SIM2xTV 2016


Designers: Giorgio Revoldini, Bertiolo (UD) , Italy
Manufacturer: SIM2 BV International srl., Pordenone (PN), Italy 


SIM2xTV(1) is the result of years of intense research and passion. SIM2’s world-renowned R&D department challenged itself to combine the latest technological advances, extraordinary design thinking and exceptional performance into a product that is unmistakably SIM2. The use of LASER technology allows SIM2xTV to reach a peak brightness of 2900 ANSI Lumens almost instantaneously. Also, LASER technology makes the SIM2xTV a truly “Green display”: no mercury lamps and no need of lamp replacement, thus avoiding the pollution caused during lamp disposal. As an elegant alternative solution to large, cumbersome flat TVs, SIM2xTV integrates beautifully into any living space. The crystal glass(1) surface and aluminum finish add a luxurious feel to the product.

SIM2 xTV(1) features an elegant design, perfect for adding a special and unique touch to suit any room style (home, office, luxury and fashion stores, and many other environments), while creating a fully immersive SIM2-quality image when you want it. The ultra-short throw ratio lens allows you to place the SIM2xTV close to the wall to achieve an impressive image size up to 110” diagonal. SIM2xTV is designed to be projected onto any flat, light colored surface depending on your wishes.

A special lens makes SIM2xTV(1) highly adaptable to different viewing environments, and gives it the ultimate flexibility of installation. SIM2xTV is perfect for luxury and fashion stores, high-end board rooms, top restaurants and shops, yachts, museums, etc.. SIM2xTV has three HDMI inputs to easily connect video sources (UHD BD player, satellite/cable DVR, computers/ servers, media streamers, games console, etc.), and can be easily integrated into a control system utilizing its multiple IR receivers. Wireless connectivity can be achieved via a media streaming device such as Google’s ChromeCast (via HDMI).

Hand-built in Italy to unparalleled standards, SIM2xTV represents the pinnacle of SIM2’s design, craft and engineering skills. Combining traditional craftsmanship with high technology, SIM2xTV delivers a combination of high performance, unique thinking and fastidious attention to detail – both inside and out. SIM2xTV features a cabinet made of a special high-tech crystalglass (1) crafted specifically to optimize image performance. An elaborate optical coating is applied to each surface of the crystal-glass to ensure that any unwanted stray light is tightly controlled.SIM2’s R&D department used complex raytracing analysis to finalize the specifications of these special coatings. SIM2xTV is an all-digital device using LASER-hybrid illumination and DLP® picture technology to create images that are finely tuned to reproduce the full diversity of colors, up to 2,900 ANSI lumen light output, exceptional clarity and extended dynamics expected of a SIM2 product.
