At CES, SIM2 hosted an invitation-only press unveiling of its projector based on the company’s ALPHAPATH light engine platform, 3-chip DLP technology, and China’s OV-LaserTec’s RGB pure-laser “despeckle” technology. The projector is expected to deliver up to 12,000 ANSI lumens, expanded color gamut, and lower cost of operation.
OV-LaserTec developed its high-efficiency pure RGB laser light illumination engine with sparkle reduction technology. The end goal is to eliminate the first speckle, the speckled speckle, and the color speckle, with no optical power loss by applying OV-LaserTec’s despeckle solutions. A dust-free structure and an accurate cooling system provide will provide high reliability, stable, and safe performance, the companies say.
The re-engineered version of SIM2’s ALPHAPATH light engine, coupled with OV-LaserTec’s technology and SIM2’s calibration software are meant to offer better color depth, contrast ratio, and a smoother, natural, and fatigue-free viewing experience, also in 3D mode.
The companies expect to deliver the joint solution to the market in late summer 2015.
SIM2 also has introduced the NERO 3, the third LED projector in its portfolio. NERO 3 and NERO3 ST (short throw ratio) incorporates a solid-state light source (SIM2 PureLED), and single-chip DLP technology to deliver 1,400 lumens of light output (the equivalent of 2,000 lumens on lamp-based projectors), a 30,000:1 contrast ratio, and a color gamut 135 percent that of the NTSC TV standard.
