In true SIM2 style, the Grand Cinema Line is synonymous with cutting-edge technology and the new HT300 XTRA is no exception!
This latest addition, inspired by the HT300 LINK, has been created for a customer requiring the same outstanding quality recognized by the SIM2 HT300 LINK, but without the need for several of its additional features.

Based on the new HD2+ DMD™ chip by Texas Instruments (1280 x 720 pixels, micromirror tilting angle of 12°), the SIM2 HT300 XTRA delivers both native support for 720p, as well as a 16:9 aspect ratio for true High Definition capability.

Modifications and improvements to the software and light engine, together with the introduction of the HD2+ chip gives the HT300 XTRA an "EXTRA" shine over its competitors, resulting in a contrast ratio of 2800:1 and a phenomenal image quality. The HT300 XTRA has also been equipped with a new, enhanced Color Wheel, resulting in a very high performance with an exceptionally low noise level. Add a backlit remote control to the mix for ease of use in the dark and you have a truly comfortable and enjoyable Home Cinema experience!

The HT300 XTRA benefits from the usual outstanding features of the superior SIM2 Grand Cinema Line: Inbuilt deinterlacer and video enhancement (DCDiTM by Faroudja); accurate color palette (reds, greens and blues are rich, saturated and vibrant "true" colors); a 6-segment color wheel and finally; a complete compatibility with all video sources, picture standards (PAL, NTSC, SECAM) and computer graphics up to 1600 x 1200 pixels resolution (compressed).
