This year at LDI, OSRAM presented three new SharXS lamps which OSRAM is calling Brilliant, after its High CRI Lok-it! Power Series lamps of the same name. Like the Lok-it! lamps, the SharXS Brilliant have a super-high color rendering index of 92-94, making them some of the best SharXS lamps ever for television and live performances with accurate skin tones and vivid, true colors are required. The new SharXS Brilliant lamps are available in wattages of 1000W, 1200W, and 1500W.
Philips Lighting was showing their newest lamp, the MSD Platinum Flex. This lamp is used in Elation’s new fixture – the Smarty Hybrid. This lamps notable features are that it has an extremely long lifetime of
10,000 average lamp hours and has reduced power consumption by 30-45%, enhanced lumen output in colors, deep dimming when the shutters of a moving light is closed consuming less power, down to about
80W from 240W (nominal power consumption). It also has a wide power range, ranging from 190W to
280W, intelligent driver scheme, a very short arc and a high color correlated color temperature.
Osram’s latest addition to their broad HMI family, the HMI Studio, offers a new option to users who work in tungsten color temperatures. The HMI Studio line is a standard HMI lamp with a patented doped UV glass envelope that incorporates a tungsten shift and UV stop, which blocks 99% of UVB and UVC rays.
Because the color is incorporated directly into the lamp, it eliminates the need for color correction accessories, saving time and money, offering a plug and play option for converting daylight fixtures to tungsten. This 90+ CRI lamp will last just as long as the daylight version and is considerably brighter than standard tungsten fixture of similar wattage.
Osram’s workhorse led flood is a solid option when a work light is required. The FLx 90 draws only 90 watts but has the output of a 500-watt halogen lamp, drawing 82% less energy than a standard incandescent fixture of the same light output.
With a 93-degree beam spread and a powerful punch, this is an ideal work light for backstage and front of house. With an IP 65 rating, you can also use it outdoors at the same facility. The FLx 90 also can be dimmed to 15%, adding even more versatility to your toolbox.
