1. A light emitting panel assembly comprising:

  • a generally planar optical conductor having at least one input edge with a greater cross-sectional width than thickness; and

    at least one light source configured to generate light having an output distribution defined by a greater width component than height component, the light source positioned adjacent to the input edge, thereby directing light into the optical conductor;

    the optical conductor having at least one output region and a predetermined pattern of deformities configured to cause light to be emitted from the output region, the optical conductor having a transition region disposed between the light source and the output region.
