Technology & Terminology

Want to know your Lux from your Lumens? This is the place to start.

Can I adjust the brightness & color temperature of my light?

Brightness control is available on every light we make. All lights (except for the Lume Cube 2.0) also have adjustable color temperature.

What is Edge-Lit technology?

An Edge-lit light has LEDs positioned around the inner edge of the lamp body, instead of across the back wall, hence the name "edge-lit". The LEDs shine inwards off a series of reflectors and then outwards through a built in diffusion layer. Edge-lit

What is color temperature?

The color temperature of a light source refers to how warm or cool it appears, based on the light's indicated spectrum. It is measured in Kelvin (K). A light with a warmer temperature will be around 4000K or below, while a cooler temperature will be

What does CRI mean?

Color Rendering Index (CRI) is a scale from 0-100 measuring how accurately an artificial light source can match the sun (the OG light source). Over 80 is considered GOOD, and over 90 is considered EXCELLENT. Most Lume Cube products are over 95, near

What does LUX and LUMEN mean?

Lumens (lm) indicates the total amount of visible light emitted by a source, regardless of the area it covers. In simpler terms, lumens quantify the brightness of a light source as perceived by the human eye. Lux (lx) indicates the amount of light th

What does RGB and BI-COLOR refer to?

RGB stands for Red, Blue and Green LEDs. These three colors can produce over 16 million hues of light. Bi-color lights are manufactured with a combination of tungsten and daylight LEDs. A Bi-color LED panel is designed to adjust the temperature from

What is GREEN / MAGENTA tint control?

The Green / Magenta Tint control is a powerful feature that allows photographers to fine-tune the tint of their lights. Similar to how color temperature slides from blue to yellow, this feature allows you to fine-tune the tint of the LEDs illuminatin
