…And The RESI Award 2009 Goes to…

C3X LUMIS HOST Triumphs in Projector Category

Miramar, FL—September 18, 2009— NewBay Media's Residential Systems magazine has selected the winners of its sixth-annual Resi Awards, which honor the most innovative industrial designs of products in the custom installation industry. An esteemed panel of independent judges selected this year's noteworthy winners from an impressive collection of entries. Grand Cinema C3X LUMIS HOST triumphed in the projector category, beating all-comers in this highly competitive group.

"In our sixth year of honoring the best industrial designs in the CEDIA channel, I couldn't be happier with our finalists," said Jeremy Glowacki, editorial director of Residential Systems. "These products demonstrate that ergonomics, intuitive functionality, and elegance of design do not need to be compromised in a down economy."

The winners were announced at the 2009 Resi Awards reception, held during CEDIA EXPO in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Georgia World Congress Center. SIM2’s Charlie Boornazian accepted the award on behalf of SIM2 USA.

“Our C3X LUMIS HOST projector has won many friends amongst consumers and the press, due to its exceptional performance and versatility” says Mark Franks Marketing Manager for SIM2 USA, adding: “to receive a RESI award for the second year running for a HOST model is very special indeed, it proves that if you design and build a great product, it will be acknowledged.”

Grand Cinema C3X LUMIS HOST is a high-end compact 3-chip DLP®-based home theater projector. The specification list is impressive: ALPHAPATH™ light engine with precision glass optics, 3000 lumens, 35,000:1 contrast ratio, Live Colors Calibration™, 10-bit video processing, DynamicBlack™, compact cabinet design and more.

It takes a modular theme for its design, which divides the projector into its two constituent parts: the projector and the processing electronics (HOST module). SIM2’s HOST (High-definition Optical Signal Transfer) concept uses a high integrity fiber-optic connection between the two units. This connection is high bandwidth, lossless and impervious to interference, even over very long distances.
