  • Theater & Media Room Series
  • 5K UHD Resolution (5,120 x 2,160)
  • Laser Phosphor
  • Up to 5,600 ANSI Lumens

Balder incorporates our unique PULSE electronics platform, inhouse designed laser engine and the world’s finest optical components, fusing them together with the imaging device technology chosen by 9 out of 10 professional cinemas: DLP.


Professional grade optics

 

By basing Balder Cinemascope’s optical engine on its bigger brother Loki’s Cinemascope’s architecture, incorporating custom designed aspherical glass elements and enhanced low dispersion glass lenses, image quality is in a class of its own.

Topping that, Balder’s chassis and core are built from aluminium and magnesium, which offer exceptional robustness, resulting in the best picture quality ever shown at this level.

State of the art electronics 

Thanks to our unique single step processing technology (SSPTM), Pulse electronics are designed to process 4K UHD, HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2 and HDR10 signals with extremely low latency.

Balder CinemaScope uses the very latest 0.9" DMD DLP chipset, to display flawless 5K UHD (5,120 × 2,160 px), 2.37:1 aspect ratio images on screen.

CinemaScope

Our unique aspect ratio detection system, automatically crops and scales content to fit the appropriate screen area, ranging from 1.78:1 to 2.39:1. 

Manual cropping is also available for custom configurations such as cinemascope subtitle support, where only the top black bar is removed from none 1.78:1 content, preserving the subtitles at the foot of the image.

Liquid cooling 

Balder has departed from a pure fan based cooling system, opting instead for a liquid cooling PID regulation system.  This combined with our simulation grade warp engine allows Balder to operate at any angle (free rotation), offering new possibilities when it comes to architectural integration.
