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.
