BIOS Lighting VP to speak at LED Specifier Summit in Seattle on Sept. 22

Robert Soler to Present Aspects of Human Centric Lighting and Circadian Impact

August 22, 2016 – BIOS (Biological Innovation and Optimization Systems), a manufacturer and recognized innovator of LED lighting solutions for biological and horticultural industries, today announced that BIOS VP Human Biological Research and Technologies Robert Soler will speak at the LED Specifier Summit in Seattle on September 22, 2016.

Soler’s topic for discussion is human centric lighting and how LED lighting offers the ability for spectrum tuning, not just color tuning. During his talk, he will present current scientific literature covering all aspects of human centric lighting application.

“There is a lot of discussion about color temperature and circadian impact,” said Soler. “I’ll introduce scientific data to shed light on the difference between the color and spectrum for optimal melanopsin sensitivity.”

Prior to BIOS, Soler worked at Kennedy Space Center where he assisted in designing and building the first LED light for use on the International Space Station (ISS) and collaborated with scientists to use LED light for photo biological purposes in space. His years of experience as an electrical and lighting engineer have led him to become an inventor of 73 issued patents in the U.S. Soler’s knowledge on the subject of human lighting makes him an excellent resource for lighting professionals at the Summit.

The LED Specifier Summit is a one-day immersion into LED lighting education and solutions taking place at the Washington Conference Center in Seattle, Washington. Geared toward specifiers of commercial, architectural and decorative LED lighting products, the Summit enables attendees to stay current on the latest LED lighting trends through seminars, panel discussions, exhibits, product demonstrations and face-to-face access to leading international lighting manufacturers.

MEDIA ALERT: Robert Soler is an expert resource on human LED lighting and available to meet with members of the press and analyst community from Sept. 21-22 in Seattle. For more information or to schedule a meeting, please contact: Olivia McDonald, (321) 259-1795, ext. 450.
