ES and AVIXA Release Standard on Lighting for Videoconference Rooms
Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and AVIXA have released the new standard Recommended Practice for Lighting Performance for Small to Medium Sized Videoconferencing Rooms (ANSI/IES/AVIXA RP-38-17). This American National Standards Institute-approved standard provides lighting parameters and performance criteria for small-to-medium-sized single-axis videoconferencing spaces defined as one set of video displays and cameras.
“Videoconferencing lighting has a great impact on the user experience,” said Ann Brigida, CTS, CStd, AVIXA’s Senior Director of Standards. “AVIXA and IES share the goal of creating an environment that will enhance this form of communication. We are looking forward to working with IES again on guidance that will benefit both AV and lighting system outcomes.”
