After the success of its Grand Cinema RTX predecessors, SIM2 has designed for the discerning home theatre enthusiast the RTX55 TV display device.

The RTX55 TV display offers the same outstanding image quality of the RTX series, but has no need for the added functionality that the DigiOptic™ Image Processor and the associated fibre optic lead has to offer. It utilises the same advanced light engine and high quality optics that, coupled with two powerful loudspeakers (built-in) and TV tuner, allow the RTX55 TV to deliver a truly-undeniable cinematic experience.

If you're a film fan, sports enthusiast, games console addict, want to surf the Net or simply watch the Soaps the new RTX55 TV will display these in glorious colour and definition thanks to SIM2's unique technological solutions and DLP™ technology from Texas Instruments. Based on HD2+ DMD chip (1280x720 pixels), the RTX55 TV delivers native support for 720 p, as well as a 16:9 aspect ratio for true high definition capability, and a contrast ratio of >2000:1.

As always, SIM2 has left nothing to chance, designing a customised sound system for this hi-end TV display. In fact, the SIM2 DLP™ Projection TV has two built-in, high quality front speakers (L/R or Centre channel),and a 40-Watt sound system for a more lifelike sound and clearer dialog.

SIM2's RTX55 TV is multimedia-ready. It provides multiple sets of inputs and outputs to offer you maximum flexibility to expand your home theatre. They can handle your PC, DVD, game console, HDTV receiver, satellite dish, camcorder and more. Plug-and-play has never been easier.

The RTX55 TV is available in 55" screen size and Silver Gray cabinet colour.

As with all products in the Grand Cinema line, consumers can keep the RTX as up-to-date as possible. The RS232 port in the RTX’s DigiOptic™ Image Processor affords enthusiasts the ability to easily download the latest control software.
