Fiberoptic Studio Corp, the creators of iSky Panel Systems, has been granted a U.S. patent for its starfield ceiling. The patent recognizes the unique design of the iSky star panel system by combining fiber optics with LED and digital technology to create a star ceiling experience. The inventor is Jeff Graham, CEO of Fiberoptic Studio.

In explaining the background of the patent, Mr. Graham stated, "While starfield ceilings have been around for some time, early designs had inherent problems in cost and tedious, labor-intensive installation. By taking a completely different approach, iSky was able to provide a more affordable, easy-to-install solution that is actually three products in one - LED lighting, a star panel ceiling and acoustic panels. We call it Big Bang Effects, without all the banging."

For fast, easy installation, iSky Panel Systems employ a simplified screw-in method combining the ease of acoustic panel installation with the fiber optic star ceiling effect. The iSky solution secures easily to finished dry wall or drops directly into grid ceilings, allowing it to be utilized in most installations. Dimensions of 24", 30" and 48" in square, radius and triangle shapes allow for flexibility in panel arrangement and coverage. Allegedly, up to 100 panels can be wired from one common low voltage power supply.

iSky panels however provide more than just a dramatic, visual benefit. The panels' fiberglass materials, from a leading, national producer, also reportedly ensure acoustical treatment.
