World’s first Li-Fi luminaire to be unveiled at LuxLive

The world’s first luminaire which can deliver the internet via visible light is set to be unveiled at LuxLive, Europe’s largest annual lighting event, in London in November, its developers have announced.

The move represents the debut of the highly-innovative Light Fidelity, or Li-Fi, technology in the lighting industry.

The new luminaire – developed by British start-up company, pureLiFi and French light fitting manufacturer Lucibel – places all the necessary Li-Fi components in a black ring that lies flat against the ceiling and is designed to circle an LED light. It is able to support between eight to 16 users at once, and deliver data at rates of 45 megabits per second.

Lighting is changing. Thanks to digital technology, it’s moving beyond illumination and creating exciting possibilities that were undreamt of a few years ago.

This revolution is transforming light fittings into smart devices which can monitor and control our environment. The lighting in our buildings and cities is set to form the backbone of a digital network which can engage and inform on an unprecedented scale.

And it’s not just about technology. Advances in our knowledge about how light affects people are now allowing us to create human-centric spaces where wellbeing, comfort and productivity are paramount.

From Li-Fi to human-centric lighting and wireless controls, this year’s LuxLive is a festival of cutting-edge technology.

LuxLive features more than 300 exhibitors including big brands such as Philips, Osram, Bluetooth, Astro, Thorlux and Samsung showcasing the latest technologies in this fast-moving sector plus an extensive programme of 100+ talks, debates and panel discussions.
