Course Description:

When we see an object illuminated by a light source, we see a color. This color corresponds to a point in color space. Colors are characterized by their hue (red/yellow/green/blue) and by their saturation (from dull to very saturated). The CRI is the standard for color rendition, but suffers from issues such as inaccuracy—due to outdated color science and a lack of information (only one number to characterize color). To address these issues, the IES formed a task group which created TM-30. SORAA’s scientists led the technical work of TM-30. TM-30 uses state-of-the-art color science and produces more information with higher accuracy about color rendition TM-30, together with other color quality metrics, is used to design optimal products.
