SDC-8 V4K™ D-ILA 3D Front Projector
Wolf Cinema’s SDC-8 “GRAYWOLF” V4K™ Cinema Projector
2016 Feature Upgrades
Wolf Cinema proudly announces a number of key upgrades to the 2016 edition of our model SDC-8, affectionately known as “GrayWolf”. This home cinema projector comes equipped to deliver a no-compromise, breathtaking 2D and 3D image (glasses sold separately) –at a very accessible price.
Boasting a new higher output 265W lamp, the SDC-8 is customized around a sixth generation three-chip, 1080p D-ILA® (Direct Drive Image Light Amplifier) light engine. D-ILA technology, originally developed by the Victor Company of Japan (JVC), produces stunning film-like images with natural color renditions and deep contrast level performance. The system is complemented by custom Wolf Cinema video processing and advanced optics that deliver razor-sharp images from today’s most popular sources.
Also new this year is Wolf Cinema’s remarkable V4K technology, delivering ultra-high resolution 3840 X 2160 performances from standard definition, HD and Ultra HD (4K) sources. V4K (Gen4 “e-shift”) merges two full frame images, and by a precision 0.5 pixel offset the projector can virtually eliminate the visible “pixel gate” often experienced in other projectors. The result? A seamless, filmic image that can easily fill home theater screens up to 12-feet in width.
Also featured is the proven Wolf Cinema VariScope™ lens memory system. This technology facilitates rapid access to your desired TV or film aspect ratios – ex., 1.78:1, 1.85:1, 2.20:1, 2.45:1 and 2.40:1– all without the need for an external anamorphic lens. This provides for full 2:35:1 CinemaScope® widescreen viewing without those unwanted top/bottom “black bars”. Last but not least, optimized Wolf Cinema 3D shutter glasses and the 3D signal emitter remain key options, available whenever one wants the ultimate 3D viewing experience.
