Original OSRAM P-VIP projection lamps

Quality that catches the eye

P-VIP lamps are high pressure mercury lamps for use in video projectors, projection televisions and other projection applications. The mercury discharge spectrum is altered through the very high operating pressure of more than 200bar, to give a dense multi-line spectrum which is ideal for projection purposes.

P-VIP lamps provide very high lumen output, the essential prerequisite for efficient projection devices. Furthermore they excel through long operating life and a low loss of luminous flux during that life.

It takes a great deal of experience to design and produce lamps with this level of quality. OSRAM P-VIP lamps are backed by innovative R&D and advanced quality checks that ensure superior light output, longer lamp life and uniform light distribution. OSRAM is an expert of this technology – and it shows.

PT-VIP lamp driver, perfectly attuned to the lamps, ensure not only the optimal operating conditions, but also provide additional functions appropriate to the device. Sophisticated Unishape operation modes offer variable light color optimized for data-, video-, or other operation modes.

  • Extra long lifetime

OSRAM P-VIP Certified Reseller Program

OSRAM’s Certified Reseller Program for P-VIP lamp dealers effectively helps to reduce consumer doubt about the authenticity of products purchased online.

The Counterfeit Problem

With the overwhelming number of low-priced projection lamps offered by unknown dealers, consumers often struggle to determine if a product is authentic, counterfeit, or an inferior imitation of a quality lamp. In addition to infringing on the intellectual property rights of lamp manufacturers, counterfeit or imitation lamps are often poorly constructed. Such lamps pose significant risks, including bad picture quality, projector damage, and even total projector loss. Thus, the true costs—and risks—of counterfeit P-VIP lamps are not reflected in their price tag.

The Certified Solution

With OSRAM’s Certified Reseller Program, consumers are not exposed to the inherent risks of counterfeit P-VIP lamps and have assurances that their lamp will match their projector. This consumer confidence translates into less hesitation to complete P-VIP purchases from our Certified Reseller Program participants.

To become an OSRAM Certified Reseller, distributors must meet certain criteria. This includes:

  • Maintaining loyalty to the OSRAM line
  • Having respect for branded products, intellectual property rights and copyrights, in particular
  • Using only truthful advertisements and marketing materials
  • Sourcing P-VIP lamps directly from OSRAM or a known OSRAM distributor
