Digital Projection Offers Free Lamp Replacement Warranty

Digital Projection is offering free lamp replacements for clients who purchase HIGHlite and Titan projectors by June 30, 2013.

We’re big fans of projection-based home theaters and media rooms, obviously. But we know some of your clients are hesitant to make the leap from a flat-panel TV to a big screen a projector.

Well, Digital Projection Inc. is offering free replacement lamps to make that decision a little easier.

The typical lamp life on a DLP projector is about 2,000 hours, and that will vary depending on the viewing mode and other conditions. Replacing that lamp can cost a few hundred dollars (or a lot more, depending on the projector).

Digital Projection is making this new peace-of-mind offer, called Lamp Freedom, for a limited time - between May 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013 for buyers of HIGHlite and Titan projectors. The offer is good for the second and third year of the projector’s three-year warranty, because presumably if a lamp burns on in the first year there’s something else wrong or maybe your client just needs to spend more time outside.

How much will this actually apply to clients? That depends on how much they use the projector. If it’s in a dedicated theater room and is only used for special occasions or weekend movie nights, then they likely won’t burn out a lamp before the warranty is over. If the projector is in a multipurpose or media room and is used more like a TV, then your client will benefit from this program.

I use my projector about 14 hours a week, which over three years puts the lamp hours just a little over 2,000. It’s perfectly plausible in a situation like that, especially if the projector is driven hard in a high-brightness mode, that the lamp will give out before the warranty.

To qualify, clients must purchase and take delivery of HIGHlite and TITAN 3-chip projectors by 6/30. This qualifies them to order one set of replacement lamps, at no cost, in each of years 2 and 3.
