Highlights this week:

Reports from Taiwanese media have pointed out StrongLED might have acquired Osram Licht smart LED bulb OEM orders. The alliance formed between the two competitors in the smart light market is aimed at countering Philips Lighting’s advancements in the smart lighting sector, according to the report from Commercial Times. The group’s LED component business Osram Opto, sheds insight about new 10 degree binning color technology, aimed at providing more realistic view of color performance.

Dutch lighting giant Philips Lighting is expected to raise more than $950 million from its IPO, according to a report by Bloomberg earlier this week.
