SIM2: High Dynamic Range (HDR) Needs Brightness !

HDR is the greatest advancement in video image quality performance since color. Brightness is the key point to get any benefits from HDR technology in a home cinema projector. SIM2, a Italian projector manufacturer, has wide-ranging expertise in HDR having started 15 years ago working with Dolby Labs, on developing a real HDR display.  There are four major issues at play in HDR to get full performance:

  • BRIGHTNESS: a minimum of 3,000 ANSI lumens for standard screens. Less than this, no HDR is noticeable.
  • CONTRAST: brightness without contrast is pointless. Contrast is our eye’s reference point
  • COLOR: many manufacturers abandon proper color in pursuit of higher brightness, sacrificing picture realism.
  • SIGNAL PROCESSING: without great precision in this and perfect use of EOTF curves, pictures will look flat, and precision tone mapping (necessary to avoid brightness clipping) will be wasted.

Without  ALL of these HDR components artfully balanced, there will be no HDR benefit.

SIM2’s experience in HDR technology bring outstanding video performance to its flagship projector: the SIM2 NERO 4S, which offers 6,000 lumens and four HDR processing presets matched to screen size as well as the new laser based SIM2 CRYSTAL 4 Sh – Superhybrid with 3,600 lumens. Both offer an extended color space area up to 88% of DCI/P3 one. These top performances, combined with the luxurious crystal glass cabinets make SIM2 projectors different from all others in the market.
