Project Description

DCD-450FD Home Cinema Projector

Wolf Cinema presents the DCD-450FD home cinema projection system, incorporating an all new HD projector and outboard ProScaler MK II™. This high performance ensemble starts with an ultra-bright 380W lamp and achieves 7000 ANSI lumen performance – perfect for larger home cinema screens (up to 18-feet wide) and higher ambient room lighting situations. The DCD-450FD provides for full 1080p HD resolution and is driven by Wolf Cinema’s RGBY™ color technology – three inorganic R-G-B elements mated with a fourth color panel ( Y- Yellow) to produce vivid, accurate color renditions with extended contrast performances. Wolf Cinema’s RGBY™ color technology achieves a nearly 20 percent expansion in color gamut over comparable HD models, resulting in images that are stunning in color accuracy, detail and depth.

Six primary lens options with precision motorized lens shift, zoom and focus are available, making every installation a breeze. Multiple video inputs, IR and RS-232 control capabilities facilitate seamless integration with today’s leading home automation systems.

Three optional VariScope 2.35:1 anamorphic lens packages are also available

[two fixed, one motorized] – the perfect choices when enjoying the thousands of films shot in ultra-widescreen formats. Commonly referred to as “Scope” in tribute to the groundbreaking CinemaScope® wide aspect ratio process, the Wolf Cinema DCD-450FD projector can be easily mated to one of our three cinema-grade anamorphic lens solutions, configured by your custom installer to provide the most immersive home theater experience possible.

Included with each system is our next-generation Wolf Cinema ProScaler MK II video processor. Engineered to deliver the ultimate in image fidelity, calibration accuracy and operational flexibility, the ProScaler MK II features 18 audio and video inputs (6 HDMI 1.4) and two HDMI outputs (one video, one audio loop through). All HD sources are breathtaking rendered while standard definition sources (such as DVDs) are up-converted to 1080p for improved visual depth, dimension and reality. Advanced E-VariScope™ video scaling permits ultra-wide-screen CinemaScope® viewing without the need for an external anamorphic lens.
