SIM2 Turns Fifteen
All of SIM2's projectors are DLP designs. The new models fall into five different ranges: CRYSTAL, MICO, NERO, LUMIS, and CINEMA. The CRYSTAL range (2D only) consists of two entries, the $6500 Crystal 35 and the $8500 Crystal 45. To our recollection, these are nearly blue light specials for a manufacturer which is not normally known for relatively affordable projectors.
The NERO lineup's four 3D offerings start at $19,990. Among them is the NERO 235, with a "scope" chip capable of high resolution, 2.35:1 projection without the need for an anamorphic lens. All the models in this range give the buyer a choice of three different high quality glass lenses.
SIM2's LED-illuminated, 3D projectors are all in the MICO range, with prices starting at $23,000. According to SIM2, this is the world's first line of active 3D LED projectors.
The Lumis range, starting at $38,000, and the Cinema line, starting at $90,000, are SIM2's 3-chip offerings, with prices to match their ambitions.
