Digital Projection

Schneider Kreuznach lenses for digital projection systems are built to the same high standards that have made our lenses for film projection world-renowned for superior sharpness, highly efficient light transmission, low distortion, and faithful color rendition.

The DiStar HD lens series is optimized for 2K/4K mega screen projection with a 1.38” DLP and 1.2” DLP chipset. These lenses are ideal for large screen and short throw projection. Designed for theaters presenting on flat or slightly curved screens, DiStar+HD lenses offer brilliant, bright, uniformly illuminated images from center to corner. All lenses are configured for high brightness. As an option on some focal length, we also offer high contrast. DiStar+HD lenses are designed to mount on Barco, Christie or Nec 4K digital cinema projectors.
