While digital light projectors drop in price and rise in their ability to deliver crisp images, the gulf between the high-end projectors and the average ones still remains a wide one. Consider SIM2′s SIM2 Grand Cinema C3X 1080 which is described by the firm as being the world’s smallest (by 40cm square) and lightest (10 kilos) full high-def three-chip DLP projector. It also may be the world’s best-looking DLP too, but can it answer a question better than Miss South Carolina?
The C3X 1080 gives you 1920 x 1080 progressive video, 10-bit video processing with full depth of picture, HD scaling, deinterlacing so your 24fps is of the utmost clarity when you’re paying attention to it. It does that by having inside of it three 0.95-inch, 1080p DLP chips designed by Texas Instruments, the best that the industry can make for projection displays. Additionally the unit’s software can calibrate itself to precisely deliver the best picture that your set-up can muster. If the C3X 1080 had a red circle light and spoke in a quiet voice we would call it HAL.
