CineEurope 2015: OSRAM is presenting a new generation of XBO lamps
Apart from its extensive portfolio of cinema projection lamps, OSRAM is presenting a new generation of the famous XBO lamps at this year’s CineEurope: From 22 June until 25 June 2015, visitors to Barcelona will be able to have a closer look at the new XBO Xtreme Life with improved performance at the OSRAM stand. XBO lamps have been conjuring up great emotions on the silver screen for more than six decades – in 1984, the xenon short-arc lamp even won an Oscar in the lighting category. The current version scores points in terms of significantly improved performance with respect to its lifespan, light intensity and running hours.
Thanks to special treatment of the electrodes, it has been possible to prolong the operating time of the new XBO 2kW lamps by up to 30% to a nominal lifespan of up to 3300 hours – this leaves earlier light sources far behind. The longer lifespan is also linked to cost savings as maintenance work and frequent lamp replacement are reduced. In addition to this, the special electrode treatment also ensures the low loss of brightness over the lamp’s lifespan. Furthermore, Xtreme Life lamps offer a constant colour temperature of 6,000 Kelvin over the whole lifespan of the lamp. Available in 1200 to 6500 Watt versions, OSRAM supplies cinema projection lamps for digital projectors for leading manufacturers.
XBO lamps by OSRAM have been putting film stars in the limelight on the silver screen the world over for more than six decades. The likelihood of an XBO lamp by OSRAM projecting the picture onto the screen when you visit the cinema is very high as approximately one in three cinema screens nowadays is lit using OSRAM technology.
