The SIM2 HT300 sports exceptional performance in an elegant look. Whether you are new to the home theatre world, or an avid enthusiast, or, simply prefer superior quality in your life, the SIM2 HT300 is the right projector for you. Based on the new HD-1 Digital Micromirror Device™ by Texas Instruments (1280 x 720 pixels), the SIM2 HT300 delivers both native support for 720p, as well as 16:9 aspect ratio for a true High Definition capability.

The light path has been redesigned to further improve the black level, allowing the SIM2 HT300 to reach a true contrast ratio >1000:1. Furthermore, the SIM2 HT300 features a new built-in deinterlacer and video enhancement (DCDi™) powered by Faroudja that completes the extraordinary performance of the projector.

the lens shift provides a 16° (+/-8°) optical correction for a perfectly rectangular image without artifacts, and where high-ceiling installations are an issue, a digital keystone correction (vertical and horizontal) can be added via Remote Control up to a maximum projector tilt of 42° (+/-21°).

Also, SIM2 HT300 projector is equipped with a new 6-segment colour wheel that, by increasing the frequency of the coloured images, dramatically reduces the colour separation artifacts (commonly referred as a rainbow effect); the annoying colour flickering visible to a small percentage of individuals. So if you are looking for excellent colour balance and saturation, and you have top quality video processing equipment and DVD players, the SIM2 HT300 will deliver every bit of information in those signals onto your screen. Indeed, handling clear, content-rich signals is where the SIM2 HT300 shines.

DCDI™ by Faroudja
This new technology applies motion adaptive deinterlacing that prevents the introduction of motion artifacts and jagged edges from video signals that originate from video cameras. The DCDi™ also features patented 3/2 pull-down with advanced edit detection for exact reconstruction of the original film frame.
