Runco Adds Brilliant New Projector to Award-Winning LightStyle Series with LS-12HBd


Runco’s best-selling LightStyle™ Series taken to new heights of brightness and scale, offering an affordable big screen video experience in virtually any room of the home.

Beaverton, OR - September 16, 2013 – Planar Systems, a worldwide leader in specialty display solutions, continues to expand its line of Runco®-brand display solutions and is thrilled to introduce the Runco LS-12HBd projector.  Sharing many of the technical attributes of the award-winning LightStyle™ projector series, the LS-12HBd is a brilliant 3-chip DLP projector that has been designed specifically to create stunning video at a scale unattainable by other display types.

This high-bright projector measures 3780 lumens before calibration and opens up new projector possibilities in the home, excelling outside of the dedicated home theater, where environmental factors such as lighting are not easily controlledThe LS-12HBd is the ideal solution for “Flex-Theater” spaces where big screen entertainment is only a portion of the room’s purpose.

The new LS-12HBd 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 LS-12HBd, clients can enjoy active 3D technology and the projector comes equipped with three sets of active shutter glasses.  With active 3D, customers can view 2D or 3D content on the same screen, switching between their entertainment choices. 

The LS-12HBd ships with the Dimension Digital Controller™ (DC-300), which has been engineered to enhance stereoscopic performance of Runco 3D-enabled products, while providing the ultimate in connectivity, control and calibration – the DC-300 features eight (8) HDMI inputs, as well as analog and control inputs for flexibility.

Runco’s LS-12HBd projector is available with Runco’s optional 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 (when combined with the proper screen system) to fill the entire screen, eliminating black bars while using all of the projector’s resolution and brightness as content switches from 16:9 content to 2.35:1. This and all the features of the LS-12HBd can be controlled with a third-party automation system for client convenience.

Like all Runco projectors, the LS-12HBd features 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 Runco’s authorized dealer network.
