Acclaim Lighting
Canvas is a simple, yet powerful, DMX controller intended to design and alter color schemes for permanent installations. It can store up to 80 pre-sets as well as 60 timer-controlled events to produce precise lighting control.

Available in a wide range of painted color options and metal finishes, this company’s Shaper 1400 and 1800 series of architectural pendants offer mix-and-match color options as a standard.


This company is launching fixtures fitted with Dynamic Beam Shaper (DBS) technology, which delivers variable optics that can vary the beam opening using digital input. Its Cloud, CCT Led and LEDO products will have the tech available.

A flexible, adhesive light strip, LinearLight Flex Diffuse comes in two varieties that bend in two directions. Its silicone reflexes the light in different directions for bending side to side, vertically or as if around a sphere.


Turn your “dumb” bulbs into smart ones using this company’s Smart product. Manufacturers are provided with the WiFi module, smartphone app templates and access to Amazon AWS or the Alibaba Cloud.


WAC Lighting
