Illumitex Announces Production of Artavi™ Precision LEDs with the Industry’s Narrowest Beam Angle and Fully-Integrated Optics

Illumitex Inc., developer of high-brightness LEDs and emerging LED technology, released today the lighting industry’s first and only precision beam LED for use in general, architectural and entertainment lighting applications, ranging from high mast street lights to stage and spot lights. Utilizing patented Illumitex technology, the Artavi™ produces a narrow 10 degree beam directly from optics integrated at the emitter level. With more than 90% of the light exiting the lens in the beam, the Artavi™ promises to significantly reduce energy consumption as well as minimize overall system costs when compared to other LEDs that require secondary optics (lenses, reflectors and mechanical shields) in order to achieve a similar directional beam effect.

“No one else in the world can do what Illumitex has achieved with the Artavi™”, says Matt Thomas, CEO of Illumitex. “As our next big step in the ‘re-invention’ of LED technology, we’re pushing the envelope to drive better and more energy-efficient lighting wherever LEDs are used. But the industry is also demanding a better quality of light itself, and we’re delivering on that front as well.”

While leading the industry’s mission to create energy efficient lighting that will speed widespread adoption of LED use, Illumitex technology also improves the quality and functionality of light itself.  The Artavi™ utilizes patented Illumitex technology to deliver edge-to-edge uniformity of light—both in terms of color and illuminance—directly to the intended surface while the Artavi™ beam’s sharp cut-offs allow light to be positioned exactly where needed. The Artavi™ has an IP66 rating to protect against humidity and water.

About Illumitex Inc.:
Founded in 2005 by imaging and optics industry veterans and backed by some of the largest investors in venture capital, US-based Illumitex began industry-shifting achievements with a fresh approach to traditional LED design. By refusing to settle for the inefficiencies associated with secondary optics, Illumitex’s breakthrough LED technology incorporates fundamental physics principles to maximize light extraction from the source. By extracting and directing photons at the die and package level, Illumitex LEDs deliver more usable light to the intended target while consuming less energy. All of this is achieved in the smallest form factor available on the market. With this innovative design shift, Illumitex promises to lead the lighting industry into a new realm of possibilities.
