The new lamps will be exhibited at the Osram booth #2614A at CinemaCon, held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, April 2-4, 2019, and will be commercially available in April.

For more than 60 years, Osram XBO lamps have been transforming a trip to the movies into a cinematic experience for millions of people.

The new family of high-wattage Xenon lamps are designed to meet the increasing demands of digital cinema on projection technology. Product highlights include:

  • Short arc with highest luminance for brighter screen illumination
  • A lifetime of reliable performances with constant 6000K color temperature
  • Easy to maintain
  • High level of arc stability
  • Hot restart and instant light on screen
  • Dimmable in a wide range
  • Wattage range from 1200W to 7000W
  • Wide portfolio that performs in all major projector brands

“Osram is proud of our success and longevity with Xenon cinema lamps, but we also recognize and embrace the changes to cinema in the digital age by developing products to meet the changing needs of theaters,” said Brent Eastwood, Osram’s product manager for Projection. “The addition of these high output lamps to our innovative XBO portfolio further allows theaters the flexibility to choose between highest brightness or total cost per hour with longer lifetime lamps, depending on their needs.”
