Entertainment Lighting Solutions from GE Lighting Europe

Entertainment lighting solutions

GE lighting is a leading supplier to the entertainment industry, offering a range of lamp technologies for use in applications including stage, studio, film and event lighting.
This section details the current range available, however as GE continues its pioneering work in the development of new and innovative light sources some new lamps may not appear.

Film and Broadcast - CSR UltraViolet-Control range

Entertainment Lighting Solutions for film and broadcast lighting

With rising awareness of UV emissions, GE leads the way with its SHOWBIZ® UV-Control lamps. Using a specially designed absorbing quartz these products offer greatly reduced UV emissions over standard  products with no compromise to performance - there is simply much less UV: 98% in the UVC band. GE offers the largest range of UV-Control lamps from 200 W to 6000 W. The significant reduction in UV can help extend the life of components of fixtures and protect users from any light spill from the back of the fixture.
The International Commission on Illumination (CIE) defines the UV bands as UV-A (315-400 nm); UV-B (280-315 nm) and UV-C (100-280 mm). GE uses a UV blocking titanium-cerium doped clear fused quartz for the lamp's outer jacket. This absorbs much of the UV-B and UV-C radiation while maintaining transmittance efficiency in the visible spectrum range.
