Beaverton, OR - Runco said it
is now shipping Ultra versions of several of its 3Dimension D-73d Ultra,
LightStyle LS-HB Ultra, QuantumColor Q-750d Ultra and QuantumColor Q-1500d
Ultra projector models.
The Ultra versions of Runco's projectors designate higher
sharpness and lower color distortion at longer distances from the screen, the
Runco said the new models will help it continue to expand
applications for projection beyond dedicated theater environments.
This plays to a growing trend for what Runco calls
"flex-theaters," or projector placements in non-dedicated entertainment rooms
such as family rooms, media rooms, and outdoors.
Ultra give installers greater flexibility in setting up
projectors in non-traditional environments, while deliverying high-quality
image performance under varying ambient lighting conditions.
"The projector is no
longer just for a dedicated theater and having the right projector for the job
is a necessity to achieve optimal performance," said Jennifer Davis, Runco
marketing VP. "We developed the technology in our Ultra versions to give our
authorized resellers even more projector possibilities for their clients."
The long throw distances
afforded by Ultra models also provide solutions for design conscious consumers
who don't want a bulky projector intruding on the home's design. Throw
distances range from 2.40 to 4.00, depending on the projector and lens.
