    I've been reading that say a 1000 lumen projector using a UHM bulb will not produce the same light output as a 1000 lumen UHP bulb. And what about UHE bulbs?

    So, if Lumen ratings can be visibly different based on the technology they use on the bulb at the same rated lumen then how are we to judge lumens when reading a projector review.

    Anybody out there provide an explanation?

    Im hoping for some kind of answer like "1000 Lumen UHM bulb would actualy be as bright as a 1200 lumen UHP bulb" or along those lines.

    Thanks

    It's not just the brightness, I think the different types of lamps offer different white / green reproduction levels. UHP is also a Philips trademark, so the other technologies mentioned are probably Osram,etc naming for the same technology???
