The new UltraColor Soft series prides itself with “soft, softer, ultrasoft”. It offers true colour reproduction throughout the complete colour temperature range. The UltraColor Soft series light renders neutral skin tones, colors and shadows. CRI and TLCI measurements can only give a small insight into how LED lights render the full spectrum. The UltraColor Soft series can shine beyond those values with a well balanced colour response. Pure white light with a TLCI of up to 99.
