SIM2’s Grand Cinema™ series is the pinnacle of technical excellence in home theater projector design. Combining, as it does; a light engine with superior glass optics, the best processing electronics and a wealth of design experience gained in the home theater projector market, to create the truly exceptional products within this range.

The Grand Cinema™ HT305E builds on the performance of its illustrious award-winning predecessor: the HT300E, with improved image quality and increased light output, through the use of upgraded electronics and a more powerful 150W lamp.

The DarkChip3™ DLP® chipset from Texas Instruments is utilized in this HD ready projector, which, in partnership with SIM2’s patented Alpha Path™ light engine, produces a contrast ratio of >3500:1. The many benefits of the DarkChip3™ – better contrast, finer pixel structure and improved motion - are fully exploited by the Grand Cinema™ HT305E, resulting in exceptional picture quality.

The Grand Cinema™ HT305E features a wide selection of inputs – Component Video, Video, S-Video, PC and HDMI™ - and is compatible with all video and graphic standards including HDTV. HDMI™ is a purely digital connection that transmits the uncompressed bitstream directly from the source through to the display, for a more accurate image.

The Grand Cinema™ HT305E projector is available in Gun Metal gloss cabinet finish.
