Atlanta – Runco will use CEDIA Expo to unveil the first in its
new series of 3Dimension video DLP projectors, among other new products to
emerge during the show.
Runco (exhibiting in training room C-301) said it has developed a
“revolutionary” approach to 3D display, using a proprietary Constant
Stereoscopic Video (CSV) technology capable of seamless decoding, syncing and
merging of stereo images while delivering a constant HD image to each eye.
The system uses passive glasses technology, which Runco said is
“proven to be superior for the viewer,” and is the technology used today in
The projector was also optimized to deliver high-quality 2D
images, Runco said.
The 3Dimension Series kicks off with the model D-73d, which uses
Runco’s “lampless” LED lighting technology that first appeared in the company’s
QuantumColor projectors at CEDIA last year.
It also has the company’s InfiniLight system that reduces power
consumption, is mercury-free, and turns on instantly (InstantOn) with no need
for standby mode.
The LED approach is said to expand the available color gamut to achieve
and exceed Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) standards.
Carrying a $49,995 suggested retail, the D-73d also has a cabinet
with a new industrial design called Coppenhagen. The look was said to have been
inspired by both classic and modern Danish architecture and design, including
the works of furniture designers Arne Jacobsen and Verner Panton.
