Claim of US Patent No. 10,194,503

1. A composite light source, comprising:a plurality of illumination panels; and
a controller; wherein the controller:
receives a user input that defines one or more user-preferred colors,
calculates one or more colors that are complementary to the one or more user-preferred colors, such that a sum of the user-preferred colors and the one or more colors that are complementary to the user-preferred colors, provides a net lumen output and a net chromaticity;
controls one or more of the illumination panels to emit the user-preferred colors, and
controls one or more others of the illumination panels to emit the one or more colors that are complementary to the user-preferred colors,
such that a far field photometric distribution of the composite light source provides the net lumen output and the net chromaticity.
