Verbatim launches world’s first commercially available, colour tunable OLED lighting
Verbatim demonstrated the creativity and beauty of colour tunable and white tone tunable OLED panels, thought to be the world’s largest at approximately 14cm x 14cm*. Its display, created by lighting designer Satoshi Uchihara, was located in the Design Library srl, Via Savona 11, 20144 Milan.
The large surfaces of Verbatim OLEDs, branded VELVE, produce a soft light, free from glare and with deeply saturated colours. The OLEDs, which do not contain hazardous materials, are very efficient, producing 28 lumens per Watt output at 1000 cd/m2 with accurate colour rendering (high CRI). Colour tuning and white tone tuning allow the mood of a space to be varied to suit its function at the time. For example, it may be changed from a workspace requiring bright, cool light, to a place of relaxation with warm, subdued lighting.
The panels are designed for general lighting, furniture lighting and other applications. Verbatim sells the OLEDs directly to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in these sectors.
To simplify development work, Verbatim offers two products. A sample kit for lighting engineers and development engineers contains an OLED that can be connected directly to the mains. It can be used to evaluate seven pre-programmed saturated colours, white tone tunability and a dimming function. The second product is an OLED module with a printed circuit board that provides an industry-standard DMX interface for RGB colour conotrol and a DALI interface for white tunability.
