As an event production company, we wanted to take a moment to recognize a breakthrough technology in our industry, the blue light-emitting diode (LED).
The inventor and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics, Shuji Nakamura, created blue LEDs that produce more efficient alternatives to white light. With this new and cost effective technology, it gives us the opportunity to finally have high enough brightness white LED’s to make them usable in lighting applications where we have been traditionally limited to tungsten, fluorescent or discharge lamps. It’s a big win for the production industry because of their low power consumption and low heat output.
