INDIANAPOLIS – High-end video projector manufacturer Runco International is showcasing at CEDIA Expo this week the latest 3-chip FullHD 1080p DLP projector in its high-brightness LightStyle series.
The Runco LightStyle LS-10HBd, which will ship this month at a $29,995 suggested retail, includes the DHD 4 video processor, which is said to produce more than 3,780 lumens of brightness output before calibration.
The projector has the ability to display high quality images in lighting environments that are not conducive to great image quality using some other projection technologies.
Placement is possible in so-called “Flex Theaters” — including living rooms, media rooms and entertainment spaces in the home where home-theater viewing must share duty with other activities.
“When clients rave about the quality and the range of options available, it is clear why the LightStyle series is one of our best-selling projection lines,” stated Jennifer Davis, Runco marketing VP. “The new LS- 10HBd projector truly enhances the line by bringing it into bigger and brighter spaces than ever before, without compromising quality, value, or the sleek, stylish industrial design for which LightStyle is known.”
Runco’s LightStyle series incorporates DLP-based SuperOnyx technology with the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) calibration suite for optimal performance.
The LS-10HBd also ships with Runco’s a Digital High-Definition 4 (DHD 4) external video processor with high-quality video processing, scaling and control.
The rack-mounted external DHD 4 offers advanced connectivity options and can be located next to, and connect directly with, all other source components using a single-wire connection from the controller to the projector.
The LS-10HBd is available with Runco’s optional CineGlide lens solution, enabling switching at the touch of a button from 16:9 content to 2.35:1 ultrawidescreen films without showing black bars on the top or sides of the image.
Runco also provides its FinishPalette design options, offering anything from matte white to camouflage ceiling installations, and other custom looks.
The LS-10HBd includes a two-year RuncoCare standard warranty. Runco RedCarpet and PremierCare extended service options are also available.
