TWO NEW PRODUCTS ADDED TO SIM2â€™s STUNNING C3X 3-CHIP FRONT PROJECTION LINE
Nothing on the market like SIM2â€™s new C3X front projection line, the only 3-chip on the market featuring elegant, sleek design and the proprietary SIM2 light engine, the C3X is a highly-advanced, compact forerunner.
CES (Hilton suite 2910), Las Vegas (USA) â€“ January 2006 â€“ SIM2 USA, through their parent company SIM2 Multimedia, announces the addition of two new models to the award-winning C3X product range. The C3X LINK and C3X LITE DLPÂ® a Texas Instruments technology-based 3-chip front projectors.
The C3X is a premier 3-chip projector to offer a compact, high-performance lifestyle video solution. Combining unprecedented video quality and performance, with exciting new electronics and software the C3X product range joins the companyâ€™s Grand CinemaTM Line, redefining home projection by delivering a truly cinematic experience!
The C3X LINK features the addition of a 2nd generation remote DigiOpticTM Image Processor (DOIP) to provide greater installation flexibility and a wider choice of inputs. This advanced and unique technical solution provides quality connections to video sources up to 1600 feet away.
The C3X LINK uses optic fiber cabling to allow for one connection from SIM2â€™s proprietary DigiOpticTM Image Processor to the projector. The rack-mountable DOIP features a wide choice of inputs (including HDMItm-HDCP) and can be connected through a single glass-fiber optic cable, coupled with a system of three high-speed laser beams, to the projector for a loss-free and interference-free signal at a distance of up to 1600 feet away. The thin fiber optic cable can be run through the wall and hidden easily for a seamless installation.
The C3X LITE is a high-end home theater video projector that can fit those applications that do not require the full brightness and contrast ratio of the C3X or C3X LINK.
With a breakthrough price point, the C3X LITE is a product that allows a consumer to look at 3-chip front projection as a more affordable solution for high end installations.
This unit retails at $15,990 (lens included) delivering a contrast ratio of 5500:1 and with its 150-Watt lamp it can output enough brightness even for the most demanding screen dimensions and materials.
The C3X LITE sets a new standard in 3-chip front projection for others to once again follow.
â€œSIM2â€™s C3X line of DLP projectors showcases a level of quality that will impress even the most dedicated high-end home theatre enthusiasts,â€ said Nancy Fares, Business Manager, TI DLP CinemaÂ® Products. â€œ3-chip DLP projectors stand in a class of their own, and the C3X line delivers rich colors, incredible clarity and high contrast ratios that ensure a stunning home theater experience.â€
Precisely designed and engineered by SIM2, the C3X achieves a unique balance between innovation, functionality and style unchallenged in the high-end market segment. Exceeding the demands set forth by savvy front projection enthusiasts, the C3X features newly developed and patented SIM2 ALPHAâ„¢ Path 3-Chip Light Engine. Coupled with the latest TI DLPÂ® chipâ€™s performance enhancing refinements, the Grand Cinemaâ„¢ C3X is the only 3-chip on the market featuring elegant, sleek design and the proprietary SIM2 light engine for an unprecedented brightness and contrast ratio performance.
At the heart of the C3X is SIM2â€™s folded ALPHAâ„¢ Path light engine, effectively re-sizing the illumination optical path to maintain length and compactness. This advanced engine enables the C3X to achieve exceptional picture quality from a significantly smaller space. Versatile in home theater use and installation, the compact C3Xâ€™s outstanding 6500:1 contrast ratio (5500:1 on C3X LITE), multiple lens options (T1 and T2), and Hi-Brite lamp reproduce vibrant, detailed images for multiple rooms, screens and lighting applications. Best picture management software and customizable memory functions further ensure the perfect picture every time.
Boldly challenging industry standards to date, the HD compatible Grand Cinema C3X is loaded with advanced features including HDMIâ„¢â€“ HDCP video inputs, amongst its 10 inputs, and an IR sensor jack. Easily upgradeable, the RS232 and the new USB ports allow enthusiasts to easily download the latest control software.
Stunning in performance and style, the C3X technology is housed in an elegant, smooth chassis. Equipped with a new â€œautoâ€ function, the C3X adapts and optimizes fan speeds, reduces temperatures and fan noise, while maximizing overall processing power. The compact unit measures 17.1 x 7.5 x 16.9 inches (WxHxD) and weighs less than 20 lbs (1/3 the volume of any other product in this category).
The C3X LITE, C3X and C3X LINK are available in SIM2â€™s signature silver-gray finish and start at a MSRP of $15,990 (lens included). The C3X product range is now shipping.
