LensVector’s innovative Dynamic Beam Shaping technology has been recognized with a 2018 Sapphire Award and as a Top Ten Innovation at the 2018 Light + Building Conference and Exhibition.
