Next-gen OLED modules for dynamic illumination
April 25, 2012 // Christoph Hammerschmidt
Verbatim unveiled the world's first colour-tunable and dimmable OLED module that delivers brightness of up to 2,000 cd/m². The company's latest series of VELVE OLED modules are twice as bright as earlier devices.
Architects and interior designers can use OLED technology to create atmospheric lighting without hot spots, glare or uncomfortable intensity. The modules can be used to create dynamic wall illuminations. According to the vendor, they are particularly suitable for creative use in stage lighting and novel applications in disco and bar environments, offering harmonious soft-light output, integrated calibration and an even distribution of light from panel-to-panel.
At the recent Light + Building trade show, Verbatim presented a set of compact off-the-shelf modules, although the company can also create custom-made OLED panel sizes. One option measures 131mm x 44mm and the second is only 65mm x 72mm, a quarter of the original size. Both variants have a depth of only 5mm. The profile of the OLED modules in this series has been made smaller, thinner and lighter because its printed circuit board is no longer rear-mounted and is housed in an electronic control unit connected via cabling.
The latest series of colour-tunable VELVE OLED modules is ideal for mood lighting with each panel delivering red, green and blue (RGB) mixed colour with illuminance of 2000 candelas per square metre at a colour temperature of 3000K.
“Although Verbatim is renowned as a pioneer in data storage, the brand's roots in lighting go back over half a century. Backed by the expertise of Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, the Verbatim portfolio of LED and OLED products is a technology that can always be relied upon to deliver class-leading performance, compatibility and quality,” said Jeanine Chrobak-Kando, Business Development Manager, LED EUMEA, Verbatim.
