SIM2 C3X 1080 DLP Projector

SIM2 introduced its next generation design of the award-winning Grand Cinema C3X 1080 projector. The 17-inch-square, 22-pound C3X 1080 is housed in a high-gloss sculpted cabinet designed by Giorgio Revoldini with the company’s trademark, flowing lines. The projector is based on a trio of the latest 0.95-inch, 1080p DLP chipsets (with new DarkChip4 technology) from Texas Instruments. The three-chip SIM2 design further exploits improved all-glass optics in SIM2’s proprietary ALPHAPATH light engine to form a system able to deliver full-HD, 1920x1080 progressive video.

The C3X 1080 has full-depth 10-bit video processing, with HD scaling and deinterlacing capabilities, and maintains 1080p/24fps full-HD purity under actual content-playback conditions. The SIM2’s newly developed, advanced color-management software is available to permit installers and calibrators to precisely match each projector to its home theater environment, with near total control over color, and white-point coordinates, gamma correction, and more.

The C3X 1080 delivers two selectable HDMI inputs (both fully HDCP-compliant), as well as inputs for legacy formats component-, S-, and composite-video, as well as RGB connection. Both RS-232 serial and USB ports are included to ease connectivity for control and software/firmware communications, and even an optical digital-audio, and 12-volt-trigger outputs and IR-sensor inputs are on board for total flexibility of installation and control.
