From Wolf Cinema
Wolf Cinema has announced the release of key upgrades to four existing home theater projectors, plus two all-new projector and processor ensembles, built around advanced 6th generation three-chip D-ILA light engine technologies.
The existing four platforms--models SDC-8, SDC-10, SDC-12 and SDC-15--have been upgraded to provide for complete compatibility and imaging excellence with all forthcoming Ultra HD [4K] consumer video content. Starting at just $8,000 MSRP, these exciting 2D/3D Wolf Cinema home theater solutions incorporate full 18Gbps Ultra HD HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2 compatibility--with 4K/60 4:4:4 sources--in addition to a ~30 percent increase in peak white levels over previous editions [to ~1900 ANSI lumens], the deepest black level performance in its class [up to 1,500,000:1 dynamic CR], full HDR compatibility, VariScope aspect ratio memories, custom factory gamut and gamma calibrations, and more.
In addition, two flagship ensembles have also been developed for 2016, mating the SDC-12 and SDC-15 theater projectors with a custom outboard ProScaler MK IV video processor. These exciting 4K ready systems--models SDC-12 Ultra 4K and SDC-15 Ultra 4K--deliver an expanded array of features and processing prowess to cast some of the finest images possible, on home theater screens up to 14 feet [4.3 meters] in width.
"This is truly an exciting time for home theater enthusiasts around the world," said Jim McGall, Director of Sales for Wolf Cinema. "The promise of breathtakingly detailed images from 4K content can now be fully realized with these Ultra HD-ready home theater projectors. They each come with an all-new, fourth generation V4K temporal mapping technology core, which can display true 4096 x 2160 content on very large home cinema screens." Continued McGall, "But while the pixel count and refresh rates are extremely high, it's the combination of an accurate color palette, improved dynamic range and ultra-deep shadow detail performance that really makes the visual difference. And the two special editions with our latest external ProScaler MK IV video processor will satisfy even the most discriminating video enthusiast--with an expanded CMS calibration suite, advanced noise reduction algorithms, multiple HDMI 2.0 inputs and outputs, plus our popular E-VariScope imaging technology, eliminating those unwanted top/bottom 'black bars' when firing onto ultra-wide 2.35:1 CinemaScope screens."
Suggested Retail Pricing: The new editions are priced between $8,000 and $22,000 in North America.
