Runco Introduces Next Generation Digital Video Processor

Union City, CA — Runco International announces the first of its next generation digital video processors. The all-new DHD-12 boasts 21st century design and engineering, with sophisticated processing capabilities, providing unprecedented performance.

“We designed this product to enhance all standard and HDTV material for widescreen viewing with perfection. This processor has multiple output capabilities and the ability to individually manipulate every type of signal, providing precision customization for every conceivable configuration with the greatest of ease. The DHD-12 is Runco’s most versatile processor to date, and will set the standard for enhanced video processing,” said Bob Hana, President of Runco.

The DHD-12 incorporates Runco’s new ViVix II digital video processing, with its digital and analog enhancement capability. The pure digital signal output sets this model apart from other video processors on the market today. Runco employs Orthogonal Line Correction to address time elapsed field video issues and eliminate artifacts. Multiple resolution output capability includes 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080i, as well as 1024 x 768, 1280 x 768, 1366 x 768 and 1280 x 1024, all with multiple aspect ratios.

The DHD-12 also incorporates proprietary 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown processing for maximum quality at both 50Hz and 60Hz playback from programming originating on film, and videophile-grade edge enhancement. To protect against 4:3 image burns when used with plasmas, the DHD-12 provides gray sidebars to greatly reduce or eliminate the possibility of causing burn-in damage to the display.

The DHD-12 comes with two DVI inputs fully compliant with HDCP (high-bandwidth digital content protection) protocols for copyrighted HD sources. To assure full performance in any system configuration, the DHD-12 is equipped with flexible input and output options. Incoming video is also accepted in an optional SDI (Serial Digital Interface), and standard RGBHV, Pr-Y-Pb, Composite, S-Video, and Component Video. In addition, an IR and RS232 system control interface and three 12-volt DC triggers are provided for seamless integration with automation systems.

Founded in 1987 and currently headquartered in Union City, California, Runco International is a market leader in state-of-the-art projection systems, flat-panel plasma monitors, video processors and other components for the consumer market. Runco’s innovations have won numerous awards and citations from the world press. Runco was the first company to introduce and market a line doubler with a multi-frequency projector in 1990 and also introduced the first multiple-aspect-ratio controller, the ARC-IV, to the Home Theater market. Recently, both of these features have become necessary for the new digital high definition capable televisions. For more information on Runco International, visit the Web at www.runco.com.
