SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics unveiled a new mid-powered light-emitting diode (LED) product package boasting the industry's highest light efficacy. The new product implements color quality optimized for various indoor environments and reduces power.

Light efficacy, or light efficiency, refers to a light source's ability to efficiently convert power into light. It is hard for LED makers to increase luminous output and control color at the same time. High-performance LEDs normally have a stronger blue hue or a red hue.

Samsung said the new LED called "LM301B EVO" with a light efficacy of 235 lumens per watt has improved phosphor conversion efficiency thanks to a new reflective material installed inside the packaging of the LED. It will come in two kinds of lighting modules -- Q-series EVO for indoor lighting and H InFlux EVO for high-ceiling applications including factories and warehouses.

"Our new LM301B EVO offers an unrivaled mix of light efficacy and color rendering that aligns nicely with the changing landscape of LED lighting standards," Kim Un-soo, Samsung's LED business team senior vice president, was quoted as saying.
