A specifier, manufacturer, and researcher team up to discuss what TM-30 means and how it can be used to improve lighting quality. This presentation will use demonstrations to illustrate what the metrics mean, then several design scenarios will be considered. This presentation is specifically intended to help bridge the gap between science and practice.
• Become familiar with the calculation results of TM-30, both numerical and graphical.
• Recognize the limitations of the this system, and more generally recognize the limitations of all measures for color rendition.
• Understand how the objective information in TM-30 can be used to aid in subjective design decisions (i.e., matching the right source to an application).
• Interpret TM-30 information presented on a data sheet or in a full TM-30 report.
