Foot-Lambert: INF

     Luminance = INF ftL (foot-lambert)
     This is a lot of light. You're gonna have to wear shades.
     Luminance = INF cd/m2 (candela/square meter or nit)
     INF EV (exposure value)

A foot-lambert or footlambert (ftL, sometimes fl or ft-L) is a unit of luminance. For screens that are projected upon (like cinema, home cinema), it quantifies how much light is reflected (to the center of the room). This depends on the amount of light produced (lumens), the size of the screen and the screen gain.
