i got yesterday the sim2 lumis 3 chip dlp pr
that get a lot of attention after alan and cm get
the units and report about it.
the unit i have is like the others not a series unit
but a unit that have some news inside the 2 other units not
its a good runing enegineiring sample not for sale only for demo.
optic is t2.
a technician from sim2 was with me.
i measure all numbers in the biggest
picture the optic can do.
i found 1900 center lumen at d 65.
cr. is 18000:1 with db on and 5300:1 with db off.
color looks very good right out the box but i am sure a real
perfect calibration will give a better result but may cost 5% light out
as the pr
. was very good already.
. have the software inside to calibrate it perfect.
its nice to see how good this uhp lamps can get.
convergence is not to good.
in the center almost perfect left about 0,75 out red and
right is 1 pixel out also red.
also top and down red is out by 0,75 pixels.
beside "pixel to pixel" all other aspect ratio settings show big over scan.
so number wise this unit is behind the 2 units cm and alan have.
it was told from sim2 to me that there are some reasons that are.
-this unit have a new road integrator and therefore the cr. and light out
are about 25% lower than the 2 other units.
this will change with the delivery of the series units and they will
put new parts inside that match better with the new road integrator.
- the manual iris is not working at all so we simply dont know in what
it is at the moment.
- last but important no one know how many hours the lamp have but we guess
sad that they reset the lamp timer that show 1 hour but this lamp runs
long time at sim2 lab.
more important as counting numbers is how the picture looks.
I NOT LIKE SCREEN SHOTS AS I POST MANY TIMES HERE.
as you can see in the pictures we have a jvc rs20 and a lumis at the 7m
screen at the same time.
both display a about 3m wide picture simultaneous.
i measure the on off cr. from the rs 20 with 26000:1 (iris open for max.
but the lumis is more than double as bright even when you dim the lamp to
when you have db on.
i watch about 1 hour long Casino Royal and i can say that only some very few
the rs 20 is on pair with the "visible cr." (with the eye) the lumis show.
in 99% of all material the lumis beat the jvc in cr.(visible) because of
much higher ansi cr. this unit have.
(guess the lumis have close to 1000:1 ansi cr.)
light out wise the jvc is far behind the lumis and sharpness 3d looking all
this show the lumis in a
very very high quality much better than the jvc.
for the first time ever since i sale my g90 stack i saw i picture with a
. that have no haze on.
very clear even in very dark sequences.
and this even with the lower number compare to the 2 other units
i can keep this pr
. till monday morning so i will do some other tests
i think this pr
. is a big step up in picture quality and when sim2 hold
there promise that
the series unit will be have the cr. and lumen the 2 units alan and cm have
this unit is a must have pr
. when you can afford it.
it should have enough light to drive a 1.0 gain screen till to 5m wide
if the room is dark.
that gives you when the series units have 2200 lumen around 14 ftl with a
sad for me is that the light out is not what i need to drive my big 7m
as i like it bright i need around 7000 better 9000 lumen to have my goal at
bigger than 27 ftl.
but lets see.....
