LHUMAN KolorTune™ Won CE Pro BEST Product and Residential Systems Best
of Show Awards
CARLSBAD, Calif. — Sept. 14, 2023 — Legrand’s residential lighting control brand Vantage today announced it has won a 2023 CE Pro BEST Product Award and a CEDIA Expo Residential Systems Best of Show Award for its LHUMAN KolorTune™ capability in the Vantage Design Center software. LHUMAN KolorTune™ enables one of the widest selections of tunable fixtures to be used in a lighting control system and provides the tunable, controllable profiles needed to create lighting scenes with precise color temperature. The library of fixture profiles opens the door to immense lighting design freedom, simplicity, and affordability for achieving tunable and human-centric lighting (HCL) designs.
“Tunable lighting and HCL designs are proliferating, and with that has come a new set of specification and programming challenges,” said Richard Laliberty, Product Marketing Manager, Shading and Vantage Residential Controls, Legrand North America. “We created LHUMAN KolorTune™ profiles with the goal of deepening the relationship with the world’s most sought-after tunable lighting manufacturers within our LHUMAN Lighting Fixture Alliance so that fixture specification and integration are much more seamless and results are consistent from fixture to fixture. These awards are a great industry recognition of those relationships and the passion of our product development team so that specifiers and installers are able to overcome any hurdles in lighting control projects.”
Vantage’s LHUMAN KolorTune™ intelligent lighting control transforms the lighting control integration experience with full color control and dimming for light fixtures from leading fixture manufacturing partners. This innovation enables one of the widest selections of tunable fixtures to be used in a lighting system by providing an extensive library of pretested tunable light profiles needed to create lighting scenes with precise color temperatures. Available within Vantage’s Design Center software, installers simply select the chosen fixture(s), and Design Center will provide the defined fixture control details and color temperature mapping for the lighting fixture. This not only achieves super simple and fast programming but also allows Vantage’s InFusion Controller to provide the correct color mix, producing accurate color temperature and intensity for the lighting task selected.
Designers can mix and match tunable fixtures in the room with the assurance that values will match from fixture to fixture for cohesive room lighting, and KolorTune™ supports 0-10V, DMX, and DALI control protocols. KolorTune™ profiles are available for leading lighting manufacturer partners in the Vantage LHUMAN Light Fixture Alliance. As part of Vantage’s alliance, Vantage has created profiles for AiSPiRE (a WAC Company), Circa Lighting, Colorbeam Lighting, Lucetta from Elemental LED, DMF Lighting, ELEMENT fixtures from Tech Lighting, Environmental Lights, LF Illumination, Lucifer Lighting Company, No. 8 Lighting, Proluxe by American Lighting, PureEdge Lighting, Specialty Lighting Industries, and Soraa Lighting.
The library will continue to grow with new releases of the Design Center software, and designers can request additional profiles for specific fixtures. With the new LHUMAN KolorTune™ tunable profiles for Vantage’s Design Center, installers are able to take any light fixture and elevate it to provide a much richer and more intelligent lighting experience to customers and a faster integration.
