Water-Cooled Xenon for IMAX® Theaters
Ushio, the world’s #1 manufacturer of Xenon and Mercury Arc lamps, proudly introduces the new “high brightness” 15kW Water Cooled Xenon lamp for use in the prestigious Imax® theatres. Fully tested and approved by Imax® for use in theatres worldwide, this new lamp offers up to 30% more screen brightness than competitive lamps currently on the market. Aside from higher output, the Ushio UXW-15KD provides greater on screen light distribution for higher intensities at the edge of the screen. The UXW-15KD is an essential component for the continued success of not only the Imax®, Omnimax, and Imax® Solido, but especially for the new Imax® 3D theatres.
Ushio, taking in account the existing lamp house design, has once again stretched the limits of existing materials and processes to design a lamp that enhances the benefits of both. For Ushio, this technology is nothing new. Ushio has been building Xenon lamps since 1957 from as small as 75 watts used in scientific instrumentation, to 30,000 watts used for solar stimulation.
It is no accident that the vast majority of the original equipment manufacturers of specialty illumination equipment, choose Ushio when they look for a technical partner. Ushio delivers finely tailored lighting products designed to perfectly match the highly specific needs of those OEM’s that are constantly pushing the outer edge of lamp technology.
