Project Description

Wolf Cinema’s SDC-8 Ultra 4K Projector/ProScaler Ensemble

Wolf Cinema presents this premiere 2016 edition of our hugely-popular “GrayWolf” home theater projector – our SDC-8 ULTRA 4K ensemble. This exciting package matches our SDC-8 V4K™ projector with the all-new external ProScaler MK IV video processor, delivering a no-compromise, breathtaking 2D and 3D image (glasses sold separately) – and all at a very accessible price.

Wolf Cinema’s latest projection marvel boasts our V4K™ technology (Gen4 “e-shift”), which produces ultra-detailed 3840 X 2160 images from SD, HD and Ultra HD (4K) sources. The sophisticated projector merges two full frame images, and by a precision 0.5 pixel offset the projector can virtually eliminate the visible “pixel gate” as seen in other projectors.

Suitable on theater screens up to 12’ wide, the SDC-8 Ultra 4K boasts a sixth generation three-chip, D-ILA® (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) light engine for the highest fidelity home theater viewing. D-ILA is an advanced technology that produces stunning film-like images with deep contrast levels and superior color renditions. The projector incorporates precision VariScope™ optics for razor-sharp imaging from today’s most demanding sources. Each projector is carefully hand-calibrated at the factory for top performance when viewing both 2D and 3D content.

Included with your projector, our all-new ProScaler MK IV can serve as the nexus for your entire 4K ecosystem. Four HDMI 2.0 4K60p inputs and four outputs facilitate connection to both the projector and audio components. Advanced processing and signal management ensures the very best picture possible from your SD, HD and Ultra HD (4K) sources.

You are cordially invited to experience this remarkable ensemble at a dealer near you.
