SIM2 Grand Cinema C3X Lumis
SIM2's latest Grand Cinema projector is the £25,000 C3X Lumis Full HD, three-chip DLP design

More details have emerged of the new Grand Cinema C3X Lumis projector from SIM2.

We first saw it back in December, and it's available now in standard glossy Gun Metal finish for £24,995 or to special order in white, black or red.

The C3X Lumis is a Full HD, three-chip DLP design using the latest 1080p DC4 chipset from Texas Instruments. It also comes equipped with SIM2's redesigned Alphapath light engine and DynamicBlack technology.

SIM2 claims a contrast ratio of up to 35,000:1 and brightness up to 3000 ANSI Lumens.

The Alphapath light engine features two key components. First, a new die-cast aluminium body improves thermal management of the light engine, which means a more powerful lamp can be used to deliver brighter images.

Second, a new tapered rod-integrator is designed to further improve brightness uniformity and efficiency of light transmission.

Additional features include two selectable HDMI inputs, plus composite, S-Video, component and VGA connections.

Both RS-232 and USB ports are included, as are 12-volt trigger outputs, IR-sensor inputs, various lens options covering a range of throw ratios from 1.31-3.9:1, and anamorphic projection functionality for widescreen reproduction of films in the 2:35:1 format.
