Title: Optimizing multichannel luminaire control using a color efficient matrix

Abstract

The described embodiments relate to multichannel luminaires (102, 212, 404) that employ a color coefficient matrix (CCM) that can be used to adjust an operation of the multichannel luminaires according to their contribution of light to an area (112, 402). The CCM can be generated based on images captured within the area and/or a software simulation that approximates the contribution of light from the multichannel luminaires to the area. Once the CCM has been generated, the CCM can be used to compensate control signals to each multichannel luminaire in order to provide more accurate color rendering and uniform light distribution. Furthermore, feedback from embedded sensors (206) in the multichannel luminaires and/or sensors (116, 208, 210, 418) in the area can provide further basis for compensating control signals according to the qualities of the natural and artificial light entering the area, and the effects of different surfaces (128) on the light.
