In true SIM2 style, the Grand Cinema Line is synonymous with cutting-edge technology and the new HT300 XTRA-H is no exception!

The HT300 XTRA-H was specifically designed for the discerning Home Theatre enthusiast, who demands the same outstanding image quality of the HT300LINK but has no need for the added functionality that the DigiOptic™ Image Processor and the associated Fibre Optic lead has to offer. It utilises the same advanced light engine and high quality optics to deliver a truly exquisite image that is undeniably cinematic.

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

The HT300 XTRA-H features new digital inputs such as HDMI™-HDCP and DVI that allows a complete digital connectivity to an increasing amount of video sources equipped with digital outputs. HDMI™ (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is the perfect link between digital audio/video sources and High Definition displays. It is a digital connection that transmits the uncompressed bit stream directly from the source through to the display - even high definition. It is backwards compatible with DVI and offers significant advantages. The connectors are much smaller and user friendly, and can carry digital audio.

Modifications and improvements to the software and light engine, together with the introduction of the HD2+ chip gives the HT300 XTRA-H an "EXTRA" shine over its competitors, resulting in a contrast ratio of 2800:1 and a phenomenal image quality. The HT300 XTRA-H has also been equipped with a new, enhanced Colour 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-H benefits from the usual outstanding features of the superior SIM2 Grand Cinema Line: Inbuilt deinterlacer and video enhancement (DCDi™ by Faroudja); accurate colour palette (reds, greens and blues are rich, saturated and vibrant "true" colours); a 6-segment colour 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).

HDMI™ (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a structured link which is created specifically for CE networking with 5 Gbps available transmitting HDTV at 2.2 Gbps which is unsurpassed by any other digital medium in the industry.

Some facts on HDMI™:
- Secure – Strong content protection (HDCP)
- Audio Support
- High Resolution 24 bits/pixel
- 165MHz capacity clock
- DDC and CEC buses
- Uncompressed – Lossless medium
- Compatibility with DVI output
