Enhance communication with SIM2 SUPERLUMIS PRO professional cinema projector

Sunrise, FL—February, 2014: SIM2 USA, the sister company of SIM2 Multimedia, the Italian manufacturer known worldwide for innovation and video performance, takes the visual experience to the next level with the introduction of the SUPERLUMIS PRO: the new 3D active, 3-chip DLP® projector designed for professional-quality cinema performance and uncompromised image quality.

SIM2 has developed a new electronics platform, PROSIM2, designed to raise the already outstanding performance of the SUPERLUMIS to new levels with very stable and robust software.

SUPERLUMIS PRO has been designed based on the needs of the professional market for easy serviceability and extended product lifetime backed up by reliability and high performance.

Thanks to its wired connections, SUPERLUMIS PRO makes it easy to future-proof your investment by offering full firmware and software upgrades, as well as real-time adjustments and monitoring regardless of geographic location. You no longer have to be in your theater to know that the projector is running well.

SUPERLUMIS PRO is an intelligent device that monitors its own internal parameters and health status and securely shares that data with the outside world of SIM2 service centers, thereby providing customers with more control over assets and time.

Prominent features include: a new, high-power (350W), dimmable lamp and lamp driver that delivers up to 5,000 ANSI lumens on-screen; increased detail, thanks to an impressively high contrast ratio of >30,000:1 (in 2D mode); new Color Management software; and SIM2 Professional Customer Care.

And, to tailor your SUPERLUMIS PRO to your specific needs, the projector features two optional “outside-the-box” system design options: the SIM2 Sliding Filter System (SFS) and the SIM2 Integrated probe feedback system (SIM2 AUTOCAL®). The SFS by SIM2 allows the SUPERLUMIS PRO to become an incredibly versatile instrument that can meet different color-reproduction requirements—such as Home Cinema, DCI, or even other applications—in situations where dedicated color reproduction is the key technical factor. The professional probe interfaced system (SIM2 AUTOCAL®) uses Color Auto-calibration, Ambient Light and Ambient Color Compensation, and Background Light Measure for an onscreen image quality that remains constant despite changes in ambient light.

The SUPERLUMIS PRO will be available (US only) by the end of February, in a striking soft-touch, matte-black finish. Prices start at $65,000.

SIM2 raises bar for visual display with launch of SIRIO 2014: a second-generation Dual-Lamp, High-Brightness Projector for Large Media Rooms and Multiple Screens

Sunrise, FL—February 11, 2014: SIM2 USA, the sister company of SIM2 Multimedia, the Italian manufacturer known worldwide for innovation and video performance, takes the visual experience to the next level with the introduction of the SIRIO 2014 edition: the new 3D, active single-chip DLP® projector designed for use in large entertainment systems where high light output, quality, flexibility, and performance are mandatory.

SIM2's new SIRIO 2014: 3D, active DLP-based projector

Thanks to its five different lenses, 350W dual-lamp design and improved, light-tuned optical elements, the SIRIO 2014 can display images at a brilliant 7,000 ANSI lumens. This level of brightness is essential for a brighter, more pleasant daytime experience without the screen reflection typical of other display technologies, such as flat panels.

Prominent features include crisp image generation, vibrant and stable colors, Perfect Fit technology, full remote IP management, total IP upgrading and control, IP remote service and check, auto-calibration via high-precision probe (SIM2 AUTOCAL®), and customized calibration to customer’s requirements.

Systems integration is another of the SIRIO’s strengths; it can be seamlessly integrated into any room thanks to its choice of five lenses, multiple screens and ability to stack for increased brightness.

Engineered to provide superior performance and reliability, the SIRIO 2014 projector transforms any large media room into the ultimate high-tech, high- performance entertainment system.

The SIRIO 2014 is available in the same striking matte black finish used in the luxury automotive industry—the most useful finish for a heavy-duty environment.

Available by the end of February, prices for the SIRIO 2014 start at $20,000 with standard lens.

Orlando, FL—Tributaries proudly introduces a new series of interconnect cables, handmade at the company’s headquarters in Orlando, Florida. The Series 4 cables achieve a level of performance far above previous models of Series 3 and Series 5 cables, and will be on display during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Suite 29-326 at the Venetian Hotel in conjunction with Clarus Cable and Waterfall Audio.

SIM2 Multimedia SUPER LUMIS Global Success

Miramar, Florida—October 16, 2013—SIM2 Multimedia continues to achieve global success following its World tour, touching all five continents, which included the launch of Grand Cinema SUPER LUMIS home cinema projector.

The new SUPER LUMIS has received a glowing review and a full five-star rating from the UK-based magazine Home Cinema Choice. In the December issue, reviewer John Archer said, “Images achieve a sense of depth, texture, colour balance and naturalism that simply astonishes.” He continued, “3D delivery is exquisite” and concluded with “the SIM2 Super Lumis is about as close as you can get to a commercial cinema experience without actually buying a commercial cinema projector”—establishing SUPER LUMIS as a real “reference standard” in projection.

“The Super Lumis is by far our best projector, and I have to say, SIM2 has received over 250 awards throughout the world in the last decade. It is a small product with an enormous heart capable with extremely bright, crisp images,” said Alan Roser, SIM2 UK CEO. “It is fantastic that the UK’s premier home theater publication agrees and aligns perfectly with the feedback we’ve received from dealers during the Global Road Show. We are sure that the Super Lumis will become the new benchmark for three-chip DLP-based high-end home cinema projectors in the major markets around the world, as it has done here in the UK and in the US.”

It was not by chance that the exclusive limited-edition FUORISERIE recently won a 2013 EXC!TE Award from the US-based magazine Technology Integrator, in recognition of products “that stand out for being innovative, high-performing and solutions-oriented for the custom installation professional.”

Since 1999, SIM2 USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Italian projector manufacturer SIM2 Multimedia, has dedicated its efforts and resources to generating opportunities and added value for its exclusively selected US partners by marketing, servicing, and supporting the best products the professional and CI projection markets have to offer.
