IEE Names Lighting Science® to Top Ten LED Lamp List

DEFINITY™ Ranks Amongst the Best PAR 30 Reflector Lamps on the Market Today

SATELLITE BEACH, FL -- January 15, 2013 -- Lighting Science Group Corporation® (OTCQB: LSCG), one of the world's leading LED lighting technology companies, announced today that its DEFINITY™ PAR30 LED lamp has been recognized by the IEE, an Institute of the Edison Foundation, as one of the TOP TEN best LED lamps. Using an innovative approach that factors in energy efficiency, light quality, cost, and consumer appeal, three energy efficiency leaders -- IEE, TopTen USA, and Ecova -- teamed up to provide consumers with a list of the Top Ten PAR 30 LED reflector light bulbs on the market today.

The study focused on LED PAR30 and PAR38 (parabolic aluminized reflector) lamps because of their significant potential for energy savings with consumers. With approximately 150 million incandescent or halogen lamps in use in U.S. households, the potential energy savings in switching to long-lasting LED reflector lamps is vast.

DEFINITY™ products from Lighting Science® are leading-edge LED replacement lamps that deliver performance and affordability to consumers. The advanced lamp line is a result of an LED system design that encompasses efficient energy saving power supplies, unique thermal solutions to foster exceptionally long lamp life and a top-tier optical system that results in spectacular light quality.

"Our goal was to make it easy for consumers to find the best LED reflector lamps," said IEE Executive Director Lisa Wood, "and by best, we mean the most efficient, cost-effective, as well as consumer-friendly available."

LED reflector lamps are typically 360 percent more energy efficient than halogen reflector lamps. LED reflector lamps also offer a longer operating life -- typically in excess of 30,000 hours versus 2,000 hours for a halogen lamp. And the light that LEDs cast can be just as warm, focused, and dimmable. But with hundreds of LED products to choose from, finding the best products is a challenge. Now, consumers have a guide to the top performing LED lamps.

"We believe that our LED lamps are a significant advancement in the science of light and key to a more efficient, sustainable and brighter future," said Keith Scott, CCO of Lighting Science. "Consumers want solutions that make their homes feel comfortable and look even better. Our lamps enable our customers to achieve the best lighting results available today."

Testing protocol and results are available in the full report, Evaluation of Best-in-Class LED Reflector Lamps- January 2013, at: http://www.edisonfoundation.net/iee/Documents/IEE_Evaluation%20of%20Best-in-Class%20LED_Final.pdf

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
