The new Sim2 M.150 is the first DLP home theater projector to substitute the traditional lamp with LEDs as a light source. Its Super PureLED technology, utilizing high-power RGB Phlatlight LED modules, delivers the following unique propositions:
- A maintenance-free light source, which lasts up to 30,000 hours with less than 5 percent drop in luminance.
- Auto-calibration to ensure accurate colors and brightness consistency.
- Negligible rainbow artifact since no color wheel is required with red, green and blue (RGB) LEDs.
- High 100,000:1 dynamic contrast and 1,000 lumens brightness.
The Sim2 active-shutter 3D goggles also tout an extremely short blanking time, which promises minimal crosstalk and smoother 3D visuals. Other highlights of the M.150 include a Texas Instruments Darkchip 4 DLP engine, interchangeable lenses, as well as a motorized lens-shift function.
However, priced at a whopping $32,000, this swanky beamer will appeal mainly to serious videophiles and well-heeled movie buffs. If the price doesn't scare you off, you can locate a local dealer from the company's Web site.
