As distributor of one of the biggest cinema chains in Puerto Rico, Carribean Cinemas, we are fully committed to making each visit to our theater special. It is definitely with reason that we have reached almost 100% conversion to Digital Cinema. As part of our commitment to create the best cinema experience, we have taken several months to assess the quality of the Philips Digital Cinema Xenon lamps. During this extensive testing we have concluded that the Philips Digital Cinema Xenon lamps offer the best quality and value for money in the market. Moreover, the recently improved cathode has further increased their luminosity. Without doubt this has resulted into a strong partnership that is already lasting for more than eight years.

New LongPlay digital cinema xenon

Philips is proud to announce the launch of its new LongPlay digital cinema xenon lamp product line, offering up to 50% longer warranty hours than standard xenon lamps for dramatically lower cost of ownership. This means fewer lamp replacements, lower operating costs and higher projector uptime, all while providing the same or better initial light output performance. Exhibition quality is maintained at lower cost per hour.


All of this is made possible by our breakthrough lamp electrode technology. LongPlay lamp electrodes run cooler, prolonging electrode life and maintaining light output longer.

In addition to longer life, all Philips LongPlay lamps feature an extended operating power range down to 50% of full power. This provides exhibitors with more operational flexibility and avoids the additional expense and hassle of changing lamps when switching between 2D and 3D projector configurations.
