Project Description

SDC-25 “3D” LED Projection System

Single Chip DLP® With Advanced LED Light Engine

Imagine years of 2D and 3D viewing excellence and never having to endure a fading image, or change out a projector lamp! The Wolf Cinema SDC-25 “lamp-less” home cinema projector and cutting-edge ProScaler MK II video processor provide some of today’s most advanced imaging performances, available anywhere and at any price.

The projector’s light engine and precision optics deliver razor sharp images via its single 1920 x 1080 (1080p) DLP chip set from Texas Instruments. But unlike most other single-chip projection platforms, the SDC-25 has eliminated the traditional UHP lamp and color wheel: this projector produces an image via three separate RGB (red, green, blue) high-current light emitting diodes (LEDs). These LED emitter panels are superbly efficient light sources, with an extremely wide color gamut that exceeds today’s HD standards by 20%. There’s no color wheel involved and thus no visible “rainbow” artifacts or light flicker. And best of all is the extended life of the LED panels: a typical UHP projector lamp must be replaced and recalibrated every 2000-3000 hours or so. The SDC-25’s LED panels are rated to deliver accurate light output for approximately 20,000 hours of continuous use (normal mode). The RGB emitter technology is thus designed to deliver year after year of trouble-free viewing excellence, on screens as large as 12-ft wide.

This 2D/3D ensemble comes with our all-new ProScaler MK II external video processor – a rack-mountable video processor that delivers the ultimate in image fidelity, calibration accuracy and operational flexibility. The ProScaler MK II boasts multiple analog and digital video inputs for ease of component source selection, while incorporating numerous HD imaging advances: the remarkable Darbee™ Visual Presence (DVP™) technology for enhanced edge detail, ultra-deep contrast performance and improved visual depth-of-field; an advanced CMS control suite for precise color accuracy; and last but not least, our latest technology wizardry known as E-VariScope™ – the ability to quickly select desired aspect ratios when enjoying popular TV and film content on constant height, 2.35:1 wide CinemaScope® aspect ratio screens – and all without the need for an external anamorphic lens (full anamorphic lens support is also provided).

The result? A stunningly-bright image with breathtaking color renditions, deep black level performances and razor-sharp edge detail. The SDC-25 is yet another exciting high-performance home cinema projection solution from Wolf Cinema.
