By Gary Reber

SIM2's new Crystal Series projectors were introduced at EHX taking place in Miramar, Florida through Saturday, March 19. The Crystal 35 ($6,500) and Crystal 45 ($8,500) feature industrial designer Giorgio Revoldini"s sharp, straight edges and glass-surfaced black or white finish. The whisper-quiet Full HD single-chip DLP projectors delivers 2,000 and 2,600 lumens respectively, with a contrast ratio rated at 30,000:1 and 50,000:1, respectively.

Additionally, SIM2 showcased the new three-chip DLP, single-lens Lumis 3D Solo ($50,000) and Lumis 3D Solo HC ($55,000) models with rated 3,000 lumens and up to 35,000:1 contrast ratio. These projectors are based on the company’s C3X LUMIS projector and enhanced with SIM2’s PureMotion 3D active technology. The HC, a DCI 3D system, offers accurate color control and is targeted at post-production facilities. The 3D projectors included four pairs of XpanD 3D active glasses. Other features include a redesigned ALPHAPATH light engine, three viewing modes, DynamicBlack technology, Live Color Calibration software, and two HDMI inputs.

"The new line of home-entertainment products offers the look and feel of luxury," said Alberto Fabiano,
SIM2's Executive Vice President. "This is consistent with our basic mission that all customers should experience the same reference quality from SIM2, be it in styling, features, service, or support. We are proud to say that SIM2 has been providing home entertainment excellence for 15 years; as we look forward, we are inspired by our past to propel our future." Fabiano added, “Over the past year, SIM2 has invested over $5 million dollars to develop, design, and manufacture an evolutionary line of products in our facility in Pordenone, Italy.”

“SIM2 is in the privileged position of offering both a single-projector active 3D and dual-projector passive 3D models,” said Fabiano. “Our initiative for home cinema remains clear—we continue to deliver the most advanced solutions our customers can buy, while pushing the boundaries of this exciting technology with advances in innovation that can be afforded only by a manufacturer with an in-house research team of optical, software, and hardware engineers.”

To mark the company's 15th anniversary, and to promote its new product line, Sim2’s EVP Alberto Fabiano will begin a multi-city tour to meet with
custom integrators and the design community.
