Wavien, Inc. Licensed Premien Recycling LED Technology to TaYih Industrial Co., Ltd. of Taiwan for Flashlight Applications


VALENCIA, Calif., May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Wavien and TaYih today announced that TaYih Industrial Co., Ltd. has licensed Wavien's Premien(TM) LED Recycling technology for use in ultra-narrow beam, high-output tactical LED flashlights. This new design produces over 80% increase in output intensity compared to standard technology. Wavien's Premien Recycling Collar is a very low-cost component that captures the wasted light in conventional LED lighting designs, recycles the light, and directs it back into the output beam.

Wavien continues to optimize the system performance using the Recycling Collar and plans to expand the technology into other lighting systems that are compatible with standard lighting fixtures.

"The ability to brightly illuminate an object from a distance with sufficient brightness has been a goal for many lighting designers, especially for specialty flashlight systems where an ultra-narrow, targeted high-intensity beam is needed, such as search and rescue, and law enforcement operations," stated Dr.

Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien, Inc., who is also the inventor of the technology. "Wavien's Premien technology allows the designers and manufacturers to now look at a completely new line of products that can now benefit from the ultra-bright narrow beam platform," Dr. Li added.

"LED-based portable lighting equipment has the advantages of high brightness and low power consumption; however, none of the existing commercial, off-the-shelf products really capture the light emitted by the LED efficiently. By using Wavien's unique Premien LED recycling technology, the greatest performance can be achieved. When I had the first sight on Wavien's trial product, I was so impressed by Wavien's amazing R&D capability in the photonics field, and thought that products developed based on this technology will create a brand new market," stated Mr. Huang, President of TaYih Industrial Co., Ltd.

Differently sized versions of these flashlights have been demonstrated at several major trade shows including LDI 2009 and CES 2010 in Las Vegas. Wavien will again be demonstrating this technology starting June 9th at InfoComm in Las Vegas booth number "North Hall 1066." About Wavien, Inc.
