SIM2’s Grand Cinema™ series is regarded as the pinnacle of technical excellence in home theater projector design. Each model offers class-leading performance, along with a design elegance typical of products with an Italian pedigree.

The Grand Cinema™ HT380 Full HD model uses leading-edge technology in its design to create a projector with true high-end performance. Texas Instruments’ 0.95" 1080p DLP® (1920 x 1080 pixel resolution) chipset is integrated into SIM2’s patented ALPHAPATH™ light engine and it is this partnership of precision optics and fine pixel detail that offers a level of picture clarity that is truly exceptional.

The Grand Cinema™ HT380 is yet another world’s first for SIM2. It features two new technologies, namely: BrilliantColor™ and Unishape™ lamp technology. These two enhancements combine to improve HT380’s picture performance by increasing its light output and contrast ratio, whilst offering a much wider colour palette than conventional designs.

Designed to be the perfect partner for HDTV, Blu Ray and HD DVD, HT380 also enables even standard definition sources to be reproduced at 1080p resolution, thanks to its sophisticated on-board 10-bit video processing electronics. Compatible with all video and graphics standards (including 1080p@24Hz), HT380 offers a wide choice of both analogue and digital source inputs, including HDCP-compliant HDMI™.

The Grand Cinema™ HT380 projector is available in an elegant Gun Metal gloss finish cabinet.
