GE "General Electric"
GE Lighting was founded by Thomas Edison (pictured above), back in 1890. He formed the company not long after inventing the very first commercial incandescent light bulb, so its pedigree is second-to-none!
Boasting 130 years of lighting innovation, the company now manufactures an enormous range of LED bulbs. These bulbs come in specific ranges for consumer ease. These include a Premium range, a Smart range and a Start range which are all designed to excel in different areas. From energy efficiency and longevity, to affordability and outstanding performance, GE light bulbs have it all.
GE aims to introduce lighting which can be used easily and intelligently, to brighten up dark environments. The company firmly believes that it has hastened a new age of lighting. And, in 2017, the company's High Definition LED Lighting range was unleashed upon the general public for the first time.
Their new HD LED bulbs have a much higher CRI (colour rendering index).
This means they can achieve greater colour contrast and boldness than the typical bulb.
Using this new HD bulb to highlight features in a room can make them look clearer and more precise to the human eye. Not to mention, these bulbs also have the beneficial energy savings and longer lifespans of a premium LED product!
