Choosing Lamp or Laser

Laser-based solutions offer steady performance over a long lifetime with a wide color gamut and low-maintenance operation. But they may not be the best solution for your needs. Choosing the right illumination comes down to where you will be using it and what you’re trying to achieve.

See how they compare to help learn more about which is right for your application.

See how they stack up

After you have your application well defined, you can assess how the features and benefits of lamps and lasers map back to your needs.

Lamp-basedLaser phosphorRGB pure laser

Form factor

Small, light and quiet

Slightly larger and louder than equivalent lamp-based, but smaller and quieter than RGB pure laser

Larger and noisier than LaPh for the time being, but new technologies are quickly shrinking in size and reducing cooling noise

Brightness

Get back to full brightness at any time quickly, easily and cost effectively

Typically 500-4000 hours between lamp replacements

Mid-high brightness

Degradation follows a slower decline (50% @ 20,000 hours)

Some designs allow you to boost initial brightness, but sacrifice the 20,000 hours to 50% lifetime

Game-changing brightness and color/contrast performance

Extremely slow and stable degradation than lamp or LaPh (80% @ 30,000 hours)

Cost

Lowest purchase price

Great for dual budgets (purchase/maintenance)

Demands initial price premium over lamp-based

Cost-effective entry point into high-brightness laser illumination and reduced costs over lifetime of projector

New generation of products are very affordable and the price premium over laser phosphor is small and continues to rapidly drop in price

Maintenance

Purchase and install new lamps and filters at a cadence dependent on usage

No lamp maintenance or consumables (some may require filter changes)

Good for hard-to-reach applications

Ultra-low maintenance

Cadence of new filter purchase and installation depends on usage
