Project Description


Wolf Cinema’s Flagship REFERENCE 2D/3D Home Cinema Projector

Wolf Cinema proudly presents our flagship 2D/3D projection system – the REF-1000 home cinema projector. This all-new reference home theater platform has been fully optimized for both 2D or 3D viewing, with ample dynamic range and stunning black level performance to properly fill screens up to 18-feet wide!

The REF-1000 is built around a next generation, three-chip Texas Instruments DLP™ light engine, powered by a 1KW xenon arc lamp for the perfect picture every time. Our “no compromise” approach to imaging excellence results in some of the finest home theater experiences attainable anywhere, from any competitive platform, at any price.

The system is delivered with your choice of four high-contrast Wolf Cinema VariScope™ lenses. These superior optics (originally developed for Cineplex use) provide razor sharp imagery from screen edge to edge, with no visual aberrations. The VariScope optics incorporate precision stepper motors within the optical drive system, enabling ultra-widescreen CinemaScope® viewing on appropriate constant height screens, without the need for an external anamorphic lens. All your favorite television and film aspect ratios: 1.33:1, 1.78:1, 1.85:1, 2.20:1, 2.35:1, 2.40:1 and more – can be stored into memory and recalled with the simple touch of a button.

Wolf Cinema’s advanced “triple flash” 3D technology option provides for smooth, flicker-free imaging from all of today’s popular video sources – including that from Blu-ray players, broadcast TV shows and the latest immersive 3D video gaming consoles.

The projector’s integrated “i-box” design (delivered with an external fan and intake/exhaust ducting) helps keep core temperatures at precise levels, extending both the projector and lamp life. Multiple video inputs, IR and RS-232 control capabilities enable seamless integration with some of today’s most advanced home control systems.
