KOTO - Quality lamps for entertainment since 1947

Made in Japan: The products of the traditional company Koto, formerly manufactured under the name Tungsram, have been a strong brand in the entertainment sector worldwide for decades.
Technically unchanged, both the halogen and metal halide lamps (DI and DIS) are a real alternative to the light sources from Osram and Tungsram, e.g. the HMI and CP light sources.
The DIS lamps have a color temperature (6,000 K) that is very close to natural daylight - making them ideal for both digital and analogue film production.
The flicker-free DI lamps are equipped with a hot restart capability, have a color temperature of 6,000 K and impress with a very high light output - perfect for film scenes with high light quality.
In addition, the single and double-ended daylight lamps as well as the tungsten lamps are the optimal light source for Mole Richardson, Filmgear, DedoLight and LTM spotlights. ARRI, a world-renowned manufacturer of TV and cine equipment, explicitly recommends Koto lamps.

Customer testimonials
Good alternative
Due to delivery problems of our usual manufacturer, we had to switch to KOTO discharge lamps for a project, which were recommended to us for this purpose by our contact person. And it actually went without a hitch.

Satisfied for years
We have been using these Studio lamps in our Fresnel True Blue for a long time and have been very satisfied with the quality and durability so far. For us, there is no reason to change to Osram.

Quick help
We needed a quick replacement solution for our evening performance - Multi-Lite offered us a stock KOTO lamp, which we had never ordered before. We didn't notice any difference! Thank you for the spontaneous support.
