HDTVUK got a morning of high definition film fun at the British Film Institute as they watched a demo of the very impressive SIM2 full HD video projector, the world’s first 1080p, 3-chip DLP projector.

The HT5000 has been designed to give incredibly bright, vibrant, sharp pictures with deep blacks, thanks to a host of technology including BrilliantColor, a 300W bulb, and over 5000:1 contrast ratio.

You can read the full rundown of features and what we thought of it over at HDTVUK. Bear in mind, though, that if you want one you’re going to need a lot of money and a lot of wall space. It easily projects a 12 foot diagonal image, and costs a cool £38,000.
