Runco LightStyle LS-12d DLP 3D Projector


Planar Systems announced the Runco LightStyle LS-12d three-chip DLP home theater projector with Dimension Digital Controller, a wide array of lens options and chassis designs.

As Runco’s most affordable 3D projector, the LS-12d is ideal for “Flex-Theater” spaces where big screen entertainment is only a portion of the room’s purpose and aesthetics and placement are as crucial as video performance, while still providing an exemplary option for dedicated home theaters. The new LS-12d also delivers exceptional 3D and 2D performance, since 2D content still comprises the majority of material viewed in home theaters and private cinemas. With the addition of the LS-12d to Runco’s 3D projection offerings, customers now have a variety of exceptional 3D options to choose from based on their individual needs.

The LS-12d utilizes active 3D technology and comes equipped with three sets of active shutter glasses. With active 3D, customers can enjoy 2D or 3D content on the same screen, ideal for “Flex-Theater” spaces. Runco also provides the choice of passive 3D technology in its award-winning 3Dimension series, which utilize polarized glasses and a silver non-depolarizing screen.

The LS-12d is also the first projector to ship with Runco’s new Dimension Digital Controller (DC-300), which has been engineered to enhance 3D performance of Runco 3D-enabled products. This 2U outboard controller provides a level of flexibility and control not found in integrated processors and provides Runco installers with a full suite of calibration tools necessary to achieve the perfect picture, no matter the viewing environment.

The LS-12d can be customized with Runco’s FinishPalette which enables complete projector personalization for the homeowner. FinishPalette adds full-color design options, including exact PMS color matching for any college or pro-sports teams, a gallery of artist impressions, and the option to custom-print client-supplied artwork. Complementing the FinishPalette offering are 25 hand-finished signature paint color options.

Price and Availability
The Runco LightStyle LS-12d will be available from authorized Runco dealers beginning April 2012 for $27,995, which includes the DC-300 (MSRP $9,995) and three pair of glasses and two-year RuncoCare standard warranty.
