Diverse application fields for this technology, which MAZeT and Jenoptik have been marketing together worldwide under the brand JENCOLOR since 2006, include lighting, multimedia and industrial applications, as well as analytical processes.

With JENCOLOR color sensors, Jena-based companies are themselves delivering the innovative and unique technology which will make the project possible with previously unknown color impressions. The innovative color recognition technology, developed by MAZeT and manufactured and marketed in cooperation with Jenoptik, can be used in many different ways - and more likely outside of concert halls. The first long-term orders for airplane LED lighting systems have already been submitted.

Jena, Germany, 27 Ocotber 2008 - Dr. Fred Grunert, managing director of MAZeT GmbH, and Dr. Michael Mertin, Chairman of the Executive Board at JENOPTIK AG, signed the sponsorship contract for the project "Luce. The Sound of Colors" today. MAZeT and Jenoptik are the main sponsors of the concerts and the associated installation in the Jena Volkshaus building. "Luce. The Sound of Colors" unites science, business and art in a unique way. The light-space installation is being designed by the renowned Stuttgart artist rosalie. An exhibition accompanying the project and on the work of rosalie will be open to visitors from mid-December in the JENOPTIK AG gallery opposite the Volkshaus.

"Jenoptik is known for sponsorship projects which unite technology and art in an intelligent way. Experiencing our technologies and products in a completely new context is not just exciting but also underlines their extremely wide fields of application. We are therefore also supporting the project financially", says Jenoptik boss Michael Mertin.

"Using artistic means, the Luce project demonstrates the most modern illumination technologies, which, in a few years, we will encounter in varied situations on a daily basis. MAZeT's sponsorship of the Luce project should impart the beauty and emotionality of technology and awaken interest among young people in a technology-oriented training", says Dr. Fred Grunert, managing director of MAZeT GmbH.

Feel colors thanks to Jena optoelectronic know-how.

With its innovative JENCOLOR color sensors, MAZeT GmbH is supplying the technological basis for the project, thus making possible the realization of Scriabin's almost 100-year-old vision of linking music with colors in his Prometheus Symphony. Due to insufficient technical means, suitable color effects could not be fully realized during his lifetime (1872-1915).

The color sensors developed by MAZeT and manufactured by Jenoptik make possible a previously unattainable homogeneity and brilliance of the freely-composed play of color with light-emitting diodes to the music of Alexander Scriabin, Igor Stravinsky and Georg Friedrich Haas. The musical works will be translated, programmed and recorded into a color composition by the artist rosalie parallel to the music. The Jena color sensor technology guarantees that every color which belongs to a particular tone is always perceived in the same way - regardless of the brightness of the surroundings.

Diverse application fields for this technology, which MAZeT and Jenoptik have been marketing together worldwide under the brand JENCOLOR since 2006, include lighting, multimedia and industrial applications, as well as analytical processes. MAZeT and Jenoptik work together intensively in the manufacturing and sale of the innovative color sensors. MAZeT GmbH can thus draw on the production experience and technological network of Jenoptik in the manufacture of optics, whether from glass or synthetic material, as well as in the manufacture of optoelectronic modules.

Great market potential for the technology results from outstanding manufacturing and product qualities.

JENCOLOR color sensors recognize and measure properties of surface colors of active light sources. They distinguish themselves by their compact design, long operating life, and good value production process. They offer diverse areas of application in industry and everyday life. A multitude of processes and substances can be qualitatively evaluat`??????? ?Feeed on the basis of color, for example in foods. The color sensitivity of the sensors corresponds to that of the human eye.

In illumination applications, LEDs in combination with optics and sensor technology take on completely new dimensions. Color, brightness and light distribution prove to be seemingly boundless. Among others, the systems will be used in innovative lighting systems which can automatically adjust themselves to brightness conditions. On large illuminated panels, a high uniformity of brightness and light color is attained via the technology.

Especially in illumination applications, a new market is opening up for MAZeT and Jenoptik. In future, airplanes from renowned manufacturers will thus be fitted with modules for LED illumination systems. The first long-term orders for the Jena technology have already been submitted.
