Excuse my ignorance, but would it be possible to use this light instead of the typical 400w MH bulb in a 15inch projector?

What would be the difference in picture? Besides less heat, etc etc..

I thought that the 6500K colour temp is a bit too cool?

Lastly, what type of reflector would have to be used?

Thanks

Also, any other aussies that might be interested?

Hi ywh

How does the ballast wiring attach to the lamp ends? got any pics?
Are there any holders for the lamp or will I have to make something up?

you can use it with 15" projector and it will be more simple to collect all the light from the lamp.
if you move in the future to smaller lcd you have much better results with this lamp.
This lamp also has less heat.
the color temp of 6500k is just fine and much better from 5200K lamp, most of the company projector use 6500K.

6500K is color temp of daylight ( someplace state as 6000K )

it can be used with a spherical reflector like other MHs, including HQI, do. or you can use it with an ellipsoidal reflector if you got one.

it can use the same attachments that HMI lamps use. we will see if YWH can convince the manufacturer to throw in a free pair in each set (crossing fingers)

Thanks for the reply..

One thing i have noticed on these forums is that people generally use an OHP and modify it to make their projectors..

I am thinking of actually making a box, etc, not using an OHP parts, and make my projector that way.

So is it still possible to use this bulb as a lightsource? Also, what kind of reflector would be needed?

Once again, sorry for my ignorance. I always thought that to get good results, you need high lumens etc, just have to try to understand the concept being that a smaller arc lenght lamp can produce same if not better results to a 400W globe..

Last question i promise Is the main use of this bulb for smaller size screen's, would people generally use this for say a 7inch lcd? Or the people that will buy this..will they use it for a 15inch. Then, if they are using it for a 15, is it for an OHP, or box built one?

Thanks
