What's the difference between multiphosphor and triphosphor?

They both do the same job however multiphosphor is a more up to date version.

Triphosphor lights use 3 colours from the spectrum whereas the multiphosphor uses a much larger proportion of the spectrum resulting in a much crisper and saturated light.

Multiphosphor tubes are also a lot more compatible when it comes to control gear.
One of the best advantages of multiphosphor lighting is that it will save money and energy while giving you the same light output.
