More so to prevent unnecessary wear on the bulb. Each time power is lost
before the bulb cools down, it has been determined that bulb life is
dramatically reduced.

Every RPTV and projector I spec gets a UPS, even if the facility has a
backup generator. OBviously any type of DVR or media server with a hard
drive should also have one and standard satellite and cable boxen
benefit as well if just to preserve their previous state.
