Besides Lumens, CRI Matters! What Is and How to Choose the Right CRI?

GL LED5/ 1/22

Have you ever not differentiate the black from the navy colored sweaters in your closet? Not all lights are created equal:  some light has the more profound effect on rendering color than others.

A Color Rending Index (CRI) is the quantitative measurement that tells the ability of a light source to reveal colors of various objects when compared with sunlight. The index is measured from 0 – 100. The perfect 100 indicates that the light source produces the color rending of the objects around the same as the natural light sunlight.

In general, lights with a CRI index of greater than 90 are a good starting point for professional and aesthetics applications like videography, photography or museum setting. A value of above 80 is considered to be sufficient for most residential and commercial applications.
