The Grand Cinema™ C3X LUMIS HOST, the latest addition to SIM2’s award-winning Grand Cinema™ C3X series, takes a modular theme for its design, by dividing the projector into its two major constituent parts: the projector itself and the processing electronics. This modular design approach not only allows for one simple fiber-optic connection between the units, but also eliminates the detrimental signal losses suffered when using long cable runs from the source components in a home theater system. The HOST module incorporates superbly flexible video switching with no less than six HDCP-compliant HDMI inputs, three HD-capable component-video inputs, and multiple legacy composite and S-video inputs as well as RGB and the SDI professional format. Add to this, the wide choice of control options on offer: IR, RS232 and IP addressable, and C3X LUMIS HOST becomes a very potent proposition for installers and customers alike. (more…)
