The Cinema 12SF: Studio Experience Welcomes Newest Projector to Exclusive Home Theater Line

Press Release  |  Nov 1, 2001

Ideal for home theater, this lightweight, DLP projector is loaded with cutting-edge features and unsurpassed video quality

Studio Experience, the one-stop source for the best in home theater video display, is quickly establishing itself as a leader in the industry. The newest offering from their exclusive projection line, the Cinema 12SF, is guaranteed to delight home theater enthusiasts with its compact design and host of unique features that will earn any movie night rave reviews.

Whether watching Independence Day or Remains of the Day, Studio Experience's Cinema 12SF will dazzle. This Class B certified unit manages to combine all the best home theater technology available for a true theater-like viewing experience that will make going out to the movies obsolete. Wrapped in a sleek 6.7 lb. package, the Cinema 12SF can be mounted for fixed installation or easily moved from room-to-room.

With a combination of dual mode native resolutions, including SVGA 800x600 and 848x480 true wide and 1000 ANSI lumens, movies jump from the screen into real life. The Cinema 12SF also utilizes the aroudja video chip set with DCDiTM (Directional Correlational Deinterlacing) technology, giving this leading-edge unit the ability to suppress artifacts in the video display by converting the interlaced signal into progressive scan—creating the highest quality video images possible. In addition, DCDi allows for both 3:2 and 2:2 pull down film modes and provides cross-color suppression, for the purest colors and sharpest image detail available.

Studio Experience's Cinema 12SF features a remarkable 16:9 and 4:3 dual mode aspect ratio, allowing the projector to mask extra pixels thus removing the distracting black bars typically associated with letterbox versions of DVDs and videos.

A state-of-the-art six-segment/four-speed color wheel gives colors a super-saturated, true-to-life feel. The HDTV-compatible Cinema 12SF also defines itself with an impressive 600:1 contrast ratio, providing exceptional black levels and sharply detailed images.

Flexibility is the Cinema 12SF's middle name. Included in its bag of tricks is an enhanced connectivity module, which offers a number of audio, video, and computer inputs that fit any situation. The options include connections for component and composite video, S-Video, DVI and monitor loop-through. In addition, even when the Cinema 12SF is permanently installed, the connectivity module simply snaps off the projector, leaving all of the peripherals and cables in place. This allows the projector to be carried into another room for "the big game" or to the relatives' house to watch those embarrassing home movies.

Roughly the size of an 8 ½ x 11-inch piece of paper and at just over three inches tall, this off-white colored projector will blend into the landscape of most home theater rooms. In addition, the Cinema12SF minimizes set-up headaches with a throw distance of 6.5 to 33 feet and convenient manual zoom/focus.

Studio Experience prides itself on catering exclusively to the needs of the home theater enthusiast. The distinctive Cinema 12SF allows the company to further make its mark on the industry with a host of high-end features that's just the ticket to bring the magic of Hollywood home.
