Ott-Lite Technology’s parent company, Environmental Lighting
Concepts (ELC), was founded in 1989 as a collaboration between Dr.
John Ott, a pioneer in light research, and Fred Mendelsohn, who with
physicians at Johns Hopkins University Hospital helped develop one
of the first light therapy units to treat SAD or “winter blues”. Dr.
Ott discovered through 40 years of scientific research the remarkable
effects specific wavelengths of natural light had on plants, animals
and humans. As a cinematographer for Walt Disney, Dr. Ott developed
the first Ott-Lite® product while experimenting with time-lapse
photography on the Academy Award®-winning “The Secrets of
Life” series. Dr. Ott again worked with Disney to create the
magical growth of a royal carriage from a pumpkin seed in the film “Cinderella”.
It seemed simple enough. But as Dr. Ott found out, pumpkins don’t
grow indoors, let alone under artificial light. By harnessing the power
of natural sunlight indoors, Dr. Ott met the Disney challenge.
Today, all Ott-Lite products are scientifically formulated with
this original idea in mind, but by continuing Dr. Ott’s groundbreaking
research, we have since learned to refine and differentiate formulations
to satisfy various viewing and lifestyle requirements. Now consumers
have a choice. With Ott lite lighting systems it is possible to see
with superior clarity without the intense heat, excessive glare and
harsh distortion of standard lighting.
It is our goal to continue creating high quality products that enhance
the lives of our customers, and make the things they do easier and
On a rainy day it’s hard to get out of bed. But, when it’s
clear out with sunlight streaming through your window you’re
ready to face the day. There’s more science behind the cause
and effect of natural lighting on our mood and attitude than most people
Because our eyes contain 70 percent of our body’s sense receptors,
visual cues are unquestionably the primary way we see the world.
Light plays a big part in how our eyes work. Unquestionably, natural
daylight is the best light source for reading, viewing fine details
with truecolor rendering, and the next best thing to natural daylight
is Ott-Lite lighting.
Think of how a camera works the same as how your eye does. In order
to create the perfect picture, you need two key ingredients – the
proper lighting for a balanced exposure and a clearly focused image.
Ottlite lighting creates the best conditions for your eye to take
the perfect picture.
The eye is a light sensing system with a photoreceptive medium like
the film. The camera aperture for light is like the pupil. The lens
in focus is like the retina. High Definition Lighting provides just the
right amount and the proper quality of light to allow your eye to
see clearly in its most comfortable position
