FrontRunners: Light Show

<< Back to Robb Report, November 2013

    Digital-cinema purists will appreciate the SIM2 Multimedia Grand Cinema Superlumis (www.sim2.com), a new $60,000 three-chip digital-cinema projector. Instead of the LED-lighting engine and 4K screen resolution that other projectors feature, the Superlumis has a 350-watt lamp that delivers as many as 5,000 lumens through an optional high-brightness lens that is ideal for large rooms with screens as wide as 16.5 feet. The latest version of SIM2’s AlphaLight system helps the projector achieve a 30,000-to-1 contrast ratio, while the company’s Perfect Fit lens technology enables full 1080p on-screen resolution regardless of aspect ratio. The Superlumis also delivers the most fluid 3-D picture available in the home, thanks to a triple-flash, 144 Hz 3-D processing system.
