    Signify celebrates 60 million UHP Projector Lamp milestone as it pioneers new LED breakthroughs for the Projector Market
     

    We entered the projector market in 1994, when Signify (formerly Philips Lighting) invented the Philips Ultra High Performance (UHP) Projector lamp. Our first lamp was manufactured in Turnhout, Belgium. It was a breakthrough that transformed the projector market by bringing brightness and performance levels never experienced before. Decades of innovations and product introductions later, we’ve today reached a remarkable milestone: the sale of our 60 millionth UHP lamp. It marks a landmark in projector technology.

    It’s difficult to visualize 60 million lamps but this is the equivalent of providing a lamp for every man, woman and child in Italy.

     

    This is an amazing moment for us all. The UHP lamp has been used in all manner of commercial projection systems, home theatre projectors, rear projection TVs and video walls. This long-lasting lamp is in use all over the world and has brought pleasure and performance to hundreds of millions of people.

     

    As the world leader in lighting we keep on innovating. Innovation is in our DNA and we continue to be at the forefront of projector technology. Our latest High Lumen Density (HLD) LED technology provides an unmatched combination of brightness, color performance and energy efficiency.  And just like our first UHP lamp, this new technology is again redefining the projector market.

    Today, the sale of our 60th millionth UHP lamp is being celebrated at Signify’s innovation and manufacturing sites around the world. It’s an amazing achievement.
