UNIFORM LIGHT AND CONTEMPORARY ATMOSPHERES
Dynamic Beam Shaping (DBS) optical technology was created from the desire to give designers a sophisticated yet simple to use tool. Technology that we were the first to develop in the lighting sector together with Lens Vector – a leading American company in lens design - that makes it possible to vary the beam opening of fixtures via digital input without any mechanical system. With DBS we combined LED sources, collimated optics and lenses equipped with liquid crystal molecules that can be activated and oriented using an electric field thus creating a light diffusion process.
HOW IT WORKS
Liquid crystal materials are widely used in projectors and LC (LCD) displays. They are elongated molecules that are naturally aligned in the same direction. The DBS lens is composed of two glass substrates separated by spacers that are sealed to contain the liquid crystal materials in a kind of “sandwich”. When an electric field is applied to the lens the molecules change direction and refocus the light that passes through the lens. Managing the electric field and the direction of the molecules it is possible to shape the light beam. Dynamic Beam Shaper provides beam control from 15° to 55°, allowing designers to create scenes and manage lighting in different environments using Targetti Control by Casambi, without the use of mechanical systems, scales or replacement optics.
HOW IT’S CONTROLLED
Using the Casambi app, available for IOS and Android, it is possible to dim the sources, set the desired beam opening and create dynamic scenes. The same fixture controlled fromany smart device provides infinite possibilities.
