Fifty Shades of Blue is a discussion of how lighting is changing with the advent of multi-colour LED-powered fixtures. Additive colour mixing gives designers the power to subtly manipulate colour on a real-time basis. This session delves into the nuances of additive colour changing and also presents examples of innovative control features that allow lighting designers to better handle the wonderfully variable—but sometimes non-intuitive—colour changing capabilities of LED-powered lighting.
