Building on its tradition of quality and innovation, SIM2 Multimedia, the leading manufacturer of home theatre projectors, unveils the revolutionary C3X - the premier 3-chip projector line to offer a compact, high-performance lifestyle video solution. Combining unprecedented video quality and performance, with exciting new electronics and software the C3X joins the companys Grand Cinema Line, redefining home projection by delivering a truly cinematic experience.
