Own this high-output SIM2 HT5000 DLP reference projector and never buy another lamp!*

The HT5000 was chosen by Francis Ford Coppola for use in both his home and studio (see Info link). This is essentially the same projector as their current Teatro 50.

This projector was installed, calibrated, and maintained by Ken Whitcomb of Calibrations, Inc. This particular sample has exceptional panel alignment for a 3-chip DLP.

Light output exceeds 20 ft-L on a 14' wide Stewart StudioTek 130 screen (minimum for digital theaters is 14 ft-L)

2000 ANSI lumens
3 x 0.95" 1080p DLP DarkChip4™ by Texas Instruments
1920 x 1080 pixels HDTV resolution
6 HDMI™ HDCP inputs
Contrast ratio >5000:1
Lamp: 300W
6 lens options (2.0-2.8:1 included)
SIM2 Live Color Calibration software
HD-SDI professional input
Ethernet connection (IP addressable)
Vertical and horizontal motorized lens shift
10-bit video processing

*8 lamps included FREE - 4 new, 4 used (used lamps were run approx. 500 hours each). Expected lamp life - 1500 hours normal mode or 2000 hours eco mode

Lamps from SIM2 are $1000 each (even generics on Amazon are $600). Do the math, thousands of dollars in lamps are included FREE!

Includes Chief VCM mount with adapter specifically for the HT5000. This sells for $400.00

Excellent condition with box, remote, and manual.

Original pricing:
SIM2 HT5000 - $50,000.00
lamps - $4,800.00 to $8,000.00
Chief VCM mount - $400.00

Price is firm (add 3% for PayPal)
