SIM2’s M.150 LED Projector is Bright Enough for Well-Lit Rooms

The M.150 LED projector from SIM2 incorporates TI's 1920x1080 0.95 DarkChip4 chipset and the company's SuperPure light engine to help it produce up to 1,000 lumens of brightness and to exceed the Rec 709 and Adobe RGB color standard specifications.

SIM2's M.150 LED projector eliminates the need for bulbs, and the Italian video manufacturer points out that the projector can be used for a variety of A/V systems that range from dedicated theaters to multipurpose systems in non-traditional environments.

For well over a decade the Italian video manufacturer SIM2 has taken a different approach than what its peers within the high-performance video market have taken. SIM2’s approach includes an emphasis on industrial design and the use of its own light engines and software.

The company’s M.150 projector incorporates the company’s latest industrial designs, as well as its latest LED light engine technologies. At the heart of the projector is a Texas Instruments’ Dark Chip4 1920x1080 DLP chipset and Luminus’ Phlatlight LED technologies that help to make up its Super PureLED light engine. The projector’s light path is augmented by a choice of lens options that help the projector to produce a quality image in a variety of applications.

SIM2 states the projector is capable of producing up to 1,000 lumens of brightness and a contrast ratio up to 100,000:1 through the use of its DynamicBlack technologies. The Italian company explains that it has also engineered the projector to be able to produce 128 percent of the NTSC and Rec 709 HD color standards, and because of its color standard capabilities, it can also reproduce the Adobe RGB standard.

In addition to its 2D image options, the active 3D projector also offers a choice of 3D color modes to help electronics professionals to match its 3D performance to the projector’s room environment or to specific client preferences. SIM2 points out the green-friendly, LED-based projector has a life expectancy of up to 30,000 hours, which far exceeds any lamp-based product, and that because of its latest light engine advancements, the M.150 can be used in a number of rooms that range from traditional dedicated home theaters, to multipurpose multimedia rooms.

Beyond its standard features the projector also includes lens shift options, RS-232 and IR control options, processing modes for 2D and 3D that ensure smooth, artifact-free images, and a choice of aspect ratios that includes 4:3, 16:9 and anamorphic.
