Beaverton, Ore. - Runco has expanded its Signature Cinema high-end luxury projection line with the SC-50d and SC-60d, which are both 3D-ready.
Runco's SC-50d and SC-60d are 3D-ready and will support multiple formats, including Active3D using active-shutter glasses or passive-glassed-based solutions, the company said.
In coming months, additional 3D capability will be available from Runco that will be completely compatible with implementations of the SC-50d and SC-60d.
The SC-50d and SC-60d employ an illumination system consisting of two UHP lamps that offer brightness and redundancy.
Both projectors can reproduce Hollywood's 2.35:1 CinemaScope standard and are available with Runco's CineWide with AutoScope technology. The SC-50d and SC-60d feature a 1080p HD native resolution 3-chip system and 16:9 native aspect ratio to match all digital programming including switching aspect ratios for both 2D and 3D content for all media, including broadcast, film, sports and gaming, Runco said.
These are the first Runco projectors to include Runco's Smart Lens system with controllable motorized lens and iris that can be preset in memory to exact positions making it compatible with the highest-end home theater screens that feature both horizontal and vertical masking. This index zoom approach preserves the aspect ratio on any screen size, the company said.
The SC-50d and SC-60d both ship with Runco's Digital High-Definition external video processor controller.
Both the SC-50d and SC-60d are coupled with Runco's PremierCare service program providing on-site calibration and two years of ongoing support.
Runco's Signature Cinema SC-50d and SC-60d will be available in fall of 2010 with a suggested retail of $88,995 and $98,995, respectively. Optional lens, CineWide, CineWide with AutoScope, and 3D accessories are additional costs.
