Dreamvision Launches the Siglos Projectors

Press Release  |  Jan 16, 2015

3D 4K-ready Projectors blending Cutting Edge Performance and Features with European Styling and Craftsmanship

Paris, France – January 16th, 2015 — Dreamvision, a cutting-edge brand of residential video products for the home theatre specialist, debuted the Siglos Series, an exciting new projector line up. Siglos1, Siglos2, Siglos3 and the Siglos Family limited edition are four high performance models that can accommodate many of the latest technologies available on the market such as 4K resolution (3840x2160) and advanced 3D projection technologies.

Raising the standards of picture quality
The most important novelty is that the new three-chip system used on the Siglos Series can now receive 3840x2160 pixels 4K. Using the latest technological innovations, Dreamvision has achieved a 60,000:1 (Siglos Family and Siglos1),120,000:1 (Siglos2) and a breathtaking 150,000:1 native contrast ratio (Siglos3) through an improved light engine. Besides, a new Dynamic Iris function is now available on models 1, 2 and 3, which x10 the native contrast. Reaching 1,300 ANSI lumens in normal mode, the Siglos can now accommodate wider screens and brightness-demanding 3D technology.

In addition to jaw-dropping clarity and detail, the Siglos Series also deliver more accurate color reproduction within billion color graduations for lifelike realism (12 bits/color Deep Color TM).

The 400Hz Crystal Motion ® algorithm is a new frame interpolation method which brings an immersive experience to sport, concerts, TV shows. Picture becomes dramatically realistic and three-dimensional, without motion blur or artifacts.

Obviously, the Siglos Series is not dedicated to watching singers or footballers only. Thanks to a new very pure optical lens, the Siglos Series create a new standard in dark colors rendition. When watching a movie, black is really black, but with a lot more details in the same time. The Siglos have been particularly engineered this way and implement Dreamvision’s new True Cinema Black III ® enhancement.

With the Siglos Series, 3D projection at home now becomes a reality
For the Dreamvision R&D team it is important to do 3D the right way, without sacrificing the performance with regular 2D content.

Therefore the Dreamvision team has improved two of its famous 3D packs: the RF (Radio-Frequency) Active 3D packs and the Passive 3D packs. The historical IR (infra-red) active 3D pack is still available, but only on the Siglos Family Limited Edition.

In the new RF Active 3D pack, which now becomes the regular pack, the wired RF hub has been replaced with a small dongle that you plug on the back of the projector. Moreover, the active-shutter glasses benefit from the latest ergonomic innovations and technologies. It adopts fast-response liquid crystal lenses to create the best image quality without ghosting wherever you sit, higher brightness, more natural colors and great durability. Weighing only 57 gr (2 oz), its ergonomic design offers optimal comfort for everyone. Icing on the cake, these new glasses are now also compatible with polarized screens, such as our 5D and Super 5D screens.

The supplied 3D kit allows easy integration in a few minutes time.

The Dreamvision B.E.S.T. Passive 3D has also been spectacularly improved. The benefits of this bespoke polarization filter are numerous. First of all, the passive 3D glasses are lighter (around 10g), less expensive and more comfortable. Besides, the picture quality is spectacularly improved: more brightness, more details and more accurate colors. The spectators feel less dizziness, eye strain and headache than with active 3D solutions. Last but not least, because it does not require stacking two projectors together, the overall budget of the Dreamvision solution is much lower than with competitors’ passive 3D solutions. It works like a charm with the 5D and Super 5D screens which have been developed by Dreamvision specifically for the Siglos passive 3D system.

All in all, the Dreamvision Siglos projectors and their dedicated 3D Kit are definitely the best compromise on the marketplace for picture quality, brightness/colors and comfort.This optimized product combination is praised by museums and small commercial cinemas in reason of its perfect performance/price ratio.

A powerful program with 2.35 Theater Mode
While the Dreamvision Siglos is a turn-key, single-box solution, it is also available with the optional 2.35 Theatre System kit that will accommodate the most demanding installations. By featuring a true Cinemascope projection (2.35:1 to 2.40:1 native aspect ratio), the user can simply switch between HDTV and Cinemascope with the touch of a button.

CMS functions (Color Management System for color calibration) are accessible for the advanced installers of Siglos1, 2 3. On Siglos 2 and 3, a THX Mode and an Expert Calibration Menu (via RS232) have been added and optimized for movie watching in a dedicated dark cinema room.

The built-in video processor is powered by HQV technologies, featuring the latest video quality enhancements to make any video source, from 480i to 1080p, look like pristine Ultra-HD native resolution:
-Digital noise reduction
-Mosquito noise reduction
-Color transition improvement
-Detail enhancement
-Automatic Film and Video mode detection
-Color Management System for color calibration.

Versatility and Ease of Installation
In addition to its impressive performance, the Siglos projectors are also a snap to install. The input panel, concealed on the back of the projector, offers quick access to a wide array of connections. The 2X zoom, combined with a variable electronic lens aperture, allows for perfect adjustment in virtually any residential installation. With the new fully motorized professional lens, the installation becomes easier and faster.

The Siglos Series will accommodate almost any kind of setup thanks to the -80/+80% vertical shift and the -34/+34% horizontal shift, seconded by the crisp, high quality Keystone. The vertical and horizontal lens shift can solve most challenging configurations.

Dreamvision Siglos is also a lifestyle
The projector’s ultra-stylish chassis was created by the famed French designer, Antoine Beon, also known in home theatre for his work with DreamBee and Focal. The Siglos come standard in black or white color.

A contemporary work of art, Siglos is also available in a rainbow of on-demand colors in order to suit any fine interior.

Thanks to a new airflow design and a better management of the power, the Siglos Series are the quietest projectors by Dreamvision ever. Icing on the cake, the lamp lifetime has been increased by 30%, up to 4,000 hours, making the Siglos Series more environment-friendly and economic in the long run.
