New York Patent of the Month – May 2022

Apogee Lighting Holding, LLC was founded over 30 years ago, using their expertise to create innovative lighting solutions. In order to achieve the form and function needed in different environments, the company develops a range of technologies that can expand lighting potential. Recently, they developed a control device that allows for color correction for lighting. 

The color correction panel controls a series of RGB (red, green, blue) LEDs as well as white LEDs. The user can independently control the brightness as well as the hue, so that nearly any light combination can be achieved. The associated software can be used to achieve any target color, making minute adjustments as needed. The user can supply a reference color which the software will use in its efforts to color match. 

This innovation can aid in Apogee Lighting’s endeavor to create the desired lighting for any infrastructure or architecture. Along with color correction, the brightness is controllable so that any light dampening or dimming can be achieved.
