SIM2 announced the Grand Cinema TEATRO 80 projector, an ultra high-end, highest brightness digital DLP projector. The TEATRO 80 uses three 0.95″ DarkChip4 DMDs to generate a picture resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (1080p). It is equipped with a renewed optical system that coupled with SIM2's dual-lamp system, delivers a superior contrast ratio of over 7,000:1 and a brightness of 4500 Ansi Lumens for crystal-clear, uncompressed HDTV images.
The finest quality precision glass optics are used throughout the light engine of the TEATRO 80; 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 Super High Contrast (SHC) lens options for the TEATRO 80, ranging from fixed 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, TEATRO 80 is equipped with the Professional SIM2's EasyCinema software, a PC-based calibration system, featuring full seven-point adjustment of Primary, Secondary and White Point and full projector setup controls, allowing pin-point accurate calibration of the projector in any home theater or professional system.
The TEATRO 80 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 TEATRO 80 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.
