This session presents the new ANSI/IES TM-30 Annexes E and F, which identify three color rendering design intents and provides specifiers with TM-30 values to achieve them alone or in combination. The goal of this presentation is to increase awareness of this newly published documents and to help attendees better understand their contents and use. This presentation is most appropriate for participants with some prior knowledge of TM-30, although a brief overview of TM-30 will be provided.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the key TM-30 measurements that provide significant color rendering information.
  2. Describe the three color rendering design intents in TM-30 Annex E.
  3. Compare color rendering of light sources using the design intent values.
  4. Analyze TM-30 values to determine where a light source falls on the design intent table.
