Verbatim launches First Commercially Available, Color Tunable OLED Lighting

Verbatim has launched the world's first commercially available, color tunable organic LED (OLED) lighting panels. The OLEDs are based on a unique materials technology developed by Verbatim's parent company, Mitsubishi Chemical Holding Group. The full-scale production of new OLED panels will start in July.

The large (14 x 14 cm) surfaces of Verbatim OLEDs, branded VELVE, produce a soft light that is free from glare and has deeply saturated colors. The devices which do not contain hazardous materials are very efficient, producing 28 lumens per Watt output at 1000 cd/m2 with accurate color rendering (CRI). Color tuning and white tone tuning allow the mood of a space to be varied to suit its function. For example, it may be changed from a workspace requiring bright, cool light to a place of relaxation with warm, subdued lighting.

The panels are designed for general lighting, furniture lighting and other applications. Verbatim sells the OLEDs directly to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in these sectors.

To simplify development work, Verbatim offers two products. A sample kit for architects, lighting designers and planners, and development engineers contains an OLED that can be connected directly to the mains. It can be used to evaluate seven pre-programmed saturated colors, white tone tunability and a dimming function. Software control is implemented over a USB connection. The second product is an OLED module with a printed circuit board that provides an industry-standard DMX interface for RGB color conotrol and a DALI interface for white tunability.

The OLED sample kit will be available in May 2011, and the OLED module, during the second half of the year.
