Edison Opto’s Products Reveal Perfect Color Saturation

Edison Opto’s Products Reveal Perfect Color Saturation When it comes to LED lighting products, high efficiency, excellent luminous flux, and great color presence become the prime concerns. Especially for color rendering, most people would only know CRI, which can reveal colors of the given objects with the natural light source. To meet people’s desire of better color metric, another color metric was developed in 2015. The new metric is TM-30 which was proposed by IES. Due to awareness of this trend, Edison Opto also produces new COB series, which can meet the high standard of TM-30. Read more »
