  2. How is the recently-acquired Telensa smart city platform being integrated into Signify in North America? (2:45)

  3. What has Signify seen as demand for UV-C products and what will the demand be in the coming 2-5 years as we (hopefully) put Covid mostly behind us? (3:52)

  4. Signify has been among the leaders in providing and promoting 3D-Printed luminaires. What are the factors impeding 3D-Printed commercial fixture adoption and what will it take to see it catch on? (5:35)
