Product Award Winner:
Nichia’s Dynasolis

Statement of the Jury: “The connection between health and light is increasingly recognized in greater depth and will become even more significant in the future. The Dynasolis innovation is an entirely new LED tuning solution that regulates circadian rhythms by adjusting melanopic illuminance and color temperature while maintaining high CRI and efficacy. It is the combination of the energizing azure (sky blue) and a peaceful, calming warm white hue focusing on the non-visual element that truly addresses HCL. Applications range from medical, office, education and even residentials.”

Product Award Winner:
Samsung’s LH502D

Statement of the Jury: “In Europe, more than 50% of outdoor lighting systems are outdated. There are safety, security and consumption issues. The LH502D shows high performance in multiple core reliability tests with an increased lifetime. The new 3-layer anti-sulfurization ceramic coating technology with a 5050 LED package offers improved performance with reduced costs to support investments for new and retrofit installations – especially for harsh environments such as streets- and tunnel lighting.”

Product Award Winner:

Statement of the Jury: “YASMEEN zoom is a zoom optic family that enables new lighting possibilities thanks to its flexibility and adaptability. YASMEEN zoom optics are unique, as they have been designed with no axially moving parts. Luminaires can be made smaller, are easier to design, and fit into existing track light concepts. YASMEEN zoom optics can be used for compact retail lighting luminaire designs that demand the flexibility of easily adjusting zoom optics in a single luminaire. YASMEEN zoom optics also support sustainability: there’s no need to replace and possibly dispose of luminaires.”

Product Award Winner:

Statement of the Jury:  “DALI PRO 2 IoT is a lighting control technology with an integrated IoT gateway and open REST/ MQTT API provide access to cloud applications, thus enabling IoT use cases. Luminaire information, energy consumption and maintenance data can be pushed to the cloud. The Energy Monitoring and Maintenance Assistant (EM/MA) cloud service enables facility managers to monitor their lighting installations, gain insight into individual energy consumption areas, identify maintenance needs and making system updates remotely. This enables energy and cost and investment (replacements) savings.”

Product Award Winner:
EnOcean’s STM550

Statement of the Jury: “The STM 550 multisensor family combines temperature, humidity, lighting, acceleration, and magnetic contact sensors in a small case. The multisensor is for the EnOcean wireless standard and for Bluetooth® systems and can be used for IoT and digitized building applications. An integrated solar cell supplies the sensor itself with energy for uninterrupted operation over several days with little or no light. STM 550 operates completely maintenance-free. It can also be integrated into a wide variety of assets and therefore can be used where the data is needed: on walls, ceilings, windows, doors, furniture, active devices, and objects. The multisensor has an integrated NFC interface for configuration and commissioning.”

Sustainability Award Winner:
TE Connectivity’s LUMAWISE Motion Sensor

Statement of the Jury: “LUMAWISE is a new motion sensor designed to bring sustainability and efficiency to street lighting architecture. With detection zones up to 30×6 meters and strong infrared sensing capabilities, LUMAWISE Motion Sensor can light the way, even in harsh environments. Enabling energy savings from dimming or even turning off a luminaire while still being able to react to motion and bring a luminaire to full brightness for safety and security reasons. LUMAWISE Motion will fit into the Zhaga-D4i ecosystem, which is the new standard for smart cities. It works as a standalone control device or in combination with Zhaga-D4i photocell or communication node for greater levels of controls. The sensor is a pluggable device, with the standard Zhaga book 18 interface for an easy upgrade.”

Scientific Best Paper Award Winner:
Dr. Eric VIREY from Yole Group

“Will MicroLEDs Revolutionize the Display Industry?”, LpR94, Nov/Dec 2022, p46-51.
Statement of the Jury:  “The lecture gives a profound overview of technology at the edge of commercial implementation. It describes various aspects, both commercial and technological. It shows hurdles and chances and compares them with competing technologies (LCD, OLED).”

Achievement Award Winner:
Jan DENNEMAN from the GoodLightGroup

Statement of the Jury: “Jan Denneman has dedicated over 40 years of his professional career to developing and promoting the lighting sector. He has initiated several international consortia, like the Global Lighting Association, Zhaga, the Connected Lighting Alliance, and LightingEurope. He also founded the GoodLightGroup, where he serves as  Chairman. He is passionate about light and health, and rethinking lighting again.”

LpS Digital Awards 2020

Facing the Challenges of Spectral Engineering with a New Software Tool


Adria HUGUET-FERRAN, Ph.D. Candidate, Researcher at the University of Barcelona, Spain

Paper published:LED professional Review (LpR), Issue #81, Sept/Oct 2020, p58-p62Lecture published:

Rationale of the Jury:
The effects of spectral distribution of LED and LED systems on various parameters for light quality were examined systematically. It was shown that the quality parameters correlated weakly but it was necessary to optimize the spectral distribution in order to reach target values. A software tool was developed in order to carry out this optimization.

Best Scientific Lecture/Paper – Technology Award 2020

Best Scientific Lecture/Paper – Design Award 2020

The Poetics of Darkness

Monica Llamas and Florencia Castro, both of MFA Lighting Design, B.A. of Architecture, New York

Paper published: LED professional Review (LpR), Issue #81, Sept/Oct 2020, p76-p81
Lecture published:

Rationale of the Jury:
Reflecting on cultural history, the authors came to the conclusion that light is almost always connected to positive expressions while darkness is assigned negative terms. Unfortunately, these attributes have found their way into the practice of lighting design. The authors advocate utilizing darkness creatively in the planning process and depending on the application, not only to allow for specific differences in light intensity, but to utilize them purposefully. They corroborate this thesis with practical examples.
