Osram expands HMI portfolio

In order to keep pace with increasing demands in the film, television and theater industry, Osram will be presenting an expanded, improved range of metal-halide lamps at Prolight + Sound.

The innovative HMI STUDIO line has been perfectly tailored to meet the requirements of modern entertainment productions and eliminates the need for additional halogen spotlights and CTO filters thanks to its warm color temperature. The patented UV-Stop outer bulb (UVS) made from doped quartz reduces UV-B and UV-C radiation by up to 99.9 percent, without compromising on performance. Its renowned HMI UVS lamps and other single-ended HMI products are now being consolidated under the name HMI DIGITAL. In combination with the corresponding ballasts, the HMI DIGITAL series provides flicker-free light with up to 100 lm/W and a color temperature of 6,000 K.

This means that these dimmable, particularly long-lasting lamps, all of which will soon be equipped with UV-Stop, are suitable for use in both digital and analogue film productions. The two product lines HMI STUDIO and DIGITAL will be gradually made available in retail from February 2018.


Even more powerful: the SIRIUS HRI

At booth E50 in hall 3.0, Osram will also be presenting reflector lamps with particularly high luminance for moving heads with its SIRIUS HRI series. The focus will be on the new SIRIUS HRI 550W. This compact, high-wattage light source is the first lamp in this performance class for use in small, freely mobile multi-function spotlights and is being sold as a two-part system consisting of an electrical ballast and a lamp.

Thanks to its luminosity of 28,000 lm and lifespan of 1,500 hours, the SIRIUS HRI 550W is not just suitable for use in stage lighting, but also at outdoor events and to light up architecture. From August 2018 on, the 500-watt variant of the SIRIUS HRI series will be available in retail with two different working distances: the Beam variant and the Multi-Purpose variant.


SharXS HTI series with new products

Thanks to their diverse range of applications, it is no longer possible to imagine entertainment lighting without double-ended metal-halide lamps. With its modular SharXS HTI series, Osram offers a particularly energy-efficient and therefore affordable variant for use in moving heads, scanners, projectors and color changers. Thanks to a special coating, the lamps can endure temperatures of up to 450 °C, which means they do not require any additional high-maintenance cooling.

At Prolight + Sound, Osram is presenting three new SharXS Brilliant lamps, which are equipped with a high color rendering index of 90 and eXtreme Seal (XS) technology for optimal heat resistance. The 136 mm-long Brilliant lamps with an output of 1,500 W will be available in retail from March 2018, while the 1,000 and 1,200 W versions will be available from June 2018.


Lok-it! Power Series: even brighter light

There will be a new addition to the series at this year’s Prolight + Sound: the Lok-it! 2000/PS Blue. It is deployed in floodlights and intensifies their brightness with its high color temperature of 7,500 W. It has a CRI of 80. Alongside the new variant, renowned versions for a wide range of applications will be on display that have become even more powerful since they underwent their technical facelift, like the Lok-it! 1000/PS, the Lok-it! 1700/PS, the Lok-it! 1000/PS Brilliant and the Lok-it! 1400/PS Brilliant with a color rendering index (CRI) of 95.

Also part of the series are the Lok-it! 1000/PS Blue with a color temperature of 7,500 Kelvin (K) and the Lok-it! 1000/PS Beam with a shorter arc gap. A special lamp filling in all models reduces the green tone that is otherwise common in metal-halide lamps. With a CRI of over 90, these lamps provide for optimal light quality and render color in a way that looks natural. The ceramic base also makes them resistant to high-ignition voltages of up to 35 kilovolts (kV).

Due to their compact dimensions and short arc gap, the Lok-it! Power Series can be used to realize smaller and therefore brighter solutions.


Single-source multi-channel SplitStar S32 LED module for spotlights

The entire SplitStar S32 LED module family impresses with its very low total thermal resistance of 0.05 Kelvin/Watt (K/W), achieves very high luminance up to 140cd/mm² due to the close arrangement of the respective LED chips and delivers 20,000 lumens (cold white version). Moreover, all variants generate a large amount of light from a small LED emission surface.

The back of the module is electrically insulated, which makes it possible to connect it to the light’s cooling attachment directly. Alongside the S32 RGBW multi-channel LED module, which offers a multitude of applications and lighting variants in the fields of entertainment and architecture with its different potential color and combination possibilities, a S32 full white will also be on display at Prolight + Sound. It wins users over with its freely selectable color temperature of 2,700 to 7,000 K and a continuously high color rendering index (CRI). It also uses a high-current LED chip combination that consists of the lighting colors red, green, blue and amber.


LuxiGen Entertainment LED Emitters from LED Engin

LED Engin, an Osram business specializing in ultra-bright, ultra-compact LED lighting solutions, will be presenting its LuxiGen Entertainment LED emitter portfolio at this year’s Prolight + Sound. The emitters are based on LED Engin’s proprietary multi-layer ceramic technology, which allows exceptional heat dissipation, closely packed die positioning for small light emitting surfaces (LES) as well as individual addressability of the dies in the package. The primary optics on the emitters are exclusively made of glass, delivering exceptional robustness in demanding operating conditions.

The LuxiGen emitters can also be customized using different color options tailored to specific needs and applications. Among the products being presented are the LZ7 7-color emitter, the LZ4 Power RGBW, a 40W LED with a compact 2.15mm x 2.15mm LES, the LZC RGBW, with 12 individually addressable dies and the LZP RGBW, an 80W RGBW emitter for entertainment and architectural lighting. The demonstration model on the booth features ten LZ7 emitters, each with seven individually addressable colors and a compact LES of 3.3mm x 3.3mm to deliver high color quality stage lighting with maximum punch.


Product innovations from the entertainment expert Claypaky

Claypaky will be presenting its Axcor 300 series at the 2018 Prolight + Sound, which recently celebrated its premiere at LDI in Las Vegas. This means that, for the first time, the Italian entertainment expert will be launching its renowned, uncompromising quality products onto the market in a medium price segment. The product family consists of three strong, compact moving LED lights – the Axcor Spot 300, the Axcor Beam 300 and the Axcor Wash 300 – which are all powered by a white LED engine with a capacity rating of up to 180 watts.

The quality of their effects, their construction and their high light output come from the high-end products that Claypaky specializes in. With its reduced size, power consumption and price, the Axcor 300 series makes a range of different applications possible in the fields of touring, events, TV and theater and in the installation lighting market. More lighting designers than ever before can now implement their most marvelous ideas using Claypaky products.
