Key Milestones
  • 2013
    Announced EveTM G1 - The first1 100mm cutout IC-F LED downlight in New Zealand1. Eve was designed to replace traditional 100W downlights used commonly in New Zealand. Eve was a great success, selling out of its first batch prior to official product release.
  • 2014
    Visionary announced EveTM XL - The first1 125mm cutout IC-F LED downlight designed to replace larger traditional 100W bulb downlights used commonly in New Zealand. A custom developed lighting engine providing superior optical and thermal efficiency. Eve XL featured Ultra S3 - developed using long life design principles by utilization of a insulated metal substrate printed circuit board and world renowned LED diodes that have a rated lifespan of 60,000 hours @ L70 (TM-21 10K).
  • 2015
    Visionary announced IrisTM LED with X-Drive PROTM. Iris featured our first use of breakthrough silicon carbide (SiC) technology on an advanced epitaxial structure and delivering calculated L70 lifetimes exceeding 133,000 hours of diode lifespan. Even today, the Iris family is one of the most popular solutions for architectural lighting and halogen downlight retrofits in New Zealand.
  • Late 2015
    Visionary announced PhoenixTM LED Driver family with ADAPTIVTM digital processing technology. ADAPTIV technology was developed to facilitate the need for an incandescent-like dimming experience on LED lighting products where other technologies performed very poorly. Phoenix was the first1 in New Zealand to use technology of this nature to solve the unique dimmer problem faced by LED lighting products.
  • 2016
    Visionary announced the Apollo family of recessed luminaires to the New Zealand market. The ApolloTM family was engineered to deliver an exceptionally great value lighting solution to cost conscious customers without compromising quality of product. Visionary utilized a highly sophisticated high voltage circuit topology, eliminating many of the expensive and reliability decreasing components of classic LED products.
  • Early 2018
    Visionary announced EveTM G4 - a forth generation flagship downlight with game changing Sleep and Studio technologies.

  • Mid 2018
    Visionary opened its new building in the Waterloo Business Park in Christchurch with a state-of-the-art production facility with full temperature and humidity control for the assembly of the New Zealand collection of Visionary luminaires.
