oversees the lighting of the falls

The difference between the two technologies is like comparing a 1950s-era television to the flat screen TVs of today. The new lights will shine twice as much light on the falls as the ones they are replacing.The searchlight-style lighting will be replaced by banks of flat lighting panels atop the Illumination Tower, in the Niagara Gorge and in a new location atop Table Rock. A total of 12,600 LED T8 Fluorescent Lamps lights will replace the current 21 spotlights.

Throughout history, entrepreneurs and government agencies have sought to extend the time to view the falls into the night, but it wasn’t until the the Illuminations Board was formed in 1925 that lights were consistently shone on the falls.”It’s a completely different technology. It’s a major changeover of the lighting of the falls,” said David Adames, chief operating officer of the Niagara Parks Commission in Ontario. He is also a member of the Illuminations Board, a binational committee which oversees the lighting of the falls. Both countries are equally sharing in the cost to upgrade the decades old lighting.

Adames said currently they use colored gels on the Xenon lights and are limited on color combinations, but the new lights will allow them to have any color of the spectrum, as well as varying shades of those colors, and programmable lighting displays .

The lights are on every night, and the Xenon bulbs must be replaced every 1,900 hours of use, according to Ecco Electric of Ontario, the company that is custom-building the new fixtures. Adames said the LED bulbs will last 20 years or longer. They will also consume less electricity and the computerized system will give operators more lighting options.Ecco Electric worked with a Canadian team that included Salex Inc., Mulvey and Banani Lighting, Sceneworks and Stanley Electric.

The Stella spLEDs also deliver cord-free, flicker-free, dimmable and rechargeable cinema lighting with a 120-degree beam angle. The smallest light, the Stella 1000, seen below, can run at full power for 90 minutes and up to 700 minutes
on a single charge, notable for high-output camera lights of any kind.”These LEDs are a single point of light, not a panel,” brand manager Jeff Lazell told StudioDaily during a demo. Light & Motion refers to this officially as Single
Point LED, or “spLED” for short, both as a way of underscoring spLED’s technical and practical advantages but also to distinguish it from other LED lights and traditional HMI lights.

Light & Motion is one of only a handful of brands that both designs and builds its LED lighting products and accessories entirely in the U.S. “These lights are built like tanks,” Lazell says. “They can handle just about any weather you
can throw at them, and the untethered lights are submersible up to 100 meters deep.The untethered Stella series begins at $500 for a single Stella 1000 light and increases to about $2,200 for the Stella Pro 7000.

the wider film market with its series of untethered Stella LED on-camera lights.

All the Factor LED lights can be powered by a larger V-mount or Gold mount battery and are Bi-color without output loss.”They can handle just about any weather you can throw at them, and the untethered lights are submersible up to 100
meters deep. I personally dumped one in the ocean during a recent shoot. I just hosed it off and put it back to work. You could even throw one of these into a pool for a shimmery lighting effect. They really open up the possibilities for
where and how you light that shot.” Just dial in the color temperature needed.Because lumens accurately measure the amount of visible light coming out of a product, like out of a projector, and more efficient LED designs are improving
overall power use, he says wattage is now too unreliable a gauge.Light & Motion is one of only a handful of brands that both designs and builds its LED lighting products and accessories entirely in the U.S. “These lights are built like

“This can be enhanced by applying aminolevulinic acid, which is only available by seeing your dermatologist.” Waibel agrees that the strength isn’t the same: “Dermatology in-office LED and other lasers penetrate deeper through the
skin, making them more effective,” she says.New parents Jacob and Breanne Gardner walk in Downtown Little Rock. They say one of the highlights of crossing the river between North Little Rock and Little Rock are the LED lights.

At night something is noticeably different… the Broadway Bridge is dark. The City of Little Rock and North Little Rock say they are working to figure out a way to add the LED lights to the bridge, but it’s more difficult than flipping
a switch. Now, as the new Broadway Bridge is open, both cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock want the same LED lights on it, but they just don’t know where the money will come from.”These LEDs are a single point of light, not a
panel,” brand manager Jeff Lazell told StudioDaily during a demo. Light & Motion refers to this officially as Single Point LED, or “spLED” for short, both as a way of underscoring spLED’s technical and practical advantages but also to

The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department says it has build in areas for the lighting equipment. A spokesperson with Entergy says she is not aware of any recent conversations between Entergy and the cities about the bridge.
Both cities confirm they have been having internal and external discussions on how to light the Broadway Bridge. At this point, they don’t know how much it will cost exactly, but say it’s very expensive. New parents Jacob and Breanne

What the NX LEDs will enable is dense integration of the packaged components in luminaire products or on level 2 printed-circuit boards (PCBs) or light engines. Indeed, the Cree NX web page shows dense packaging similar to CSP marketing materials from other companies.Cree’s new NX packaged LED line of Extreme Density (XD) devices may deliver up to 800 lm.
Cree further makes the point that NX will enable dense packaging of LEDs of different colors or CCT ratings, thereby enabling tunable-white luminaires and color designs for applications such as horticulture, that also leverage the XD lumen density advantage.

Cree did not provide many details about the first XD16 LED due on the market. We presume that the 16 refers to a package measuring 1.6×1.6 mm. In the current Cree portfolio, the XD16 might be considered in the same class as the XQ-E LEDs. White XQ-E products top out at around 334 lm. Based on the stated lumen density levels, the new XD16 LEDs might hit the 800-lm level.Moreover, the initial products featured a relatively high CRI of 80.The new products will also deliver an improvement in efficacy. The original 3000K luminaires were rated at 115 lm/W. Cree said the new products deliver 128 lm/W. Of course, LED evolution would have delivered some of that efficacy gain over the course of the last year, even without a move to cooler CCTs and/or lower CRIs.

Getting to the new street lights, the RSW family has won praise for its light-guide-based design that enables low glare, and that Cree has also used to mix two LED channels or colors (blue shifted yellow plus red) to realize warm CCTs with little efficacy penalty.

Now Cree will offer the design in cooler CCTs such as 5000K. Moreover, those designs likely use a single channel of white LEDs and should prove less expensive than the warm-CCT RSW products. The new RSW models have a CRI of 70 that is more typical of street lights on the market. Still, the WaveMax light guide should yield the same low-glare benefits.

Meanwhile, the Extreme Density labeling just adds to the growing set of modifiers that Cree has used to describe new LEDs in the last few years. It seems the XD designation is nearest the Extreme High Power (XHP) designation that covers larger LEDs, although those LEDs are general multi-emitter designs. But Cree also uses High Density (HD) to refer to LEDs that stretch the lumen density curve. Meanwhile, High Intensity (HI) is used to describe LEDs that enable better optical control and concentrate energy in a narrow beam. Cree says that the XD16 LES will “enable higher performance luminaires with better light control.”
