Soraa LEDs Illuminate Costume And Cinema Exhibition

100 MR16 GaN-on-GaN LED lamps help display original movie costumes, props and memorabilia up close

GaN-on-GaN LED company Soraa's LED lamps are illuminating an exhibition of cinematic clothing at the Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich, Massachusetts, USA.

Visitors to Heritage Museums & Gardens' CUT! Costume and the Cinema exhibit have the rare opportunity to see more than 40 original movie costumes, props and memorabilia up close. The exhibit, on display through October 2016, includes five centuries of fashion and style as interpreted by award-winning costume designers and worn by stars including Scarlett Johansson, Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley and Maggie Smith.

The museum staff partnered with lighting designer Nancy Goldstein from Light Positive to install approximately 100 MR16 lamps. Soraa's GaN-on-GaN LEDs with Violet-Emission 3-Phosphor (VP) technology renders a wode range of colours in the objects that we see, without ultraviolet (UV) or infrared (IR) radiation that can fade or harm the artifacts.

"As a lighting designer, the most important parts of a project like this are flexibility and the conservation of the artwork. It was critical to select a lamp that emits no UV light. The flexibility of the SNAP System allowed me to modify beams so that each piece in this exhibit is illuminated perfectly and looks its very best," said Nancy Goldstein of Light Positive. "I applaud Heritage Museums & Gardens for having the long view to invest in Soraa lamps for continued benefit year over year."

Soraa's SNAP System allowed for distinct beam spreads to give the Museum the flexibility needed to properly illuminate the exhibits, and will allow them to change the lighting scheme for future exhibits without changing all the lamps. The SNAP System is the first magnetic attachment accessory system for LED lighting which combines the single source GaN on GaN LED technology with an innovative set of filters and lenses to completely redefine the accessory application.

The LED lamps are reported to use less than 20 percent of the energy needed for a standard halogen lamp, and given the low heat form the lamps, the Museum continues to save additional resources that would have been spent on air conditioning.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
