Lighting Reality, the Birmingham-based designer of real time lighting design software for outdoor and street lighting, will be delivering two workshops at the ILP Professional Lighting Summit in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in June.

Lighting Reality is sponsoring the ILP (Institution of Lighting Professionals) Professional Lighting Summit and its current flagship product, Lighting Reality PRO, is the industry leading application used by lighting engineers, manufacturers, local authorities in the UK and increasingly on a global scale.

Chief operating officer Tony Cook said: “The ILP Lighting Professional Summit is attended by the top designers, engineers, managers, contractors, specifiers, manufacturers and lighting professionals, not just from UK local authorities and the private sector, but also interested industry professionals across the world.

Tony added: “We will be delivering a workshop on both days of the summit exploring how cloud computing could be used to improve luminaire selection for street light projects.

“We will also be showcasing on our stand all the industry-leading features of Lighting Reality PRO, demonstrating how quick, easy and intuitive it has made what was traditionally a labour-intensive and time consuming job.”

Lighting Realty PRO supports all major international standards, and is constantly evolved as these standards are upgraded. It provides access to a library of photometric data files and helps lighting designers produce custom reports in multi-lingual interface.

In the two workshops, Tony Cook and his colleagues will highlight how a cloud based version of Lighting Reality PRO aids luminaire selection.

2019 has already been a busy year for Lighting Reality with the appointment of Dragon Lighting, located in Perth, the capital of Western Australia, to spearhead the firm’s expansion into Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Singapore.

First launched in 2001, Lighting Reality PRO is now used by around 97.5 per cent of British municipalities and the company estimates that around 90 per cent of lighting engineers in the UK own a copy.

Lighting Reality has become the market leading specialist in outdoor and street lighting and is now established as the UK’s first choice among lighting manufacturers and local authorities for its dedicated software solutions for lighting engineers.

Innovation is the company’s trademark, driven by its philosophy of “Quick Easy Intuitive”, and Lighting Reality pioneered the first luminaire optimiser on the market.

Its flagship product, Lighting Reality PRO, is now available to lighting designers worldwide, and the appointment of Dragon Lighting is the first phase in the company’s new global strategy and the first step in its new export programme.

The ILP Professional Lighting Summit runs from Wednesday 12 June to Thursday 13 June at the Life Science Centre, Times Square, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
