Illumitex's New Artavi Focuses Beams Without 'Secondary Optics'

Aug 17, 2011
Illumitex Inc. released the lighting industry's first precision beam LED designed for "general, architectural, and entertainment lighting applications." As a developer of high-brightness LEDs and other forms of LED technology, Illumitex introduced its patented Artavi, which produces a narrow 10 degree beam aimed directly at the lighting target. 

Unlike other forms of LED lighting, this design incorporates optics at the emitter, eliminating the need for 'secondary optics' that act as reflectors to achieve the same directional beam effect the Artavi can do on its own. As a result, 90% of the light exits the lens in the beam, aimed directly where it is needed. The benefits of this design reduce energy costs as well as material costs associated with the secondary optics. The lighting quality of the patented Artavi is also something to note, delivering uniform light in coloring and brightness, with the beam's sharp cut-offs illuminating only where light is needed.

About Illumitex Inc.
Illumitex is a US-based company, founded in 2005 by "optics industry veterans", and is backed by some of the largest investors in venture capital. The new Illumitex technology was designed to eliminate the inefficiencies requiring secondary optics, all the while increasing energy-efficiency and beam accuracy.
