Convert your home theater to the full cinema 2.4:1 format with the Panamorph Paladin DCR + XM2 lens system for Sony and JVC 4K home theater projectors. Now you can switch between all content formats from cinema to TV at the push of a button. You can even watch TV content filling your cinema format screen. The Paladin + XM2 lens system allows you to engage Sony and JVC internal anamorphic modes for full 4K performance that even exceeds that of commercial cinemas (JVC RS4500 projector requires a separate anamorphic processor). The Paladin DCR lens is larger than Panamorph’s direct attach DCR lenses and mounts in front of the projector without a custom attachment system, making it more compatible with future projectors (new mounting solutions may be required). If movies and streaming content are your thing then the 4K cinema format you get with the Paladin + XM2 and your 4K projector is clearly the way to bring cinema home.
Better than commercial cinema performance
Unleashes millions of unused pixels from Sony and JVC 4K projectors otherwise turned off for black letterbox bars, resulting in resolution exceeding that of local theaters to provide maximum brightness and clarity for cinema format content.
Supports today’s most popular movies and streaming content
The 2.4:1 cinema format is the industry standard both for 80% of the most popular movies made and now also for today’s streaming movies and shows.
Highest industry endorsement
Panamorph Paladin DCR lenses are the most recognized and recommended lens in the world to work with the internal anamorphic modes integrated into all of today’s projectors.
Patented, all glass cylindrical-prism thin lens design
The only anamorphic lens of its kind using patented vertical compression optics for maximum clarity and brightness from today’s 4K projectors.
Far exceeds the performance and convenience of letterbox zooming
No more black bars. No more light spill on your walls around your screen. No more moving parts. No more waiting for format changes. No more unused performance for the content meant to be the largest and best experience in your theater.
The standard for elite home cinemas
Panamorph lenses are installed in close to 10,000 high end home theaters world-wide and insisted on by the most discerning owners for the best experience possible.
Simple installation and use
The full size Paladin DCR attaches to the projector using the included XM2 attachment kit. The smaller direct attach lens models use a proprietary interface to attach directly to the front of their respective projectors.
Operates in the vast majority of home theater setups
Paladin DCR lenses should be used at a minimum throw ratio (distance from projector to screen divided by screen width) of 1.4. See the product installation guides for more details.
