Illuminating Our Experiences with Human Centric Lighting

Human centric lighting is an oft discussed design term; yet there is confusion about what it is and how to use new and existing technologies to achieve it. This course helps professionals understand how to define human centric lighting, what benefits it can provide to people, buildings and businesses, and how to practically apply it when designing projects. It also addresses the intersection between electric lighting & natural daylight, and how achieving a human centric design requires an integrated approach to those two disciplines.


Daniel Christiano has been with Hubbell Lighting for 5 years and currently serves as the Southeast Specification Sales Manager.

CCT and Color Metrics

How to accurately measure and quantify correlated color temperature and color rendering has been a topic of discussion for decades. The new TM-30-15 method from the IES addresses many of the shortcomings of the old single metric  CRI system. In the past, several other metrics were investigated and implemented with limited results. Now TM-30 applies the latest in color science and measurement techniques and features both numeric and graphic outputs that help better interpret the results in real-world applications.
