SIM2 has been involved in making high definition projectors since the introduction of the original analog HDMAC format called EUREKA 95 in 1990. The latest HDTV format 1080p is available from a variety of sources and offers the highest quality picture resolution, but also places great demands on a display device to reproduce this extraordinary picture resolution as accurately as possible. SIM2’s new Grand Cinema™ HT5000E is an ultra-high end digital projector that delivers picture detail that has to be seen to be believed.
The Grand Cinema HT5000E uses the very latest DLP® chipsets from Texas Instruments to create the last word in picture quality from HDTV sources. Three 0.95” DarkChip4™ DMDs are utilized in this design to generate a picture resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (1080p) and a superior contrast ratio of >6,000:1, to create crystal-clear, uncompressed HDTV images.

The finest quality precision glass optics are used throughout the light engine of the Grand Cinema™ HT5000E, the clarity, color-uniformity and edge-to-edge focus capabilities of these specialized optical components are vital to the process of producing the breathtaking clarity of on-screen images.

SIM2 offers six high quality lens options for the HT5000E, ranging from short-throw wide-angle (0.67:1) through to long-throw (4.16-6.96:1). Motorized zoom, focus, and lens shift (vertical and horizontal) complete the package.

As befits an ultra-high end projector, HT5000E is equipped with SIM2’s Live Color Calibration software, a PC-based calibration system, featuring full seven-point adjustment of Primary, Secondary and White Point, enables pin-point accurate calibration of the projector in any home theater or professional system.

The Grand Cinema™ HT5000E can be connected to a wide selection of video sources via its comprehensive input panel: six pure digital HDCP-HDMI inputs, an array of analog inputs, and professional format digital SDI input. A dedicated 10/100 Mbit Ethernet connector is fitted as standard, allowing the HT5000E 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.
