Radiant Imaging, a provider of imaging systems for colour and light measurement, has released ProSource 8.0 for light source near-field data analysis and ray generation. ProSource 8.0 provides simple, intuitive program navigation, enhanced graphics, and improved ray generation from Radiant Source Model data files. The software is intended for use by light source and lighting system designers and developers, and applies to all light sources including emerging LED applications.
ProSource 8.0 provides an intuitive interface to allow the user to view, manipulate, and process Radiant Source Model (RSM) data files simply and quickly. The user interface and graphics allows users to rapidly access and analyse RSM information, resulting in both time savings and deeper understanding of light source performance. In addition, window docking and tabbing enable easy organisation of the different data representations and operations that result during a typical ProSource session.
In addition, the software generates ray data that accurately represent the output of the light source and which can be exported for use with all popular optical and illumination system design software packages. Users can control the number of rays generated, angular range of the rays, total luminous flux of the ray set, and ray origin. In addition, colour RSM models can be directly analysed in ProSource and the program has the ability to generate a full colour ray set data for export, providing significant advantages to optical designers in accurate modelling of lighting systems. Colour models are especially important for emerging LED lighting and display applications.
