IES TM-30-15: IES Method for Evaluating Light Source Color Rendition

 

 

Slides from Professional Lighting Designer Convention [Rome, Italy | October 2015]

This is an extended version of the PLDC presentation that also includes eight sections of bonus slides. In addition to explaining the rationale for TM-30-15 and its primary components, the PDF includes sections about the IES color evaluation samples, example TM-30-15 outputs for real light sources, a description of saturated samples and discussion of relationships with CIE R9, explanation of the reference illuminants, comparison between IES Rf and CIE Ra, and a summary of the balloting process, among other sections.
