Think Green with SIM2 Eco-friendly MICO Series

The Grand Cinema™ MICO 50 is a single-chip LED FULL-HD DLP® projector. Aptly named - MICO is Latin for ‘sparkle’- it offers an eco-friendly, long-lasting, brilliantly colored front projection option to home theater enthusiasts of discerning taste.

The Grand Cinema™ MICO50 sports SIM2’s PureLED technology, a combination of 3 high power LEDs, DLP® chipset, advanced video processing, and a new light engine.

The light source utilized in the PureLED technology is a trio of high power Phlatlight LEDs by Luminus (one for each primary color Red, Green and Blue) directing light into the projector optics without going through an ordinary projector’s color wheel. An LED light source can output a pure and narrow light spectrum, allowing higher light engine efficiency and perfect color matching. The Grand Cinema™ MICO 50 uses an 8-bits-per channel high-speed current driver that – thanks to a sophisticated sensor positioned in the light engine - balances the light intensity coming from the three LED modules, precisely matching the projector’s light output to the incoming video signal. Furthermore, the driver is able to switch off the 30A driving current to each LED in less than 1 microsecond.

The Grand Cinema™ MICO 50 is equipped with TI’s latest Darkchip4™ chipset and DynamicBlack™ technology. This pair of future-proof features allows the MICO 50 to deliver outstanding Full HD images on-screen, with an impressive Full On-Full Off contrast ratio of 100,000:1.

SIM2’s PureLED technology implements video processing with enhanced i/p conversion algorithm that allows the Grand Cinema™ MICO projectors to deinterlace and scale both standard and HD signals and reproduce them in full-HD resolution.

SIM2’s LED optical engine is more light-efficient offering additional light output.

SIM2’s Grand Cinema™ MICO50 projector offers a totally new home theatre experience in terms of picture quality, with the bonus that the typical life of the LED modules is estimated at 30,000 hours. At the same time, the output of the LED stays consistent over its entire lifetime, with average lumen decay of less than 5% after 2000 hours.

With a technologically advanced liquid-cooling system, the Grand Cinema™ MICO 50 is able to reduce its operating noise to an extremely quiet level. Moreover, cooling the Phlatlight LEDs directly helps to achieve an even greater LED lifetime than that typically quoted, as well as to maintain color reproduction consistent throughout the years.

LED lighting technology is the only truly eco-friendly light source, making the new SIM2 model a truly “Green’ projector.
