Who else has "triple flash" in a home theater 3D projector? No one else does Dynamic Black the way it's done in the Lumis. Did anyone else deliver a 3-chip folded path light engine before SIM2?
I think what GetGray was referring to is SIM2's propensity to actually deliver some of the newer technologies a month or two before their competition...suggesting that they may have gotten a head start on R&D efforts or else they applied more engineering man hours on development of a technology that everyone jumped on at the same time. For example, Runco, PD, and DPI all showed LED products at CEDIA two years ago, as did SIM2, but the MICO was the first to actually ship into the market place. SIM2 was also first to market with some of the next-gen DLP chips from TI.
Again, we're talking about the consumer market...not commercial or pro. It's not a situation where SIM2 is way out front and the others are playing catch up so much as they often tend to ship new stuff a little ahead of others.
