Runco® is expanding its LightStyle Series with two new 3-chip DLP®, 1080p projectors; the LS-10d and LS-10i. Designed to excel in both the dedicated theater as well as othe r rooms in the home, such as media rooms, basements, dens, these new Runco projectors deliver uncompromised 1080p 3-chip video performance at an astounding value.
Combining technology, design and brightness, the LS-10 projectors are not only powerhouse solutions for the dedicated home theater, but also boast performance and brightness to excel in other rooms of the home where very large, expensive, power-guzzling flat-screen TVs have traditionally been considered the only solution for large-screen viewing. Other rooms that are ideal for the LS-10 include the media room, basement, den, bonus or living spaces. The LS-10 boasts flawless HD imagery, practical integration fea tures, and a sophisticated design that has won critical acclaim for its ability to complement any room's decor.
Runco's LightStyle Series combines state-of-the-art DLP-based SuperOnyx technology with Runco ConstantContrast and Vivix image enhancement and proprietary video processing to achieve deep black levels and significant contrast. Both incorporate the ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) calibration suite for optimal performance in any room making Runco's LS-10 projectors ideal for rooms beyond the dedicated home theater. These calibration tools feature day and night calibration memory settings, individual sharpness and noise reduction controls, programmable image memory selection keys, built-in test patterns and a dark room-optimized remote.
The LS-10i (see specs) features Runco's legendary internal video processing for exceptional scaling and analog to digital signal conversion. The LS-10d (see specs) ships with Runco's award-winning Digital High-Definition (DHD) external video processor offering the same processing and scaling as well as IR and RS-232 control and enables individual display calibration through the controller. Designed as a rack-mounted external processor, the DHD offers advanced connectivity options as well as installation flexibility because it can be located next to, and connect directly to, all other source components with a single-wire connection from the DHD to the projector, making it an ideal solution for retrofit installs.
The LS-10 projectors are available with Runco's new CineGlide lens solution that enables a motorized, mechanical 2.35:1 anamorphic lens to move in front of the standard lens for perfect Scope reproduction. Runco CineGlide enables the viewer to switch from 16:9 content to 2.35:1 content, without black bars on the top or side of the image, with the touch of a button.
Its sleek, glamorous design and customization options make the Runco LightStyle Series projectors the perfect solution to pair with a design-conscious homeowner. Both the LS-10i and LS-10d can be customized with Runco's FinishPalette, the latest element of the Design by Runco initiative. Runco's FinishPalette enables full-color, large-format projector design options, including licensed logos from your favorite NCAA® collegiate sports programs, a gallery of artist impressions and the option to custom-print your own artwork. Complementing the new FinishPalette offering are 25 new, hand-finished signature paint colors to compliment any decor.
The LS-10i will be available in October for an MSRP of $21,995 and LS-10d will be available in December for an MSRP of $26,995. All Runco displays feature a two-year RuncoCare standard warranty. Runco RedCarpet and PremierCare extended service options are also available. Runco's new LightStyle Series projectors are available exclusively through the best dealers in the home theater business – the Runco authorized dealer network.
