Over the course of its lifetime, a Xenon projector offers exhibitors approximately 20% lower total-cost-of-ownership compared to a similarly bright laser phosphor projector. Even when you factor in the higher interval and cost of lamp changes for a Xenon projector compared to the light module swap-outs of a laser phosphor projector, the total cost of Xenon is considerably lower. What’s more, as shown in Fact 1, there are no performance advantages offered by laser phosphor to justify the larger financial investment.
It’s important to understand how much your cinema projector will cost you over the course of its lifetime. By combining the purchase price with the costs associated with changing the light source, this chart gives you an idea of what each illumination platform will cost you over 30,000 hours.
