At the heart of the C3X is SIM2's folded ALPHA(TM) Path light engine, effectively re-sizing the illumination optical path to maintain length and compactness. This advanced engine enables the C3X to achieve exceptional picture quality from a significantly smaller space. Versatile in home theater use and installation, the compact C3X's outstanding 6500:1 contrast ratio, multiple lens options (T1 and T2), and Hi-Brite lamp reproduce vibrant, detailed images for multiple rooms, screens and lighting applications. Best picture management software and customizable memory functions further ensure the perfect picture every time.
