, Wolf Cinema announced the release of two all-new 3D projectors - the model SDC-8, also known as the GRAYWOLF and the model SDC-12, called GRAYWOLF 4K. Suitable for
up to 11' wide, these two home cinema projectors deliver all the 2D and 3D viewing expected from Wolf Cinema, but at more affordable retail prices. The SDC-8 includes a next generation three-chip, D-ILA light engine for 1080p viewing, while the SDC-12 adds Wolf's V4KTM technology to deliver enhanced 3840 x 2160 on-screen imaging from all standard video sources.

Both systems achieve their images via the extended-throw Wolf Cinema VariScopeTM primary optics: with VariScope and with the touch of a button, one can quickly select from multiple aspect ratios such as 16:9 (1.78:1) when viewing television content, then quickly resize to watch 1.85:1 aspect ratio films, enjoy 2.20:1 aspect ratio movies such as Patton and Lawrence of Arabia and then switch to view 2.35:1/2.40:1 films on a constant height, ultra-wide-aspect ratio CinemaScope home theater screen. And for true film aficionados everywhere, two precision VariScopeTM FX fixed cinema anamorphic lens assemblies
are also available as options.
Each hand-calibrated GRAYWOLF projector is delivered with Wolf's SD/HD video processing algorithms. A wide selection of system memories are provided so that one can quickly match the source to film or television calibration settings. A new, user-replaceable 230W NSH lamp is included which can deliver between 3000 to 4000 hours of viewing enjoyment.
Both projectors are complemented by optional Wolf Cinema 3D shutter glasses and 3D signal emitters.
Both the GRAYWOLF SDC-8 and SDC-12 projectors are delivered in a gloss gray cabinet, and provide for dedicated IR, LAN, and RS-232 system control capabilities. Both systems feature two HDMI 1.4 inputs, one set of component inputs and more (plus a dedicated PC input on the SDC-12).
Both models release in January 2013 at prices of $8,000.00 (model SDC-8) and $12,000 (model SDC-12).
