DMF CEDIA Awards (1)

Exciting New Enhancements Received CEDIA Best New Product Hardware Award, Residential Systems’ CEDIA Best of Show Award, Residential Tech Today 2023 Innovation Award and Technology Designer Performance Home Award Honors

CARSON, Calif. — Sept. 20, 2023 — DMF Lighting, the leader in modular downlighting in the custom integration channel, today announced the new iX Series Enhancements received a sweep of awards during CEDIA Expo 2023. DMF was thrilled to debut many of the new and exciting DMF innovations that will be exclusive to the CI channel. Enhancements that include:

  • True Spectrum™ 98 CRI (Color Rendering Index) light modules providing industry-leading color rendering. These modules feature new LED chips that effectively display colors in their true vibrancy and richness as they appear under natural light.
  • New premium trim aesthetics that include Raw Brass and Anodized Aluminum finishes and are available in both Flangeless and Micro Flange options. These trims offer premium materials, finishes, and performance. The trims are machined from solid blocks of brass 360 billet or aerospace grade 6061 – T6 aluminum, and in addition to providing a beautiful aesthetic, they also dramatically reduce glare.
  • iX Retrofit Conversion Kits that allow the conversion of a preexisting 6″, 5″, or 4″ fixture to a standard iX Series downlight module with either a beveled Flange, Micro Flange, or Flangeless trim option.


CEDIA, the global association for the home technology industry, honored the iX Series Enhancements with a 2023 Best New Product Hardware Award. The program recognizes exceptional new hardware and software products from CEDIA member manufacturing companies and trade suppliers.
