Trio of Groundbreaking new SIM2 Models Launched at
CEDIA Expo 2006 (27/6/2006)
CEDIA UK Expo 2006
CEDIA EXPO 2006 will see SIM2 Multimedia
launch a triumvirate of outstanding new HD-ready, single-chip DLP
projectors. The Domino D35 and Grand Cinema(tm) HT305E designs world
premiere at the exhibition, which also sees the recently previewed
Grand Cinema(tm) HT3000 projector.
The new models reinforce SIM2's position
as the recognised world leader in high definition, Digital Light
Processing (DLP(tm)) picture solutions. Not only do these new designs
deliver enhanced performance when compared with their class-leading
predecessors, but amazingly they also carry significantly lower
prices than the models they replace.
And, finally, as befits any product with
Italian pedigree, these projectors are undoubtedly some of the most
Grand Cinema(tm) HT305E
Building on the performance of SIM2's multi
award-winning HT300E projector, the company's new HT305E design,
incredibly, manages to set even higher standards. This comes thanks
to a patented light engine incorporating superior glass optics and
excellent processing electronics, built specifically for the HT305E.
The projector also offers increased light output, through the use
of a more powerful 150W lamp.
And despite such astonishing enhancements
the new design costs £1000 less than its illustrious predecessor.
The HT305E features a plethora of inputs,
including a pure digital, uncompressed HDMI(tm) HDCP connection.
Among a raft of other features, you'll find complete colour control
with SIM2's Live Colours Management (LCM) and a long-throw ratio
1.8-2.4:1 lens for a true home cinema experience. The gorgeously
styled HT305E projector is available in Gun Metal gloss cabinet
Amazingly the Domino D35 employs a version
of the patented ALPHA PATH(tm) light engine as found in SIM2's reference
standard HT305E projector. Allied to superior glass optics, Texas
Instruments' HD2+ DarkChip2(tm) chipset - with a native 1280 x 720
pixels resolution (720p) for true high definition capability - this
delivers a vastly improved contrast ratio of 3200:1. Add in upgraded
electronics and a more powerful 150W lamp, for improved images and
higher light output, the result is a picture of breathtaking quality.
A long-throw lens (1.8-2.4:1) allows the
projector to be positioned at the back of the room, recreating the
experience of a real cinema, while on-board video processing prevents
the introduction of the motion artefacts and jagged edges. The D35
also embraces a pure digital, uncompressed HDMI(tm) HDCP connection.
Again the new design is £1,000 less expensive
than the model it supersedes. The D35 is available in either Black
Shadow or White Evolution cabinet finishes.
Grand Cinema(tm) HT3000
SIM2's HT3000 sets the new benchmark standard
for single-chip projectors.
Capable of displaying the ultimate High Definition
signal at its native resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels progressive
(1080p), the HT3000 implements the very latest DLP(tm) chipset from
Texas Instruments. The result is new levels of cinematic realism
for genuinely film-like images.
The HT3000 allies the newly developed 0,95"
1080p single DMD chip to the company's proprietary ALPHA PATH(tm)
light engine. Full 10-bit DSP processing is also used for the first
time, offering significant picture improvement.
Elsewhere, you'll find is a 7-segment colour
wheel, along with SIM2's Live Colours Management picture control
software and customizable memory functions. Completing the package
is a pair of HDMI HDCP digital connections.
The HT3000 delivers excellent contrast ratio,
sharp, smooth and seamless images with enhanced colours, and greater
detail to dark scenes. And just as beautiful as the picture is the
stunningly designed cabinet.
With three such thrilling new projectors,
especially at such remarkable prices, SIM2 has once again redefined
the DLP projector landscape. As they say, the best things in life
always come in threes.
