someone could explain? thanks. :sleepy:


The blend of metal halide salts in the arc chamber is what controls the output color.

As the bulb ages it will also color shift upward, typically close to 700-1000K of shift over its life.

The only other thing to affect the output color is filters (colored glass).

Philips makes a bulb with minimum color shift over its life, it is about 4200-4300K the part number is 85122+ (the + is key here).

Polarion uses Osram (Sylvania) brand bulbs NOT Philips. They are also very good quality bulbs.
