Frequently Asked Questions


How does it compare to the Dimplex Revillusion?

MagikFlame is a very different fireplace than the Dimplex Revolution. For instance, the Dimplex Revolution uses a mechanical means to recreate the look of fire while the MagikFlame uses a state-of-the-art holographic projection technology. With the Revolution, the technology consists of a cheap Chinese electric motor that will rotate a spindle with some chrome reflectors to reflect light through a flame-like silhouette and onto a mirror-like screen. These reflected lights will create a blur of a flame-like shape that kind of looks like fire, but not really. In a bright room, the brilliance of the flames is washed out and diminished. They use a mirror to reflect the log set to make it look like the flames are coming from in between the logs. However, it’s obvious that you are looking at a reflection of a log set and the effect is very cheesy and looks fake.

The MagikFlame on the other hand uses a completely different technology. We’ve spent five years of research and development to create our patented holographic projection technology. With our fireplace we take a real video of actual fire and project those flames onto a physical log set, making it look like those logs are actually burning. Because we use real fire for the basis of our technology, instead of a mechanical effect, our flames look real because they are real! With our fireplace, you get all the beautiful realistic details of fire like the way the flames move organically, as well as rising and burning embers, and even wispy smoke that rolls up off of the logs. We also have the sound of crackling and popping logs to accompany the flames for an immersive experience. There is no doubt that the flame effects from a MagikFlame will absolutely smoke the Dimplex Revolution.
