Miramar, FL—December 30, 2011—As SIM2 closes out a landmark year, the company looks to continue its momentum in 2012, beginning with the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show.

ON SET WITH SIM2

December 21, 2011 – SIM2, the Italian DLP Projector Manufacturer, has accomplished yet another important mission…. When a request came in a few months ago for the shipping of a LUMIS projector that was to be used during production of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL, the SIM2 team sprang into action. The expedient delivery of a fully calibrated unit to the film’s shooting location in Prague was accomplished in less than 8 hours from factory to screening room!

The filmmakers and cast were able to screen footage in perfect color reproduction and brightness worthy of a studio’s screening room, whilst still on location. “It was through the skills of a team of seasoned professionals that we were able to provide the solution for this request promptly,” states Alberto Fabiano Executive Vice President of SIM2 USA. “When we received the call, the entire organization, on both sides of the Atlantic, treated the request with immediate attention and care. As such, SIM2 was once again able to deliver with promptness, precision and professionalism.”

About MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL
This holiday season, two-time Academy Award®-winner Brad Bird directs, with producers Tom Cruise and J.J. Abrams, the action-packed spy adventure Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.

Blamed for the terrorist bombing of the Kremlin, IMF operative Ethan Hunt is disavowed along with the rest of the agency when the President initiates “Ghost Protocol.” Left without any resources or backup, Ethan must find a way to clear his agency’s name and prevent another attack. To complicate matters further, Ethan is forced to embark on this mission with a team of fellow IMF fugitives whose personal motives he does not fully know.

Tom Cruise returns in the starring role as Ethan Hunt and is joined by an international cast that includes Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov, Josh Holloway, Anil Kapoor and Léa Seydoux. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is directed by Brad Bird, in his live action film debut, and written by Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec. Cruise, who produces the Mission: Impossible films, is joined by producers J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk. The film was co-financed by Skydance Productions. Jeffrey Chernov, David Ellison, Paul Schwake and Dana Goldberg are the executive producers.
