VALENCIA, Calif., June 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Wavien, Inc. has developed the Recycling Light Technology (RLT™) for increasing brightness of LEDs for small target illumination in the digital projection. The brightness increase mechanism can be used to conserve energy by lowering the power consumption while satisfying the same brightness specifications. This is especially important for battery-powered projectors where battery life is very important.
The RLT technology improves brightness to LEDs with full color capability. The range of recycling can have an increase of brightness from 30% for the red, to over 180% for the white. This equates to an energy saving of 25% to 65% in power consumption or increase in battery lifetime by 30% to 280%.
Traditional light collection optics platforms do not increase the brightness of the LED and as a result, are not efficient for projection. The recycling collar is a very low-cost optical component that captures the wasted light in conventional optics designs, recycles the light and redirecting it back into the output beam allowing increased efficiency, while reducing the power consumption. "Wavien's RLT technology for LED offers outstanding energy saving by recovering unused high angle light from the LED. This recycling technique is a benefit for a wide range of applications including projectors and spot lights," stated Dr. Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien, Inc., who is also the inventor of the recycling technology. Dr. Li added: "This unique design enables LED based products to be able to reduce power consumption by 35% and up to 280%." The diameter of the aperture on the collar, which determines the amount of recycling, can be scaled to meet the user's needs and determines the beam angle. "Clearly the RLT technology will revolutionize the projection industry especially in battery operated devices where battery life is a very important factor." stated Dr. Li.
This LED recycling technique is also being introduced into many other areas of illumination including medical light sources and consumer projectors. Wavien will show this technology at InfoComm 2013 in Orlando, Florida from June 12 – 14 at booth #381
