CCT and Color Metrics for Lighting

Course Description:

How to accurately measure and quantifying correlated color temperature and color rendering has been a topic of discussion for decades. The new TM-30-15 method from the IES addresses many of the shortcomings of the old single metric CRI system. In the past, several other metrics were investigated and implemented with limited results. Now TM-30 applies the latest in color science and measurement techniques and features both numeric and graphic outputs that help better interpret the results in real-world applications.
