  • Vietnam’s historical monument, the “Imperial City” in Huế, has been illuminated with architectural LED lighting provided by Signify. The lighting project was initiated by Vietravel Company who has worked with Signify to design illumination for the Forbidden City in Vietnam to honor the historical value of the monument as well as to create a night attraction for tourist and locals. Combined with Philips Color Kinetics technology, the thick stone walls of the fortress were installed with 270 Philips Color Kinetics Vaya linear lights and 155 Philips Color Kinetics Vaya Flood. The “Flag Tower” of the Imperial City with colored light can be viewed for miles along the Perfume River. The new lighting is able to create spectacular light shows that include simulating the firing of “cannons” set in the walls of the tower. The LED lighting system is anticipated to save up to 75% more energy compared to conventional lighting systems. Aside from the Imperial City in Huế, Signify has also lit up other landmarks in Vietnam including the Dragon Bridge in Da Nang, Ha Long Bridge in Bai Chay, Hang Dau Bridge and Nhat Tan Bridge in Hanoi.

  • LED trailblazer Lighting Science® is pleased to debut theVividGroTM line, another innovative series of commercial LED lighting solutions from the industry leader. Tailored to the agricultural and horticultural markets, this state-of-the-art product line distinguishes itself from its industry peers due to its use of spectrally-optimized photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) delivery, which has been proven to support increased plant growth, development and yield. VividGro is suitable for both commercial growers and do-it-yourself horticulturalists and is assured to be a game changer in emerging markets, such as the burgeoning pharmaceutical marijuana industry. These commercial LED solutions are highly adaptable to both urban and agricultural environments, including greenhouses of any scale. VividGro is designed to go above and beyond current industry technology. Created by the same engineering team that helped develop the next-generation LED lights used to grow plants at the U.S. scientific station in Antarctica and on the International Space Station, VividGro is a complete, energy-efficient and spectrally enhanced LED grow solution. Designed to maximize photosynthetic efficiency for healthy plant growth and provide vivid color saturation, the innovative technology uses at least 40% less energy than standard high-pressure sodium (HPS) lighting. The real news is the incredible yield improvement, which means a higher return on investment for growers. Lighting Science Group's new VividGRO V2 Grow Fixture. (Lighting Science/LEDinside) VividGro’s performance-engineered, broad color spectrum can significantly stimulate plant growth while drastically reducing energy consumption by utilizing specific lighting wavelengths of 350 and 660 nanometers. These LED products have a rated life of 60,000 hours (L70), far longer than conventional HPS or other HID lamps, and are more energy efficient, using only 588W, compared to the 1000W used by standard HPS fixtures. VividGro’s unique design delivers optimal photosynthetically active radiation of 1081 umol/sec at center beam and fixture efficiency at 1.838 umol/J. The products are “instant on”, can be cycled to maximize healthy plant growth and employ passive cooling, making them completely silent. They are IP65 rated for safe operation in wet and damp environments and are backed by a 5-year limited warranty to ensure trouble free performance. “Plant growth and nutrient value is driven by photosynthesis, and spectrum-optimized LEDs offer an unrivaled source of photosynthetically-active radiation that’s used to fuel plant cultivation and propagation. The nurturing of plants in an indoor environment, supported by LED light, helps to control many of the elements influencing the growth of the plant,” said Fred Maxik, founder and Chief Technology Officer at Lighting Science. “As the urban population centers continue to grow and higher demand is placed on growth of specific plants, such as in the cannabis industry, indoor horticulture will demand more quality, energy efficient lighting. With our VividGro technology, the spectral output of the light can be tuned for a particular species of plant, to deliver optimal plant growth and energy efficiencies.” VividGro solutions are available from Lighting Science in a single bulb (Par38) or as a fixture.

  • Central Treasury securities registration and settlement companies released "national banking financial information registration system" of the Chinese banking market annual report (2014) "(hereinafter referred to as the" report ") to the market shows a picture of a banking financial market panorama. Speaking of Bluetooth technology, the applications that first come to people’s minds are probably wireless Bluetooth headphones. It has been two decades since Bluetooth used device-to-device (D2D) communication to realize audio streaming, data transmission, and navigation & positioning. The company now establishes Bluetooth mesh networking that enables many-to-many (m:m) device communications. Kai Ren, Developer Relations Manager, APAC, Bluetooth SIG, suggested that Bluetooth Mesh can serve as a platform for smart lighting and intelligent connected systems to link multiple devices together. Devices connected with Bluetooth Mesh act as nodes to form a network in which signals are passed on seamlessly. Also, Bluetooth technology allows high-level interoperability between devices manufactured by different companies, whether they are switches, fixtures or sensors. That also helps expand the penetration of the mesh networking technology. (Source: LEDinside) However, apart from Bluetooth technology, there exist a broad range of networking technologies, such as Wi-Fi and Zigbee. How does Bluetooth technology compete with them? The fact is that the amount of connecting capabilities this massive wireless communication market demands is way more than those Wi-Fi and Zigbee can support, said Ren. The biggest strength of Bluetooth Mesh is that it supports virtually every operating systems, features low power consumption and is protected with data encryption, he stressed. On the other hand, the development of Wi-Fi started relatively early and is thus comparably mature, especially in terms of technology verification. There are currently around 8 billion Wi-Fi based devices installed around the globe. Wi-Fi features strong penetrating and data transmitting capabilities. Derek Feng, DEKRA General Manager EMC & Wireless Mainland China and Hong Kong, explained the verification of Wi-Fi tests performances including interoperability, security, connection efficiency, and technology optimization, and related applications and services. In addition, the Wi-Fi alliance delivers the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Home Design program, allowing construction companies to integrate designed Wi-Fi networks directly into builder floorplans. Buyers when moving into a new home can enjoy a perfectly connected Smart Home services without buying Wireless Application Protocol (WAP). (Source: LEDinside) In comparison to households, smart lighting in the public space develops much more rapidly. In particular, smartening street lights is the first step each city takes to transform into a smart city, and street lighting becomes the target of network and system developers. Street lights are deployed in every corner of a city and are thus much suited to collect various public information, said Wincy Chan, IoT Ecosystem Lead, Asia / Microsoft. The status of each streetlamp can be tracked through real-time monitoring platforms, which effectively cuts down maintenance costs. Smart street lighting systems can also switch on/off and dim the lights based on the occupancy of an area. Microsoft has teamed up with Indian lighting company Samudra LED to launch smart street lighting plans in India, resulting in efficient urban lighting management and power savings of up to 80%. (Source: LEDinside) Smart lighting is thriving in Hong Kong as well. The Hong Kong government at the end of 2017 published The Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong, with an initiative to implement the multi-functional smart lampposts pilot scheme starting from 2019 to 2021 to facilitate collection of real-time city data to enhance city management and other public service with 400 street lamps in Causeway Bay, the Central Business District/Admiralty, Tsim Sha Tsui, and Kwun Tong, said Ip Kwok Leung, Nelson, Chief Engineer of Lighting Division, Highways Department. Sensors and other digital devices will be installed on the lights to collect real-time data, such as weather, traffic, occupancy, and environmental information. Those lights will also be able to support 5G communications and serve as urban Wi-Fi hotspots. (Source: LEDinside) OSRAM, Philips Lighting Develop IoT Technology Lighting giant OSRAM in January released smart city management platform SymphoCity for the Chinese smart lighting market. Minna Lai, Director, Research & Development, OSRAM Lighting Solutions, APAC, stated that the company in recent years has been collaborating with local governments to deploy LED landmark luminaires featuring Chinese aesthetics in cities such as Wuhan, Shanghai, and Suzhou.
