Test Bench: Sim2 HT3000 1080p DLP Front Projector


The issue didn't extend to the component-video inputs, however, which measured only -5% green and +5% red. Color points were reasonably accurate, although green measured as more of a yellowish-green hue.

SIM2 Grand Cinema HT3000E Projector


Mighty expensive, but mighty good.

The HT3000E costs an arm and a leg, there's no denying that. But if you happen to have an arm and a leg to spare, you really could do worse than trade them in for what's comfortably the finest projector we've seen to date, and the very epitome of a...

SIM2 HT3000E


A picture you could luxuriate in for hours

Superlative image rivals many a three-chip DLP projector for colour realism, brightness and contrast

Still not exactly cheap…

Sim2 HT3000E


Far too pricey for most people, yet the Sim2 HT3000E projector is so good it's actually worth the money

Stunning image quality with class-leading black levels, brightness and motion ; Good connectivity ; Fair feature count

Not easy to use ; Demands that you have 10 grand burning a hole in your pocket

Conclusion In the HT3000E costing $25,000, Sim2 has presented us with the best single-chip DLP projector to date and an irrepressible example of just how good things can be in the rarified world of the AV 'high end'. So if you'll excuse us, we're off...

A superb DLP projector; a landmark performer in every sense

Product Specifications

SIM2 Multimedia presents an addition to the award-winning Grand Cinema HT range: the Grand Cinema HT3000E. This premium single chip projector offers true, uncompressed 1920x1080 HDTV Resolution, thanks to a 0,95" 1080p DLP chipset from Texas Instruments. Combining this chipset with full 10 bit video processing and the precision optics in SIM2's ALPHAPATH light engine, the HT3000E is able to reach a level of cinematic realism in single chip projection. This is achieved in typical SIM2 style through a balanced design ethos: a fined tuned system will always deliver the best results. The Grand Cinema HT3000E utilizes true 10-bit video processing (with high-definition scaling and de-interlacing capabilities) to create the highest quality video images. 10-bits-per-channel processing produces 1024 shades of gray (or shades of a single color): the result is the ability to render over 1 billion colors on-screen. Unishape lamp technology is used in the HT3000E and coupled with Brilliant Color, delivers a 100% increase in brightness (at D65), deeper blacks, a 60% reduction of digital artifacts and a wider, more vivid color palette than its predecessor. SIM2's Live Color Management software enables complete control over the color temperature of the image, via user-defined adjustments (corresponding to specific white points on the CIE chart), that allows accurate grayscale tracking. The image can be further optimized by using one of the nine sets of gamma curves available, these can be used to correct for variations in the source material, or differing levels of ambient lighting, or simply to allow for individual viewing preferences. The HT3000E has a wide range of both analogue and digital video inputs, including two HDCP enabled HDMI sockets, ensuring full compatibility with 1080p HDTV, plus the vast array of video sources. Taking styling cues from the C3X series, The HT3000E sports an elegant Giorgio Revoldini designed cabinet in SiM2's signature Gunmetal finish.
