Philips Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and Acuity Brands Inc., Atlanta, have entered into a license agreement allowing Acuity Brands to access Philips' LED-based patent portfolio.

The agreement will apply to worldwide sales of LED-based luminaires developed and marketed by all of the Acuity Brands businesses. Through the agreement, Acuity Brands will be able to incorporate Philips' patented technologies related to the development and digital control of LED systems for general lighting, architectural and theatrical applications.
