INDIANAPOLIS – Wolf Cinema is using
CEDIA Expo to showcase the recently
announced SDC-15 2D and 3D
D-ILA projector, which the company has
dubbed The Cub.

Wolf, which is associated in the
United States with advanced audio
products supplier/distributor Sumiko, is
announcing here that the advanced projector
first unveiled in June is available to
ship to dealers early this month.

The Cub, which carries a $15,000
suggested retail, is billed as a fully featured
2D/3D home cinema projector
suitable for theater screens up to 11
feet wide.

The projector is based on a next-generation
three-chip, JVC’s Direct Drive
Image Light Amplifier (D-ILA) light engine
with FullHD 1080p resolution.

Wolf/Sumiko said the system is complemented
by advanced video-processing
algorithms, 99 custom memory calibration
settings plus a precision optics
package

It also includes Wolf’s customary efficient
thermal chassis design, which is
said to extend projector and lamp life.

Multiple whisper fans help keep the
light engine at optimum running temperatures
by routing cooling air in a
rear-to-front design, facilitating a wider
range of placement options for the custom
installer.

The 3D system is based on activeshutter
glasses technology, with glasses
and emitter being sold separately.

A Wolf Cinema ProScaler has also
been developed as an outboard processor
option, which may be chosen for expanded
connectivity, Wolf/Sumiko said.

The SDC-15 features a high-gloss
black cabinet, and comes complete with
a full-system IR remote control, LAN and
RS-232 system control capabilities.

It incorporates a dual set of HDMI 1.4
inputs, one set of component video and
PC inputs.

Additional options include two
VariScope FX fixed cinema anamorphic
lens assemblies to handle full 2:35 widescreen
viewing without unwanted
top/bottom “black bars.”

The SDC-15 requires an optional video
scaler for 3D CinemaScope viewing.
Ceiling mount kits are also available.
