Wolf Cinema has revealed significant updates to four of its home theatre projectors, with two all-new projector and processor ensembles also being shown off.
All of the new models will boast Ultra HD resolution and have been built around advanced sixth generation three-chip D-ILA light engine technologies. The new models however have been specifically developed for 2016, mating the SDC-12 and SDC-15 theatre projectors with a custom outboard ProScaler MK IV video processor.
Wolf Cinema intends to sell its latest projectors at a base price of $8,000 (£5,560). For that money users will get a home cinema solution incorporating full 18Gbps Ultra HD HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2 compatibility, in addition to a ~30% increase in peak white levels over previous editions, the deepest black level performance in its class, full HDR compatibility, VariScope aspect ratio memories, custom factory gamut and gamma calibrations.
The two flagship ensembles that have been developed for 2016 are 4K ready systems – models SDC-12 Ultra 4K and SDC-15 Ultra 4K – and deliver an expanded array of features and processing prowess to enable the casting of content on home theatre screens up to 14ft in width.
Wolf Cinema was present at CES 2016 where it showed off the SDC-15 Ultra 4K to attendees at The Venetian, its flagship model.
“This is truly an exciting time for home theatre enthusiasts around the world,” says Jim McGall, director of sales for Wolf Cinema.
“The promise of breathtakingly detailed images from 4K content can now be fully realised with these Ultra HD-ready home theatre 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.
“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.”
Wolf Cinema projectors are available now from Neil Howes at Liquid Technology in the UK.
