Lamp Options

We only sell lamps that perform to the data projector manufacturers' original specification. We do not sell copy lamps, branded or otherwise, that lowers the data projectors’ performance level and risks your health and safety. 

Where available, we offer these lamp options: -

Original Manufacturers Lamp 
As supplied by the original data projector manufacturer, this lamp typically uses a bulb supplied to them by one of the major bulb manufacturers, Philips, Osram, Ushio, Phoenix, Iwasaki or Matsushita.

Diamond Lamps
Using the same bulb as supplied to the ‘original manufacturer’ above, a Diamond Lamp is a lower cost alternative that does not compromise quality. Complete with a new chassis, this lamp gives identical performance to the Original Manufacturers Lamp with an unprecedented 4 month warranty.

Lamp Range can supply a spare lamp or replacement lamp (bulb) for virtually any LCD or DLP/DMD data projector ever made.

In most cases the replacement lamps are supplied as a lamp module (housing including lamp and reflector), simple for the user to fit. However, in some cases the lamp is available as an individual part, often cheaper than a module but more fragile to handle and requiring more care to replace.

Many of the early LCD data projectors used low-cost Halogen lamps which gave a yellowish image and lasted between 50-100 hours.

As LCD projector design progressed they started to use metal halide lamps which would last from 1000 - 2000 hours and gave a much whiter (even bluish) picture.

In recent years as data projectors have become lighter and brighter they have begun to use a number of different variations on this lamp technology, including: UHP lamps, UHE lamps, Xenon lamps, NSH lamps and P-VIP lamps. These new lamps tend to continually become lighter, brighter and longer-lasting - enabling LCD and DLP projectors weighing just a few pounds to produce several thousand ANSI lumens and in some cases to operate between 3000 and 4000 hours before needing a lamp change.

Bare bulbs

Replacing the bulb only will certainly save you money if you get the correct part and are sufficiently skilled to install it.  For the 99% of us who don’t have the required skills please read this article before any attempt is made…
