Wolf Cinema to Demo TXF Theater Extreme 4K Projector Series at CES
The Wolf Cinema TXF Theater Extreme 4K series provides for improved performance in the affordable home cinema projection class, while adding a new high-output flagship 4K laser/phosphor three-chip D-ILA home theater edition.
Wolf Cinema announced the release of a new series of 4K imaging projectors for the home – three using 6th generation three-chip D-ILA light engine technologies plus a flagship laser/phosphor native 4K/UHD projector, all suitable as stand-alone imaging platforms or mated with two Wolf Cinema external 4K video processors.
The new projectors in the TXF “Theater Extreme 4K” series comes in four models -- TXF-900, TXF-1400, TXF-2000 and TXF-5000. Starting at well under $10,000 MSRP, these 2D/3D Wolf Cinema platforms include three traditional lamp-based editions, plus an all-new second generation, high-output Blu-escent laser/phosphor flagship projector. Each model in the TXF series is capable of imaging on to screens up to 18-feet in width. All four models are available now.
Every edition in the TXF series incorporates full 18Gbps Ultra HD HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2 compatibility—with up to 4K60 4:4:4 sources – in addition to boasting significant increases in peak white performance over earlier editions [up to 3200 ANSI lumens]. The TXF series also delivers deep black levels with full HDR10 imaging compatibility, multiple VariScope aspect ratio memories, custom factory gamut and gamma calibrations, housed in an all-metal chassis for improved thermal coefficients.
The second-generation Blu-escent laser/phosphor projector, model TXF-5000, incorporates a new 0.69-inch three-chip native 4K [4096 x 2160] D-ILAtechnology core and is illuminated by a 20,000-hour life Blu-Escent laser diode/phosphor light source. The TXF-5000 also boasts 3200 ANSI lumens of peak white performance, while dynamic contrast approaches unmeasurable levels [∞:1], according to the company.
The all-glass, 18-element primary optics package facilitates lens shift for installation flexibility – ±100% vertical, ±43% horizontal—while maintaining sharpness and clarity throughout the available throw distance. The unit has the latest Ultra HD [4K] imaging technologies such as HDR10, Hybrid Log-Gamma for live HDR broadcasts, and is able to achieve the BT.709 and Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) color gamut and over 80 percent of the ultra-wide BT.2020 color space.
“Clients everywhere will fall in love with our newly-crafted TXF series of UHD/4K home theater solutions,” says Jim McGall, director of sales for Wolf Cinema.
“They are all gorgeous imagers in their own right, and housed in what one client called a ‘jewel-like’ anodized aluminum casework. In particular, I think folks everywhere will be astonished by the TXF-5000’s amazingly lifelike 4K imagery, superior color renditions, remarkable black level performance and stunning edge details from one’s favorite sources. And talk about longevity—the second-generation Blu-escent laser diodes [48 in total] will provide years of uninterrupted imaging excellence, without the typical image degradation that is experienced with lamp-based solutions. But no matter which projector you chose in our TXF series—as a stand-alone unit or mated with one of our new 4K/UHD ProScaler video processors—you’ll experience breathtakingly detailed images from all your favorite SD, HD and UHD/4K sources.”
Wolf Cinema will be showcasing the TXF-900 and TXF-5000 home theater projectors at CES 2017 in Venetian demo suite 29-103. Wolf Cinema projectors are only sold through a select network of highly-qualified custom integration specialists.
