Secondary optics lens manufacturer LEDlink passed Edison’s direct backlight product certification in August for LEDlink’s direct backlight OD 22mm and 30mm standard sized secondary optic lenses. By passing the certification, the optic lens can also be used in panel lighting. The two companies now plan to make their way into the direct backlight market.
Taiwan LED packaging manufacturer Edison and Secondary Optics Lens manufacture LEDlink have a very close relationship. After changing its focus in the LED lighting market, Edison established a backlight production chain at their Yangzhou factory. The factory can produce about 1.2 million Light Bars (LED light strips) monthly. Edison remarked that their current production capacity is still small.
Following Edison’s entrance into the backlight market, the company watched whether or not LEDlink would also follow suit. LEDlink pointed out that their secondary optic lens have already pass Edison’s direct backlight product certification and has the opportunity in the future to provide Edison with OD 22mm and 30mm secondary optic lens needed for direct backlight products showing that LEDlink hopes to enter together with Edison into the direct backlight market.
LEDlink Chairman Tang Delong pointed out that LEDlink is staying cautious with its cross over into the direct backlight market due to numerous competitors. Therefore they are cutting into large shipments in the initial stages of new products. However, competitors developing similar products bring added pressure, so the core of LEDlink is still small-volume large-variety production within the LED lighting market.
