Leica Cine 1 Projector

Far-off adventures and family trips were inevitably followed by a slide show at home. It was a ritual. Adman Mad Man Dad would set up his latest Leica Pradovit slide projector, unfurl a large retractable Da-Lite screen, dim the lights and let the show begin.

Leitz/Leica Pradovit projectors were familiar fixtures for many years. It was a given that Leitz Elmarit lenses were major contributors to the luminous images sliding in the dark.

The magic of large screen projection in homes, offices, galleries and public spaces continues with the new Leica Cine 1 digital projector.

It has a Leica Summicron lens, similar in look to luscious LeitzSummicron-C cine lenses, along with a triple RGB-laser, a digital micro-mirror device system and an ultra-short throw lens. There are three models, depending on image projection size (up to 120 inches), at 3,000 ANSI Lumens, and 1,000:1 contrast ratio.

Its DLP is 0.47″ 4K XPR 3840×2160, delivering greater than 100% BT.2020, HDR, HLG and Dolby Vision with Atmos audio.

Leica Cine 1 connects via HDMI 2.1, HDMI 2.0 with ARC, USB, Ethernet LAN, Optical Toslink audio, etc.

For homes, well-equipped screening rooms, museums, restaurants, galleries, offices—the Leica Cine 1 Projector and its Summicron lens will illuminate and inform your viewing habits.
