The Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST, the latest addition to SIM2’s award-winning Grand Cinema™ C3X series, takes a modular theme for its design, by dividing the projector into its two major constituent parts: the projector itself and the processing electronics. This modular design approach not only allows for one simple connection between the units, but also eliminates the detrimental signal losses suffered when using long cable runs from the source components in a home theatre system.
The Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST projector achieves extraordinary picture quality through the partnership of the latest 0,95" 1080p DC4 DLP® chipset from Texas Instruments, the precision optics of SIM2’s ALPHAPATH™ light engine, and DynamicBlack™ technology. No other projector technology can match the superb color depth, excellent contrast ratio (up to 35.000:1) and exceptional brightness (3000 Ansi Lumens) that the Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST is able to deliver.
Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST combines DynamicBlack™ technology with the world-renowned technical expertise of SIM2’s R&D design team to achieve increased contrast and black level performance from this new projector. This improved black level performance enables the C3X LUMIS HOST to produce images that contain the maximum amount of detail possible in dark scenes without compromising black level or the excellent dynamic range available from DLP technology.
SIM2 has developed a unique solution to achieve this, using three distinct specialized components: a user adjustable iris, DynamicBlack™ technology and a new dimmable lamp. This means that the Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST can be easily configured to meet the exacting requirements of a wide range of home theatre and professional applications, optimising light intensity and black level to each scenario.
Whether the requirement is for high brightness (3000 Ansi Lumens) or optimum black level in darkened conditions, C3X LUMIS HOST offers unrivalled customization and flexibility.
For ease of installation, a choice of three lens options is available for Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST, which allows for even greater flexibility in the positioning of the projector. Add to this, the wide choice of control options on offer: IR, RS232 and IP addressable, and C3X LUMIS HOST becomes a very potent proposition for installers and customers alike.
The Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST is performance and elegance exemplified - a true Italian masterpiece. Available in high-gloss Silver Black finish.
SIM2 HOST MODULE: The SIM2 HOST (High-definition Optical Signal Transfer) module houses the projector’s control electronics in a discrete unit designed for maximum flexibility of placement, thanks to SIM2’s HOST three-line digital high-integrity fiber-optic connection. This simple single connection can be run to distances of up to 250m (800ft), and is impervious to electrical interference - even when placed in conduit containing high voltage electrical cables - maintaining total signal integrity between source and projector. The HOST module incorporates superbly flexible video switching with no less than six HDCP-compliant HDMI inputs, three HD-capable component-video inputs, and an array of legacy composite- and S-video inputs, as well as RGB, DVI and SDI professional input . A dedicated 10/100 Mbit Ethernet connector (LAN) is fitted as standard, allowing the product to be connected to a LAN network or to the internet. This network connection can be used to remotely-control the projector using TCP/IP commands or to feedback projector operating status information such as serial number, working hours and firmware version to a designated e-mail address.
