USHIO America Introduces its L-Series (Long Life) DXL Digital Xenon lamps
(April 2012)
USHIO has quickly become the leading xenon lamp manufacturer for today’s digital cinema projectors from Barco, NEC, and Sony. USHIO’s DXL series of digital xenon lamps achieve the highest performance for digital cinema projection. Digital cinema projectors have a more complex optical system than that of film projectors and require lamps with much higher brightness and a more stable arc. USHIO’s DXL series are 20-50% brighter than that of standard film lamps of the same wattages. DXL lamps are optimized to meet technical standards especially for digital 3-D screenings.

USHIO has a series of new L-series (long life) lamps for the Barco projectors. The new DXL-30BAF/L extends the warranty from 1500 hours to 1700 hours and is available from inventory this month. A wide variety of new L-series (long life) lamps will be available this summer for Barco projectors.

In addition, USHIO will be introducing two new L-series (long life) lamps for the NEC projectors early this summer. The new DXL-45SN/L extends the warranty from 1,000 hours to 1,300 hours; and the new DXL-60SN/L extends the warranty from 600 hours to 800 hours. New lamp types will also include DXL-12SN, DXL-15SN, DXL-30SN2 and the DXL-21SN3 and are all approved by NEC for use in their projectors.
