Virtual luminaire models for digital lighting simulation
ERCO virtual luminaires are digital fixtures that accurately predict how their real counterparts will behave. Architecture begins in the mind. The progress from concept to reality takes time and can require considerable persuasion. In this regard, implementing architectural design is largely a matter of communication. As spatial perception is entirely visual, computer generated visualizations have rapidly gained a permanent place in the process of architectural design. Just as in real architecture, virtual architecture only comes to life with light.
Therefore, every ERCO luminaire has a virtual “twin” in the form of digital luminaire data, which can be downloaded from the website and inserted directly into lighting simulation and visualization software to enable physically accurate studies, visualizations, and analyses with photographic-quality.
