Third consecutive award for the high-tech company from the US publication Architectural SSL Magazine
The US professional lighting journal Architectural SSL Magazine has selected Osram Opto Semiconductors for the third time in a row as winner of the Product Innovation Award in the category Market Leadership. Each year since 2011, the magazine has honored not only the most outstanding product innovations in the solid-state lighting sector, such as luminaires and fixtures, but also leading industrial companies.
Architectural SSL Magazine’s Product Innovation Award (PIA) is awarded annually in various categories. The Market Leadership category includes five sub-categories in which awards are given. Osram Opto Semiconductors is the 2013 winner for Industry Participation. Comprised of distinguished industrial design experts, the jury was swayed by the company's extraordinary dedication to developing a number of standards and regulations for opto-semiconductor products, and by its achievements in research and development.
The award also honors the work of Dr. Jianzhong Jiao, who as Director of Regulations and Emerging Technologies at Osram Opto Semiconductors has made a significant contribution to establishing industry standards for LED testing. The high-tech company also was praised for making the details behind these regulations as well as other extensive and valuable information available to the SSL community on the Internet at its global LED Light Site. In the development of new products, Osram Opto Semiconductors garnered recognition for product innovations such as the Oslon SSL LED, which achieves a value of 95 on the color rendering index.
