Before it entered the market a few years ago the Berkeley, Calif.-based video manufacturer Wolf Cinema wanted to examine some of the most common problems that affect the quality of home cinema in order to better serve its dealers’ ability to meet their clients needs.

What Wolf found was that many projectors didn’t have proper ventilation and that many consumers didn’t care for the aesthetics of having a projector with an external lens. What the company did in turn was to develop a full line of products that incorporates provisions for proper cooling and a unique approach to anamorphic aspect ratios. Building upon that foundation Wolf Cinema recently updated its product line through the introduction of two new flagship products: The REF-700 and the REF-1000. These new products are powered by Cermax Xenon arc lamps, three-chip DLP light engines, and the Central California company offers a choice of six of its VariScope lens solutions.

The projectors can be used for 3D and traditional 2D, and to ensure the products produce smooth looking and vivid 3D graphics the projectors incorporate triple-flash 3D imaging technologies. The projectors also incorporate IR and RS-232 options, nearfield IR emitters, and Wolf ships the projectors with four pairs of 3D glasses.
