Runco announced the VideoXtreme VX-11d 3-chip DLP projector with CineWide and CineWide with AutoScope, precisely engineered to bring the ultimate viewing experience to consumers looking for versatile, high-fidelity HD solutions for custom home theaters.
Runco's VideoXtreme portfolio of performance projection systems, which also includes the VX-3000, VX-22 models and the high-end VX-33i/d, offers the most advanced and unique combination of performance, feature sets, and price-points to satisfy the diverse range of budgets and media environments of every video aficionado. Spectacular video reproduction sets the VX-11d above the rest by combining the industry's most advanced technology, an ingeniously engineered 3-chip DLP light engine with 1080p SuperOnyx, and Runco's proprietary video processing and scaling. Utilizing proprietary O-Path technology and ISF exacting calibration standards, the VX-11d projects ultra-high resolution and brightness, making it the perfect projector for the spectacular media rooms of today's luxury residences.
The VX-11d features Runco's Digital High-Definition (DHD) external video processor. The Runco DHD4 offers the most advanced alignment in Runco history, allowing for ultra-precise installation geometries, more extreme installation scenarios, and the removal of any pin-cushion effect that can be caused by 2.35:1 scaling, improving the CineWide technology. The DHD4 now also supports control over HDMI CEC in addition to the traditional IR and the expanded RS-232 connections. And for added dealer convenience, the new web interface allows for calibration from a laptop, smart phone, Apple iPhone, or iPad, which makes installation and set-up even easier for the installer. In addition, the Runco DHD4 offers four HDMI inputs and three composite video connections.
The first and leading 2.35:1 projection solution, CineWide has since been adopted industry wide to properly reproduce 2.35:1 CinemaScope movies. The addition of Vivix, with VirtualWide and new VirtualCinema, removes the black bars from letterboxed content for non-CineWide configurations and expertly widens 16:9 content to fit into a 2.35:1 screen with minimal distortion on projectors with CineWide lenses. All video aspect ratios are supported without any loss of image integrity for the best possible imagery from all video sources, enhancing all digital and analog signals to near-high-definition quality. This technology combination allows VideoXtreme projectors to handle native HD content flawlessly while making standard-definition content appear near-HD quality.
