This involves a technology which imitates natural daylight to the greatest possible extent. The PI-LED technology is now expanding to new markets as a result of the technology being licensed to Philips. The company based in Jennersdorf has been developing the PI-LED technology for twelve years, and also owns the patents to it.
Lumitech was founded in 1997 by researchers at the Graz University of Technology. In 2008, Lumitech was given the renowned Austrian National Innovation Award. At that time, the company was a leader in the development of warm white LED light. Today the researchers are working on a light which is patterned on daylight and is designed to ensure the right light for product lighting, for example textiles or food, and thus enabling an optimal presentation of the particular products.
