New LED lighting innovations at Euroshop
August 19, 2011
Euroshop 2011 will see the launch of two world-first lighting innovations from Nualight: Vivace - Nualight's new high-CRI technology which delivers near-perfect R9 values; Spirito - the world's first truly effective LED lighting technology for open food displays, offering exceptionally high levels of brightness with all the colour versatility and energy-efficiency of LED technology.
Visitors to Stand A29, Hall will see the spectacular visual impact of Vivace on the colour vibrancy of food displays. Vivace's high R9 colour value brings out exceptional vibrancy in the colours and textures of all food on display, making food look fresher and more vivid. Most LED lighting products which claim high CRI properties have in fact a low R9 value. R9 reflects saturated red colours, and so acts to enhance the appearance of all foods, but especially those with some red colour content.
Vivace technology is now available across a wide range of linear food display lighting products in the Nualight portfolio and is ideal for meat serve-overs, delicatessans, fresh produce, chilled “ready-to-go” food and indeed any food displays where retailers wish to bring out exceptionally fresh and vibrant natural colours in the food and packaging on display.
Along with the added colour benefits, Nualight’s Vivace technology significantly reduces discoloration and product spoilage caused by exposure to heat and non-visible light emissions from older generations of lighting technologies. Unlike these older-generation energy hungry fixtures based on bulbs, Vivace LED technology has the added benefit of having no infra-red or ultra-violet, leading to enhanced visual appearance of produce with longer shelf life.
The second innovation is Spirito – the world’s first truly effective LED lighting for open food displays in supermarkets. Until now, retailers using LED technology for accent lighting of open displays had to accept disappointing levels of brightness and colour vibrancy. Using ground-breaking LED design, Spirito delivers very high lux levels with all the colour versatility and energy-efficiency of LED lighting. Spirito has been designed specifically to create exceptional brightness and vibrancy of colour for open fresh food displays such as fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and seafood.
Spirito will be deployed in a new linear Nualight product series to be launched later in 2011. With sleek, contemporary aesthetics and significantly reduced energy consumption when compared with incumbent technologies such as metal halide, the Spirito product series will make open food displays both greener and more beautiful.
Visitors to Nualight at Euroshop – Stand A29 in Hall 11 – will experience the impact of these two new LED lighting innovations for themselves in the Innovation Showcase on the stand which will also display Nualight’s integrated LED accent lighting system and Nualight’s latest LED lighting product releases for food display cases. Nualight will also show its LED lighting products for refrigerated display cases on 10 partner stands throughout Euroshop.
