  • Patented ALPHAPATH™ compact Die-Cast light engine with precision glass optics
  • SIM2 active 3D technology
  • Maximum Brightness of 2,000 ANSI Lumens

In the NERO, SIM2’s renowned product development team has created a projector line with the color accuracy and image clarity normally only associated with larger and more costly projectors, which is quite an achievement. That such a compact chassis can generate the image quality of these larger projectors is very impressive; that it also outperforms many of them, in terms of color rendition and contrast ratio, is quite exceptional. NERO has the perfect balance of power, precision and innovation.
SIM2 has taken the same high quality optics and electronics from our renowned 3-Chip LUMIS line to create a state-of –the-art the single-chip DLP projector series. Partnering the latest DLP® chipset with SIM2’s new ALPHAPATH™ light engine - with its precision glass optics - produces images with excellent clarity and realism. The NERO has a powerful 280W lamp, which delivers up to 3000 ANSI lumens on-screen and a contrast ratio of up to 30,000:1.
The NERO Line is designed for use in Reference Home Theaters, Media Rooms and Family/Games Rooms – in both 2D and 3D*.
SIM2’s NERO projectors utilize SIM2 active 3D technology, with advanced processing electronics to ensure that your 3D viewing is free from the flickering, ghosting and motion "shudder" suffered by most 3D displays to bring the real cinema 3D experience into your home.
For ease of installation, a choice of three high quality glass lenses (T1, T2 & T3) is available for the NERO Line, giving the projectors a total throw ratio of 1.37-3.9:1.


The sleek black cabinet exudes quality, whilst the technology within exceeds expectation. Its compact size and curvaceous good looks make NERO 3D-2 very room-friendly. Bright, colorful images with a level of clarity to rival the best movie theaters are all made possible thanks to SIM2’s patented optical light engine and advanced processing electronics.
The NERO 3D-2 adds DynamicBlack™ to an already impressive list of features found in the NERO 3D1.
This additional feature improves black level performance and contrast ratio (up to 30,000:1), making shadow detail and picture dynamics look even more realistic. The NERO 3D-2 sets new standards for single-chip DLP® projection, with PureMovie and PureMotion user modes optimized for 2D and 3D* viewing.

Special Features

New Live Colors Calibration 2.0 Software

To aid calibration, the LUMIS 3D-S, Cinema, and NERO projectors – as well as the MICO 150 model - feature the new SIM2’s advanced Live Colors Calibration 2.0 software that enables professional calibration of all projection parameters such as complete adjustment of the primary, secondary and white point color coordinates. This PC-based software gives calibration experts unprecedented control over the projector image quality. The image can be further optimized by using one of the four sets of gamma curves available. These can be used to correct for variations in the source material, differing levels of ambient lighting
or simply to allow for individual viewing preferences.

LCC2 New Features:
• 2 memories per 2D/3D mode – Total of four
• Target gamut and white point information
• Color probe feedback from X-rite Hubble
• Automatic colors adjustments with feedback from color probe X-rite Hubble
- Auto-Adj. Coordinate x,y
- Auto-Adj. Gains
• Projector status alignment
• Native projector colors measure and update
• Available commands to pre-adjusting projector image (bright., contrast and gamma)
• 2 user gamma customization for 2D/3D mode
• More powerful color management panels

DynamicBlack™ technology

The DynamicBlack™ technology, coupled with the world renowned
precision optics of SIM2’s ALPHAPATH™ light engine and the latest DLP® chipsets, delivers enhanced contrast and black level performance.
This improved black level enables the projectors 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: enhanced DynamicBlack™ technology, a user-adjustable iris and a new dimmable lamp.

SIM2 optical specialists designed a dynamic iris in a non-symmetric and folded shape powered by an ultrafast step motor (similar to those used in hard disc drives), in order to prevent unwanted stray light from contaminating the purity of the optical light path.
DynamicBlack™ automatically adjusts the dynamic iris position, relative to the picture content, with microsecond precision, extending the depth of black level and providing richer detail in dark scenes. This extended dynamic range produces a more life-like, three-dimensional quality to the final image.

SIM2’s PureMovie & PureMotion

SIM2’s engineers have designed the 3D active system models with three user modes, each optimized for the various demands of movie, sports and 3D viewing:
• PureMovie (2D): allows a pure presentation of the signal coming from your source: all but the most basic circuitry is bypassed in order to ensure a more “film-like” viewing experience. SIM2’s PureMovie allows the delivery of the widest contrast ratio and deepest black level performance from the projector.
• PureMotion (2D): has been specifically designed for fast-motion video material, resulting in smooth motion, free from the "smear" or "judder" that can affect the image. The PureMotion mode is particularly suited to fast-action sports viewing, where the ability to easily follow the action, regardless of its intensity, is paramount.
• PureMotion 3D: is SIM2’s implemententation of the next level in reality reproduction: 3D video visualization. PureMotion includes the state-of-the-art of 3D technologies in order to ensure 3D viewing free of flickering, ghosting and motion “shudder” suffered by most 3D displays.

(1)ANSI Lumen Specification: This is the typical projector brightness specification found in most sales literature. This measurement allows for direct comparison with other manufacturer’s projectors. Measurements are taken in a totally dark test room with T3 type lens (wide angle zoom settings), brand new lamp at full power, lamp’s native white color temperature, internal test pattern (full white) and in compliance with ANSI IT7.228-1997 specification.

(2)Lamp life: the hours quoted have been measured in a lab under ideal test conditions. Lamp life varies depending on usage conditions and the surrounding environment. This is an average value that cannot be guaranteed and is not protected by warranty.
