Manchester Show 2011: UK premier of SIM2's Nero 3D projector

SIM2 Nero

Join us at the Manchester Home Entertainment Show this weekend (see blog for full details), and you'll be the first to see SIM2's brand-new Nero 3D projector.

It's 'more affordable' than its bigger brother, the SIM2 Lumis 3D-S, although the Nero range will still start at £12,995.

There are four models in the range: the Nero 3D-1 (1600 Lumens), Nero 3D-2 (2000 Lumens), Nero 3D HB (3000 Lumens) and Nero 235. The latter is SIM2's first projector with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, making it ideal for film buffs.

The other three projectors have an aspect ratio of 16:9, and all four models borrow many technical features from the Lumis 3D-S. The patented Alphapath light engine has been adapted for the lower-cost 1-chip DLP architecture.

All feature 120Hz processing for 24fps (frame-per-second) material such as 3D Blu-ray, which is said to help eleiminate flicker and make for a more comfortable 3D viewing experience.

There will be demos of the SIM2 Nero throughout the weekend in the Anthem AV Solutions room in the Raphael Suite.
