About the event


When we see an object illuminated by a light source, we see a color. This color corresponds to a point in color space.

Colors are characterized by their hue(red/yellow/green/blue) and by their saturation(from dull to very saturated). The CRI is the standard for color  rendition but suffers from issues such as inaccuracy—due to outdated color science and a lack of information (only one number to characterize color). To address these issues, the IES formed a task group which created TM‐30. SORAA’s scientists led the technical work of  TM‐30. TM‐30 uses state‐of‐the‐art color science and produces more information with higher accuracy about color rendition TM‐30, together with other color quality metrics, is used to design optimal products
