Brotens has released Lighting Source Manager, a Mac application for managing photometric files. It's designed for architects, engineers and any Mac user involved in lighting calculation and who needs to manage technical photometries.
Lighting Source Manager allows you to import, display, edit and format IESNA LM-63 (ASCII text files normally used by manufacturers of lighting fixtures-North Americans), EULUMDAT (formed by European standards) and even DXF data files.
Photometric solids are summarized in 36 azimithal C-curves and 180 zenithal gamma-angles, while the color of the lamps is given by the color temperature or real color. Lighting Source Manager can export to PDF a complete report for each photometric measurement.
Lighting Source Manager requires Mac OS X 10.8 or higher and costs US$29. It's available both from the Mac App Store and the Broten web site (http://www.brotens.com).
