A superior technical specification and stylish design combine to create a unique mix of performance and elegance. The SIM2 SVD 500 PLUS HD offers the ultimate in high quality large screen viewing; an experience of image quality only available from CRT technology.

The SVD 500 PLUS HD features 7" high brightness CRTs and high definition, fully colour-corrected HD 145 lenses..

Featuring the latest in electronic innovation, the SVD 500 PLUS HD is fully modular in design and equipped with the latest SIM2's Up Converter (UPC 2000). By using gold-plated edge connectors to the main board, the UPC 2000 provides superior PAL/SECAM/NTSC signals by doubling the lines or doubling the field (100Hz).

Is features a DTI digital circuit to increase colour resolution, a COMB filter to reduce cross colour / cross luminance, a noise reduction system, a specific circuitry to enhance the dynamic focus, hue control (for NTSC) and sharpness control. Convergence and set up are controlled by remote and all of the projector parameters: set up configuration, image aspect ratios including 4/3, 16/9 anamorphic or widescreen and scan frequencies can be selected, copied, moved and saved in up to 25 different memory banks.

Also, the SVD 500 PLUS HD also accepts input signals with 15-16 KHz and 32-38 KHz horizontal frequency which allows you to display high quality video sources (PAL, NTSC, SECAM), the interlaced Grand Alliance HDTV as well as Personal Computer images (VGA, S-VGA). The SVD 500 PLUS HD offers a comprehensive range of inputs - RGB+Sync, Y-Cr-Cb (component input), VGA, S-VHS, Video 1 and Video 2 through SCART socket, BNC's, mini-DIN 4 pin and DB9 connector - all selectable by remote control.
