May 2nd, 2021 Dallas, TX—Last Monday, Prosource leadership officially opened their recently completed Lighting Technology and Controls Learning Center at the World Trade Center in Dallas, TX. The LTC was conceived, designed, and built from the ground up by Light Can Help You's own Mark Langston and David Warfel. Monday’s ribbon cutting ceremony included members of Prosource’s leadership team, as well as members from the local community and LCHY team members.
A large part of the day was spent filming scenes for Prosource’s upcoming teaser trailer for wide release to show off the LTC’s capabilities as well as a tours and demonstrations of the center’s training and techniques showcases given by LCHY’s Chief Lighting Advisor, Mark Langston. Some notable highlights from the tour included:• Visitors were allowed to the “back of house” to interact with the new High Voltage training area. Participants got to see first-hand how to work with line voltage LED fixtures, as well get some hands-on training in their installation.
• Participants were treated to a sneak-peek of the expansion of the Prosource Lighting Technology Training Program. Past participation has been completely online, but with the opening of the LTC, trainees will be able to either travel to Dallas to learn first-hand or take advantage of an expanded range of online offerings. One of the benefits will be a readily available place to share training, product updates and news from Prosource, Light Can Help You, and associated partners.
• There were lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” when Mark gave a demonstration on the power of lighting to control the total feel of a living space. Showing of some the center’s dynamic color capabilities, participants were shown artwork under different CRI’s and different color temperature “whites” to show decisively how the different colors affect homes. People were amazed when it was shown how a “tan” colored carpet becomes a “white” carpet, without the rest of the house changing, simply by altering the output of the architectural lighting.
