WEDNESDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER

Ambient Communication
Tapio Rosenius, Skandal Technologies
12:00 – 18:00 (3 x 2 hour sessions)
Experience the future of digital content creation for media facades and architectural environments – straight outta Finland! With Ambient Communication, a new hybrid form of space is created, that is simultaneously digital and physical yet rooted to human biology. Skandal Technologies will bring their EC funded research findings for sharing, together with their beta level special software and sensor rig to play with.

Everything you wanted to know about LEDs* (*but were afraid to ask)
Jeremy Fielding, Atrium
12:00 – 13:00
If darc room was set in an American High School we’d call this LED 101 – using hands-on demonstrations and simple, easy to understand explanations join Jeremy Fielding on a journey through the basic concepts of colour rendering, colour temperature, flicker, dimming, consistency, spectral power distributions, control and much more – all the hot topics with live demonstrations of key elements.

Human Centric Lighting
Panel discussion featuring Dr. Karolina M. Zielinska-Dabkowska RIBA, IALD, IES, MSLL; Mark Ridler (Director of Lighting at BDP); Rebecca Weir (Creative Director at Light IQ); Stephen Lisk (Lighting Designer and President of CIBSE) and Iain Carlile (Lighting Designer and President of the SLL)
13:30 – 15:30
Human Centric Lighting was the key buzz phrase at this year’s Light + Building – almost everyone was claiming some form of Human Centric element in their product range – but what exactly do we mean by Human Centric Lighting? Is it the ability to change colour temperature and intensity, is it a more sophisticated mapping of light over time or is it mainly a marketing bandwagon that everyone is jumping on. The biological effect of light cannot be denied and therefore the responsible use of light needs to become the cornerstone of our industry.

Control
David Kriebel, LensVector
16:00 – 17:00
Control is always at the top of the list when you ask lighting designers what they want to know more about, but now sophisticated lighting control is available to everyone one from tech-savvy designers to anyone with a smart device. darc room brings you a hands-on workshop where you can get to experience the latest Casambi Bluetooth based lighting control technology applied to LensVector dynamic beam shaping, output control and colour temperature. In this workshop, you will get to see the hardware that normally sits behind the scenes, learn how to use a simple iPhone or Android app to create group, set static scenes, and create animated scenes.

Connected Lighting
Francesco Anselmo, Arup

It’s time to get your lighting geek on! We’ve all heard of the Internet of Things and Connected Light – it’s everywhere but no-one really knows what to do with it! Francesco Anselmo will break it down for us. He’s not selling anything, not promoting a specific standard but he is passionate about the future of connected light. He wants everyone to see where this technology can take us as it gradually becomes part of our daily lives in the same way that e-mail has taken over from handwritten letters.
