High luminous efficiency, long service life, good color reproduction and impressive economy are the critical benefits of high-pressure discharge lamps from OSRAM. As a result, more and more new areas of application are continuously opening up for these lamps. Their light is produced in the smallest of spaces. High-pressure discharge lamps can be compared more or less with point light sources. This has many positive effects in terms of light control and brilliance of the lighting. As one of the innovators in the lighting industry, OSRAM recognized the potential of high-pressure discharge lamps at an early stage and has been consistently improving the technology ever since.
