IES Detroit Virtual Meeting: Lighting and Acoustics

January 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Detroit Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society

Temporal Precision and Spatial Blur (Lighting and Acoustics) provides an in-depth look at the new product sector of acoustic lighting: where it came from, how it works, and where it’s going. While some aspects of acoustic lighting can be considered business-as-usual, it has also raised new questions and posed new challenges. This presentation will clarify basic concepts in acoustics and product application for the non-expert, to help build knowledge and intuition about acoustics within the lighting community.


Zackery Belanger

He is a prolific speaker on acoustics, and has worked extensively on architectural projects and products, including the recent emergence of acoustic lighting.
