Wolf Cinema will release upgrades to four existing home theater projectors as well as two new projector and processor ensembles, built around sixth-generation, three-chip D-ILA light engine technologies.
According to Wolf, the existing four platforms – models SDC-8, SDC-10, SDC-12 and SDC-15 – have been upgraded to provide for compatibility with Ultra HD/4K consumer video content. Starting at $8,000, these 2D/3D projectors will incorporate full 18Gbps Ultra HD HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2 compatibility – with 4K60 4:4:4 sources – in addition to a ~30% increase in peak white levels over previous editions [to ~1900 ANSI lumens], up to 1,500,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, full HDR compatibility, VariScope aspect ratio memories and custom factory gamut and gamma calibrations.
In addition, two new flagship projectors have also been developed for 2016, mating the SDC-12 and SDC-15 theater projectors with a custom outboard ProScaler MK IV video processor.
More details will come out at CES, but here is the company’s website.
