My wife noticed a discernable difference in using Waveform's lighting in her sewing room when it comes to color matching. Unfortunately the delivery company was a bit rough in the handling of the first package we received which resulted in two of the four light tubes being damaged. Customer service at Waveform Lighting handled it right away and sent us replacements immediately. Great people to deal with!
My company manufactures high end loudspeakers. We use these D50 bulbs in our visual inspection stations. They work great for color matching as well as identifying scratches and defects.
Installed the bulbs in a large 50' overhead viewing area to evaluate color for billboard printing. Bulbs are a near-perfect D50. Way more consistent and longer-lasting than the GTI bulbs used previously. My clients are extremely picky theatrical movie companies and consumer products companies. Our clients love our color viewing setup.
I have purchased D50 5000K T8 LED Tube Lights and installed them in my office and now the light is great! I can finally see the colors with great detail and intensity. Couldn't be much happier, I'll be buying more from Waveform Lighting in the future for sure!
I have now installed 16 Waveform color matching tubes in my 16-foot light array for my print viewing wall. I was using Chroma 50 bulbs for the last 40 years because that was the best option until now. I removed the ballasts and wired them at one end.
The results compared to the GE Chroma 50 bulbs in the same fixture is that the Waveform tubes output approximately 50 % more light measured at the wall with a Minolta digital incident exposure meter (0.5 EV greater). This is even though the rated lumens of the LED bulbs is 1800 and the Chroma 50 bulbs is 2250. The color appears a little cooler, but was obvious only after I replaced the bulbs on the left side of the array and compared the light on the wall to the right side.
This was a pleasant surprise and I am happy with the setup. Michael
Bought these for our salons. Much brighter and more balanced than the previous lights.
Met our color critical needs for accurate color matching to original artworks
Loved the no ballast required.
I have been printing B&W and color photographs for decades. These D50 tubes are the best light source I have ever used. The spectrum is perfect when viewing a metamerism checker. I will be buying more.
Using these for a new Art Printing Shop to do color matching. Very pleased with the product.
