The themed block on light in the MUTEC Forum illuminates the topic from the perspective of lighting designers, users and manufacturers.
Content: Light in museums has become more diverse thanks to the LED as a light source: Multimedia staging that can be controlled to the point and precisely defined light emission thanks to new, precise optics are changing exhibitions. And with precise control of light intensities and spectra, conservation concerns can also be addressed with precision.
