SIM2 Unveils SUPERLUMIS PRO 3-chip DLP Projector
February 24, 2014
SIM2 USA, the sister company of SIM2 Multimedia, has unveiled its SUPERLUMIS PRO, the new 3D active, 3-chip DLP projector designed for professional-quality cinema performance.
SIM2 has developed a new electronics platform, PROSIM2, designed to raise the performance of the SUPERLUMIS to new levels with stable and robust software.
SUPERLUMIS PRO has been designed based on the needs of the professional market for easy serviceability and extended product lifetime. Thanks to its wired connections, SUPERLUMIS PRO makes it easy to future-proof by offering full firmware and software upgrades, as well as real-time adjustments and monitoring regardless of geographic location. SUPERLUMIS PRO is an intelligent device that monitors its own internal parameters and health status and securely shares that data with the outside world of SIM2 service centers, thereby providing customers with more control over assets and time, SIM2 says.
Prominent features include: a new, high-power (350W), dimmable lamp and lamp driver that delivers up to 5,000 ANSI lumens on-screen; increased detail, thanks to an impressively high contrast ratio of >30,000:1 (in 2D mode); new Color Management software; and SIM2 Professional Customer Care.
The projector features two optional “outside-the-box” system design options: the SIM2 Sliding Filter System (SFS) and the SIM2 Integrated probe feedback system (SIM2 AUTOCAL). The SFS by SIM2 allows the SUPERLUMIS PRO to become an incredibly versatile instrument that can meet different color-reproduction requirements—such as Home Cinema, DCI, or even other applications—in situations where dedicated color reproduction is the key technical factor. The professional probe interfaced system (SIM2 AUTOCAL) uses Color Auto-calibration, Ambient Light and Ambient Color Compensation, and Background Light Measure for an onscreen image quality that remains constant despite changes in ambient light.
The SUPERLUMIS PRO will be available (U.S. only) by the end of February. Prices start at $65,000.
