Leica Camera AG enters the home cinema market with its first laser TV, Leica Cine 1, setting new standards for the future of television.
So, you’ve seen projectors ranging from those you used at school that weighed a ton and used transparent plastic slides, through to pocket-sized pico projectors you can take with you on life’s little adventures. Now there’s something completely different with the arrival of the Leica Cine 1 – yes, the camera guys.
The Leica Cine 1 is what the boffins call an ‘ultra short throw’ laser projector that can project 4K images up to 100 inches across. Boasting unique triple RGB laser technology and a sophisticated Summicron lens with aspherical elements, the Cine 1 represents the first time high-quality Leica moving images can be experienced on 80- or 100-inch displays in 4k quality. Even better, those images are paired with an integrated, high-performance Dolby Atmos audio system for the perfect home cinema experience.
The integrated TV tuner, which includes a CI slot for pay TV channels, provides linear TV enjoyment while the VIDAA smart TV launcher opens up the world of streaming entertainment for users. Hard drives or additional players such as Blu-ray players or game consoles can be connected via the built-in HDMI and USB inputs, and the screen mirroring function rounds off the streaming experience.
And for long, top-quality home cinema nights, the projected image of the Leica Cine 1 is considerably less fatiguing for the eyes than conventional TV displays, while consuming significantly less energy than an OLED TV of comparable size.
The typically puristic Leica design language is reflected in the durable, silver premium aluminium body with a slim automatic dust cover for optimum lens protection. Sophisticated details such as perforated plates on the sides for better audio output and effective ventilation also underline the high standards of functionality and feel in the design of Leica products.
