Sometimes plasma screens just don’t cut it in terms of recreating that cinema experience. Therefore any luxury conscious person is going to want to take a look at projection.
Nowadays projection quality is truly excellent.
For instance the Sim2 Multimedia HT305E (wow what a mouthful) has some wonderful functionality that would be a must for any luxury home.
Retailing for £8,000 ($14,000) the system is marketed as follows:
“The Grand Cinema&#trade; HT305E builds on the performance of its illustrious award-winning predecessor: the HT300E, with improved image quality and increased light output, through the use of upgraded electronics and a more powerful 150W lamp.
The DarkChip3&#trade; DLP© chipset from Texas Instruments is utilised in this HD ready projector, which, in partnership with SIM2`s patented Alpha Path&#trade; light engine, produces a contrast ratio of >3500:1. The many benefits of the DarkChip3&#trade; – better contrast, finer pixel structure and improved motion – are fully exploited by the Grand Cinema&#trade; HT305E, resulting in exceptional picture quality.
The Grand Cinema&#trade; HT305E features a wide selection of inputs – Component Video, Video, S-Video, PC and HDMI&#trade; – and is compatible with all video and graphic standards including HDTV. HDMI&#trade; is a purely digital connection that transmits the uncompressed bitstream directly from the source through to the display, for a more accurate image.
The Grand Cinema&#trade; HT305E projector is available in Gun Metal gloss cabinet finish.”
