GE's New SHOWBIZ® CSR STAYBRIGHT® Lamps Cater to Event Lighting Industry with Superior Beam Lumen Maintenance

CLEVELAND, Ohio — (NYSE: GE)  As the need for versatile event lighting grows, GE Appliances & Lighting's SHOWBIZ® CSR short-arc metal halide lamp line expands with the SHOWBIZ CSR1200 and CSR1500 STAYBRIGHT® lamps: CSR1200/S/DE/60S and CSR1500/S/DE/60S. These convenient, double-ended metal halide lamps provide greater than 85 percent beam lumen maintenance at 500 hours of operation in most major moving-lights fixtures. This is a significant improvement to the standard 1200 and 1500-watt 138mm double-ended lamps available in the marketplace today. 

SHOWBIZ CSR STAYBRIGHT lamps offer superior performance with a rated life of 750 hours and a convenient lamp design. The CSR STAYBRIGHT lamps also offer a variety of features to create daylight color temperatures for stage productions, concerts, architectural lighting or any venue that requires moving-lights or intelligent lighting fixtures. The lamps come in the most widely used color temperature of 6000 Kelvin with a color-rendering index (CRI) of 85.

Precise proprietary chemical dosing in all SHOWBIZ CSR lamps produces stable lamp color temperatures over the life of the products, and ensures consistent performance in all types of fixtures. In addition, SHOWBIZ CSR STAYBRIGHT lamps can be used on electronic or AC magnetic ballasts/igniters.

Developed through the GE Six Sigma process, these SHOWBIZ CSR lamps further expand GE's full range of high-performance stage and studio lamps. Like every SHOWBIZ product, SHOWBIZ CSR lamps incorporate the latest lighting technologies.
