Extraordinary 4K images

Our simulation projectors feature advanced 4K SXRD panel technology for bright, crisply detailed native 4K images with extremely high contrast and exquisite colour. Picture quality’s enhanced further by Reality Creation upscaling, plus support for HDR (High Dynamic range) for extra detail in dark shadows and bright highlights.

Consistent brilliance

With an impressive light output of up to 5,000 lumens, our simulation projectors deliver consistently brilliant images that always stand out in demanding environments. In constant brightness mode, our laser simulation projectors maintain extremely precise light output levels over the rated life of the light source – ideal for multi-projector installations.

Flexible installation, unobtrusive operation

Don’t be constrained by your environment. Our 4K SXRD simulation projectors can be installed horizontally, vertically, upside down or at any angle with no restrictions. The rugged chassis allows projectors to be stacked directly on top of one another, simplifying high-brightness multi-projection installations. Auto calibration simplifies speedy set-up, and low noise fan ensures an even more immersive experience for viewers without unwanted distractions.

Simulation for the real world

Our 4K SXRD simulation projectors are packed with advanced features to ensure dependable, fuss-free operation with fewer distractions for you and your audience.
