SIM2 is adding seven projectors to its Mico and C3X Lumis lines. With prices ranging from $21,995 to $79,999 and features including 3X Dark Chip 4, Hyper-Color, and dual-projector 3D, there’s a model for most luxury or reference theater installations. SIM2’s C3X sports a lens with enhanced optics, ensuring a better contrast and extended black levels, all with a motorized zoom and focus adjustment.
If money is not a concern for you, then you should go all out and splurge on the C3X Lumis 3D which is one of the most compelling models with a price tag of $79,999. The dual-projector model brings reference passive 3D to small professional theaters and high-end custom home cinemas. Furthermore, motorized filters for 2D and 3D content also eliminate compromises in image quality and color rendition.
Other models introduced in the C3X Lumis line include the Uno ($29,999), the first 3-chip Dark Chip 4 projector under $30,000, and the Hyper-Color ($41,995), which adds motorized color filters to obtain a range of professional color standards. The Hyper-Color is a highly-specialized model and built-to-order.
In The MICO line, the new entrants are the Mico 50 ($21,995) and Mico Connect 60 ($23,995). The Mico 50 features high brightness and SIM2’s PureLED technology while the Mico 60 builds on the Mico 50 with the addition of LAN and Wireless connectivity. Both the Mico 50 and Mico Connect 60 are also available in Short Throw varieties, offering 0.67:1 lenses capable of 100-inch screen sizes from only 4 feet, which is perfect for rear-projection or other instances where extremely short throws are required.
