Project Description

DLD-380FD Laser D-ILA Home Cinema Projector

The future comes together in our newest V4K™ laser-illuminated ensemble, the DLD‑380FD home cinema projection system.

Long-life Blu-Escent™ laser modules create stunning images from all your favorite sources, handled by a next-generation three-chip, D-ILA® (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) light engine for ultra-high-fidelity viewing. D-ILA® is a LCoS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) technology originated by JVC Kenwood, which produces stunning film-like imaging with deep contrast levels and natural color renditions.

Wolf Cinema’s remarkable Blu-Escent™ imaging technologies uses multiple high-output blue lasers as the primary light source. The blue laser output fires onto a special phosphor wheel, which when spinning rapidly creates yellow light. This yellow light is then spectrally broken down into the R (Red) and G (Green) primaries via filters. The light is then directed onto three Gen6 D-ILA® high resolution imaging panels, out through the optics and onto your projection screen. The real benefits here are the laser module’s extended life: enjoy up to 20,000 hours of viewing excitement from our Blu-Escent™ laser technology, without ever having to change out a bulb or re-calibrate your system due to lamp degradation.

The system’s remarkable V4K™ imaging technology up-converts all SD and HD content and presents those images at 3840 x 2160 (2160p) on-screen resolution – breathtakingly detailed images that rival the finest HD and UltraHD 4K displays! At 1600 ANSI and with superior black level renditions, this ensemble can easily fill home theater screens up to 12-ft. (3.6 meters) in width. The projector and rack-mountable ProScaler MK III video processor delivers some of our most advanced Wolf Cinema video processing to date, with multi-axis CMS calibration capabilities for precise color tracking, our hand-calibrated gamut and gamma curves, deep black level performance and more.

You’ll also enjoy our latest technology wizardry known as E-VariScope™: the immersive 2:35:1 CinemaScope® widescreen experience without those unwanted top & bottom “black bars” as experienced on 16/9 screens…and all without an external anamorphic lens!

The DLD-380FD bottom line – you’ll enjoy year after year of that “uncompromised Wolf Cinema image” in all viewing modes, from all your favorite sources.
