Electronics giant Philips has taken the wraps off its latest LCD projectors, boasting new bulb technology that lasts four times longer than rival metal halide offerings. The ProScreen 4600 Impact and 4600 Endurance sport new 120W and 100W UHP lamps that offer 650 and 500 Ansi Lumens, respectively. This is a 30% improvement over current 4600 bulbs and represents a lifetime of 2,000 hours, or four years use at two hours per day. The 100W UHP lamp in the Endurance increases light intensity by 11% giving a massive life expectance of 8,000 hours - four times longer than traditional metal halide lamps. Endurance is aimed at educational and training centres where projectors are used continuously. Philips is targeting the Impact, meanwhile, at mobile executives and presenters who demand high brightness in places where they have no contol over lighting conditions.[ In addition, Philips has launched its wide-screen ProScreen Ceramic Quartz Screen, which touts 100% resistance to scratches, cuts and heat. Its slightly curved shape offers a 180 degree viewing angle and comes in with an #800 price tag. ProScreen Impact and ProScreen Endurance are available immediately and both are priced at #5,495.
