Soraa VIVID™ Warm Dim Lamps: Achieving New Light Quality Levels

Soraa Inc., the world leader in full spectrum color technology and optical expertise, today announced its highly anticipated SORAA VIVID-Warm Dim lamps, designed to equip lighting professionals with a specification-grade dimmable lamp that integrates Soraa Point Source Optics™ and industry-leading color rendering capabilities.

Shifting to pleasing, warmer hues as light intensity decreases, SORAA VIVID-Warm Dim maintains the high color quality that Soraa is known for. Ideal for environments that require warm dimming capability, SORAA VIVID-Warm Dim lamps are suitable for new construction and are a perfect choice for relighting existing installations.

"Adding warm dimming capabilities to our VIVID lamp portfolio showcases the power and versatility of Soraa's signature lighting technology in an elegant form factor suited for every lighting designer's repertoire," said Dr. Kieran Drain, President and COO of Soraa. "These lamps were designed for projects that require beautiful light quality in warmer hues, which is why we made no compromise in the design of these products."

Soraa VIVID-Warm Dim lamps feature new market innovations with three different types of LEDs in a 24-array configuration we call SORAA MOSAIC™ technology to achieve smooth beam edges with the industry's only 24 package design, which is 5 times greater than any other competing warm dim lamp available today. The result is a remarkably consistent light distribution, beautiful beam spread, and high-definition color and white rendering capabilities.

"The design of our warm dim LED package leverages the smallest die available today, allowing us to achieve the unique configuration that SORAA MOSAIC technology brings to our VIVID product portfolio," said Aurelien David, Chief Scientist of Soraa. "Thanks to this, whether the light intensity increases or decreases, SORAA VIVID-Warm Dim lamps' CCT matches the halogen dimming curve from 3000K to 1800K, maintaining perfect color and beam quality throughout the entire dimming range."

"With Soraa VIVID Warm Dim lamps, we can now re-imagine how we approach creating the intimate spaces where that magic matters most. The breathtaking color rendering capability Soraa now brings with warm dimming capabilities demonstrates along the entire dimming curve reveals a whole new realm of possibilities for how we can set the mood in spaces where life's most prized moments often occur," said Rodrigo Albir, Principal at Studio RODA in Miami, Florida.
