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.
