Runco Brings 3D Home with New Signature Cinema Projectors


Runco-SC-30d-projector-small.jpgRunco recently announced two new models in the Signature Cinema series: the SC-30d and SC-35d. The new SC-30d and SC-35d both utilize a Runco-patented technology to enable the use of digital cinema lenses in a proprietary optical system. The digital cinema optics allegedly deliver the crispest and truest digital projection imagery available on the market today, starting at prices under $40,000 - making them the most affordable projectors in the Signature Cinema portfolio in the history of Runco.

The SC-30d boasts 3500 ANSI lumens of brightness uncalibrated, and when calibrated to Runco's CSMS standards reportedly delivers 87 Foot-Lamberts (fL) of brightness.

Signature Cinema projectors come equipped with three pairs of active 3D glasses, and rely on frame sequential 3D technology to ensure that users are able to enjoy 2D and 3D content on the same screen, with full 1080p HD resolution delivered to both eyes.

The SC-30d and SC-35d are also available with Runco's optional and exclusive CineWide and CineWide with AutoScope. CineWide has been adopted industry-wide to properly deliver a recreation of the theatrical experience with 2.35:1 aspect ratio movies by removing the black bars from letterboxed content. All video aspect ratios are supported.

The SC-30d and SC-35d models ship complete with Runco's new Dimension Digital Controller (DC-300. It is designed to be located next to, and connect directly to, all other source components, with a single-wire connection from the processor to the projector.

The SC-30d and SC-35d can also be customized with Runco's ColourPalette design options, in Signature colors or custom shade matched to the clients' taste.

Shipping in October 2012, retail pricing for the Runco SC-30d starts at $39,995 and the Runco SC-35d at $44,995.
