Wolf Cinema Intros $8,000 3D Nearly 4K Projector

wolfcinema-4k-0513Claiming hand-matched D-ILA panels (LCoS) and custom-crafted gamma curves, Wolf Cinema is launching a $15,000 3840×2160 resolution 3D projector. Dubbed the SDC-15, it uses a 230-watt NSH lamp that is specified at 4,000 hours and 1,300 ANSI lumens of light output. It’s capable of projecting (natively) nearly every widescreen film aspect ratio including as wide as CinemaScope 2.35:1/2.40:1.It’s integrated with two HDMI 1.4a ports and VGA ports as well as component video. The projector weighs a whopping 60 pounds, and, to be honest, isn’t very aesthetically pleasing. It looks like a giant black square box — it’s 19″ wide x 8″ deep and 22″ long. It does have a center-mounted lens.
