Philips videos focus on LED Technology

Philips Automotive Lighting has been at the forefront of vehicle lighting technology and innovation since 1914. Its products can be found in one in every three new cars sold in Europe and so it is not surprising to find it leading the way in LED technology.

Part of the vision has always been to inform the market about how changing technology can be of the benefit and, in a new series of educational videos “Lead The Way,” it sets out not only to accomplish this with the latest, LED technology, but also to explain the key “must-knows” about automotive lighting as a whole. 

The science of LED lighting can trace its history back more than a century, but LEDs as we know them really came into being in the 1960s with this type of lighting becoming increasingly commonplace in the last 20 years. LEDs are now part of our everyday life and their use in vehicles is widespread – and still increasing – so the subject matter is multi-faceted.

The series of Lead the Way Philips Automotive Lighting videos firstly break down LED vehicle lighting into a series of manageable chunks, exploring various key topics that both workshops and motorists should be mindful of, before taking the plunge into LED replacement lighting. 

The series then explains vehicle lighting as a whole offering some fascinating information on this safety critical area of owning, running or working on a car, motorbike or Commercial Vehicle.

The films are cleverly crafted to bring the technology to life in a chat show format, with a genial host  interviewing a series of experts from Lumileds, who manufacture and distribute Philips automotive lighting productsglobally. 

“Lead The Way” really brings automotive lighting to life,” enthuses Lumileds’ UK and Ireland Automotive Business Development Manager, Richard Armstrong. “It demystifies the subject matter and gives technicians and consumers alike, the information they need to make an informed choice about vehicle lighting in general and LED Lighting in particular. It can help you both avoid costly mistakes and, more importantly, stay safe. It will also make you an instant Automotive Lighting expert!”

The first videos in the series are now available to view through Lumileds’ Linked-In page. To watch the videos, click or subscribe to Philips Automotive Lighting Europe.
