Hi all,

i have some question about the bulbs in the LCD and DLP beamers.


I dont know if this really the right forum for this question, so if you have suggestion for a other place please tell me.


I want to install such a beamer in a moving simulator cabine.

In this cabine the beamer ( and the bulb ) will be moved in

different ways and changing speeds.

This will be a selfmade simulator - so the speed is not really high, like a professional unit.


How much will this action hurt the bulb inside ?


Is this really dangerous for the bulb, so the broken after minutes or some hours ?


Maybe there is a kind of bulb who is resist against this action ?



For any ideas i am really thankful.


Best wishes from germany

especialy to the USA, in this alarming time.

Well, since many digital projectors are built to be carried around from meeting to meeting by us world-weary salespeople, one would have to assume that the manufacturers built in a certain level of robustness. I've not heard of anyone breaking a bulb in a portable projector to date. Of course, I have no idea if there would be a significant difference in jostling a hot bulb as opposed to one that's cooled down...

It's always been my feeling that moving a projector with a hot bulb is a no-no. However, I have to admit, I've been to amateur projector shoot-outs where there has been quite a bit of movement and jostling while the projector was on.


I would guess best thing to do is avoid shock. Sudden starts and stops, or even worse, constant vibration.
