A flexible video conference room lighting scheme with efficient control systems is perfect for supporting the various uses of a conference or meeting room. Ceiling luminaires can provide efficient background lighting as well as lighting for more demanding tasks. A high amount of direct, diffused light can be angled towards the participants during a video conference, whereas a narrow-beamed top light can create contrasts and the right amount of modelling. All this creates sufficient 3-dimensional light, providing adequate visibility on video. The result is professional lighting that ensures clearly visible facial expressions for more efficient non-verbal communication.
Office conference rooms can also be equipped with spotlights and wall washers to light up details or walls and create variation. A user-friendly control panel should contain various light settings to adapt the light levels to activities such as note‐taking, displaying presentations or engaging in conversation.
