A lamp (or lamp module) is a bulb inside an outer housing, ready to fit into a projector.
We sell three types of replacement projector lamp; Official (OEM), Original Inside or Budget Compatible.
A lamp housing is designed for a particular projector model or range. The bulb inside
is typically made by a major lighting manufacturer such as Philips or Osram - these bulbs are
often called Original or Genuine. Budget bulbs from other manufacturers are usually referred
to as Compatible.
Official Part (OEM)
For projectors under guarantee we recommend the Official (OEM) lamp as anything else may void
your warranty. OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer.
Original Inside lamps are alternative brand products containing an original bulb
in a compatible housing. The performance is equal to an official part.
Budget Compatible lamps are a compatible bulb in a compatible housing.
Compatibles may have lower performance and not last as long as an official part.
