The event was dedicated to the Entertainment community, with more than hundred professionals from Western and Eastern Europe participating in LIGHT INSIDE 2008, spending two exciting days (5th – 6th of May) in lectures and workshops.
After a brief introduction covering the various segments and fields of application of Osram, the first day was focussing on presentations regarding LEDs: technology, modules and luminaires. The speech of the guest lighting designer, Nic Philips, enchanted the audience with amazing pictures from show and theatre events, highlighting the design possibilities of LED lighting.
The day ended in a stimulating way with a guided tour through the historical scenery of this medieval city. Thanks to the wonderful evening and the friendly atmosphere, this was really appreciated by all the guests.
The second day started with a presentation on the layout of the new Opto Semiconductors factory followed by information regarding halogen lamps and the latest trends in high power effect lighting. All the participants, both producers and dealers, then took part in three workshop sessions, collecting and prioritizing input on specific business topics.
The event was organized and chaired in turn by: H. J. Schwabe, J. Denz, A. Marino, W. Schnabel, H. Laabs, J. Oser, J. Fischer, G. Maihoefner, M. Mahn, A. Itabashi, A. Koehler.
The latest products were presented in detail during the workshop: the innovative Lok-it! concept, KREIOS, the new LED module developed commonly with ARRI and various fixtures with high power LEDs for use in Architainment and indoor lighting.
The next LIGHT INSIDE 2008 will be held in Treviso in spring 2009. See you there!
