Can LEDs render skin tones and makeup accurately in a dressing room? Can they provide the vertical footcandles in a studio to make dancers' bodies visible, or deliver acting studio lighting to bring out facial expressions and body movements? Can LEDs deliver adequate flicker-free light in the Scene Shop, where students are using saws and other construction tools? And, can they compete with halogen on the stage, to sidelight a dance performance? What about energy savings, dimming, and color?
During this March 26, 2015 webinar, presenters Naomi Miller of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Professor Stan Kaye of the University of Florida provided an overview of DOE's GATEWAY demonstration of LED architectural and theatrical lighting in four academic/performance-related spaces within the Nadine McGuire Theatre + Dance Pavilion at the University of Florida.
