Wolf Cinema, a leading manufacturer of ultra high-performance home cinema projectors, today announces the release of their latest 3D home projector. The model SDC-15 – affectionately known as “The Cub” – is a fully-featured home cinema projector enabled for both 2D and 3D [stereoscopic] viewing. Suitable for theater screens up to 11’ wide, the SDC-15 boasts a next generation three-chip, D-ILA® [Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier] light engine for ultra-high-fidelity 1080p viewing experiences. The SDC-15 will commence with first deliveries in July 2011, and will be released at a North American Suggested Retail Price of $15,000.00.
“Since our inception three years ago, Wolf Cinema’s home theater projectors have earned their reputation for ultimate imaging excellence and product reliability,” said John Hunter, president of Sumiko/Wolf Cinema. “We’re excited to release another platform that will likely set new standards for true filmic 3D imaging experience in the home. We’ve all enjoyed the enhanced dimensional images as seen in Hollywood’s latest 3D releases, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our valued Wolf Cinema clients a stellar product that meets -and even exceeds -those experiences in the home.”
The SDC-15 is built around a three-chip, D-ILA® light engine. D-ILA is an advanced LCOS [Liquid Crystal on Silicon] technology from the Victor Company of Japan [JVC], which produces stunning film-like imaging with deep contrast level performance and natural color renditions. The system is complemented by advanced video processing algorithms, 99 custom memory calibration settings plus a precision optics package for razor-sharp image reproduction from today’s most demanding HD sources. The projector is carefully hand-calibrated at the factory for top performance in both 2D and 3D viewing, and may be complemented by optional Wolf Cinema 3D shutter glasses and 3D signal emitters, plus the optional Wolf Cinema ProScaler for expanded connectivity and ultimate home cinema imaging excellence. And like all Wolf projectors, the SDC-15 is designed with a highly-efficient thermal chassis for extended projector and lamp life. Multiple whisper fans help keep the light engine at optimum running temperatures by routing cooling air in a rear-to-front design, also facilitating a wider range of placement options for the custom installer.
The SDC-15 is delivered in an elegant high gloss black cabinet, and comes complete with a full system IR remote control, LAN and RS-232 system control capabilities. The SDC-15 features a dual set of HDMI 1.4 inputs, one set of component and PC inputs. Additional home theater options include two Wolf Cinema VariScope™ FX fixed cinema anamorphic lens assemblies that help enable full 2:35 widescreen viewing without unwanted top/bottom “black bars” [requires an optional video scaler for best results]. Lastly the SDC-15 projector ceiling mount kits are also available for further ease of installation.
Wolf Cinema projectors are only available through a select network of highly-qualified audio/video specialists around the world, and are distributed by Sumiko.
