    pure Platinum

    5 years of razor-sharp, pure Platinum beams

    This year we are proudly celebrating five years of Platinum lamps. Its razor-sharp light beams have revolutionized the industry in a relatively short amount of time. In 2010 the first innovative Platinum lamp was launched: the MSD Platinum 5 R. Now, five years later, we have a broad MSD range including the 2 R, 14 R, 15 R, 16 R, 17 RA and 20 R. Furthermore a Platinum lamp with MSR technology has been developed: MSR Platinum 35.

    Platinum technology

    Philips MSD/MSR Platinum lamps are the original, brightest, and most compact short arc lamps on the market, enabling the design of small, flexible, and extremely efficient fixtures. The very short arc produces a sparkling, bright light that eliminates shadows and reproduces vivid colors perfectly. The Platinum system is compact and lightweight too, so it can be used anywhere. In short, more light output, more design possibilities, and less energy consumption.

    Quality assured

    Since Philips Platinum lamps are technologically advanced, close cooperation is required during the design-in to ensure optimum performance of the entertainment fixture. We therefore advise to always replace end-of-life lamps with the original Philips Platinum types.


    You will find an overview of all the design-ins in the Platinum brochure.
