New Osram metal halid lamps with UV stop system


Osram metal halid lamps (HMI) 200 W/SE – 1800 W/SE reduce ultraviolet (UV) radiation nearly by 100 percent without any loss of light output or color rendering

The lighting expert Osram is now offering a new generation of metal halide lamps. These lamps have often been the light sources of choice for film work and events. The new Osram HMI UV stop (UVS) lamps reduce ultraviolet emissions, in this case UVB and UVC emissions, up to 99.9 percent without suffering any loss of light output or color rendering which is close to that of natural daylight.

More than 40 years ago metal halide lamps took over from incandescent lamps as the standard lighting for filming. Even now they are unsurpassed in terms of their lifetime, intensity and a color temperature which is approaching that of natural daylight and are used on film sets throughout the world. This latest development from Osram is a version which has a quartz enclosure which filters the UVB and UVC radiation from the light, thereby reducing UV emissions overall nearly by 100 percent.

The new Osram HMI UVS lamps with the UV stop system are dimmable and achieve a color temperature of approximately 6000 K, a color rendering index of over 90 and a light output of up to 100 lumen/watt. Osram offers the HMI UVS lamps in seven versions with wattages from 200 to 1800 W for different applications in the film, TV and studio sectors. For more information go to
