HMI stands for (Hydrargyrum Medium-Arc Iodide) and are used to balance with daylight. They are 2 to 5 times as efficient as incandescent fixtures and produce a color temperature around 5600 degrees Kelvin. Incandescent's produce a color temperature of around 3200 kelvin and look warm when compared to the HMI or daylight spectrum.

If you've ever tried to do battle with a sunny window you'll know why HMI's are a DP's best friend.
