Take your home cinema experience beyond flat panels and even commercial theaters

In September of 2018 both Sony and JVC announced that all their new native 4K/4096 home theater projectors, from lowest price to highest, will now include modes to upconvert 4K/UHD movies using Panamorph’s patented new Paladin DCR lens system for full anamorphic 4K/4096 performance, “repurposing” the black bar regions typical of letterbox movie projection to deliver 2.6 million more pixels than any 4K/UHD flat panel and 1.7 million more pixels than even commercial theaters when showing the 2.4:1 cinema aspect ratio of more than 80% of today’s most popular movies. And all those upconverted pixels don’t just give you the highest possible clarity, they also give you up to 38% more brightness beyond standard UHD letterbox projection to give you the best big screen cinema experience.


 Projection vs. Flat Panel. It’s about more than size.

The highest performance combined with elegant simplicity from the world’s leading anamorphic lens brand

For nearly 20 years Panamorph has been the most recognized and recommended anamorphic lens brand in the home theater industry with placements in close to 10,000 high end home theaters world-wide. Through years of collaboration with every leading home theater projector, screen and digital processor manufacturer, anamorphic UltraWide 2.4:1 has become the premium theater format because of our industry’s passionate desire to deliver the full visual and emotional impact of today’s most popular movies the way the director intended. Simple to install, no moving parts, and even multiple options for watching 16:9 content without moving the DCR lens. It’s the next state of high end home theater. And it’s available today – exclusively through custom home theater projector dealers and installers.

“It was very obvious that adding a couple million more pixels processed by my Sony and sent through the Paladin DCR definitely increased the visual clarity and detail of everything I watched.” – Ash Sharma, Sony VPL-VW5000ES owner and winner of the Electronic House Magazine Best Home Theater of the Year

“Dear Panamorph, I want to send my thanks to you for installing the Panamorph lens system in my Los Angeles home screening room. It really fits my needs as a director, especially when screening my own footage and movies. It’s a great system, and I recommend it for anyone’s home theater. Thanks again.”Michael Bay, Director, Transformers, Pearl Harbor, Armageddon and many others produced in the UltraWide format.
