A new spotlight on colour

A new generation of spotlights from Integral LED now matches the colour vibrancy of halogen.

High CRI (colour rendering index) was once reserved for expensive specialist luminaires. The new ‘Real Colour’ GU10s have placed vibrant colours within the reach of all budgets; shops and restaurants can display their merchandise or cuisine at their best. The new colour tuned (CRI 95) LED lamps make colours more vivid and therefore have a greater appeal to the customer.

Additionally, ‘Real Colour’ spotlights are a simple retro-fit into existing fixtures, so a retailer can be upgraded to high CRI lighting in a fast and cost-effective way.

VLC LED Drivers for Retail Indoor Positioning.

July 2017 will witness the launch of the iDrive® Force 12 Hybrid+, one of the world’s most advanced
LED drivers, incorporating Visual Light Communication (VLC) capabilities to enable high precision indoor location-based marketing solutions.

VLC technology is proving increasingly attractive in the retail sector, due to its positional accuracy of less than 0.5m, which is far superior to the accuracy achieved by Wi-Fi or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon technology.

The iDrive® Force 12 Hybrid+ enables the creation of feature-rich retail positioning systems to achieve:

• Personal guidance and routing

• Geo-fencing and analytics to determine hot spots

• Hyperlocal marketing to consumers
• Anonymized location tracking

Several leading lighting companies have already launched proprietary VLC-based positioning systems. However, proprietary technologies are often expensive and limit the choice for end-users. The iDrive® team therefore decided to focus its technical resources on creating an open platform VLC solution to enable everyone to create their own lighting-enabled location and positioning solutions, without the need to invest millions in developing their own LED driver platform.

For more information, please contact the iDrive® sales team at or by calling +44 121 362 1810.
