Demand for Metal Halide Lamps Rises
A growing number of news-gathering organizations are turning to metal halide lamps because of their portability, light output and low power consumption.
According to Welch Allyn Inc.'s Lighting Products Div., based in Skaneateles Falls, N.Y., which manufactures metal halide arc lamps, sales of the lamps have jumped dramatically -- 200 percent in the last year. The company attributed the rise in sales to increased demand by television news stations.
The lamps deliver a near-sunlight color rendition and are available in 18-, 21-, 24- and 50-W models.
