2020 TM-30 Demonstration Room

TM-30 Demonstration


What do the three TM-30 Annex E Design Intents mean in real life? In the TM-30 Demo Room visitors will experience immersive mockups illuminated with a variety of light sources illustrating the various design intents (Fidelity, Preference, and Vividness). These lighting demonstrations will be paired with TM-30 values to show how TM-30 can be used to select light sources for each intent. Visitors will experience sources that meet different specification levels of the IES TM-30 specification guidelines outlined in IES TM-30-18 Annex E.

Attendees will:

  1. Understand the three TM-30 Annex E Design Intents
  2. Compare color rendering of light sources using the design intent values
  3. Understand how to interpret the TM-30 Color Vector Graphic for information related to the design intents
  4. Understand how the Design Intents expand color rendering beyond color fidelity
