Mission-Critical 3D

3D TK TheaterWe are very bullish on the architecture of the 3Dimension™ 3D projector series and Constant Stereoscopic Video™ (CSV) 3D benefits it delivers because it has been field-proven. Runco’s parent company, Planar, has been in the stereoscopic display space for years with a wildly-popular solution which works in a similar way. We are confident that you will be able to comfortably watch a 2-hour movie because this approach has been used by professionals for 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week for military officers doing top-secret satellite imagery analysis, radiologists reading mammograms to detect cancer, scientists using computational chemistry to do drug discovery and a host of other mission-critical applications without eye fatigue or the discomfort that is typical to other approaches to 3D. Runco’s award-winning solution is 3D done right!

OscarsTonight is the Academy Awards ceremony and Hollywood has taken on a gold glow as Oscars are handed out and red-carpet regalia is unveiled.

I found it interesting to learn that the Oscars are made of a cast alloy called brittannium. They then plate the britannium in copper, nickel silver, and finally in 24-karat gold to achieve the desired sheen.

However, unlike the Oscars, there are some things that are true gold through-and-through.

The commitment to service and technical expertise of our Runco authorized dealers comes to mind. Our dealers really have a heart for their clients and it shows in their late nights, consultative approaches, and long-term, trusting relationships. If you don’t have an A/V dealer, we’d love to recommend one to you.

Likewise, the company behind Runco is not made of some base metal gilded for appearance only. Runco, and our parent company, Planar, have an impressive customer list crossing many high-performance market segments like the high-end home, military, and corporate markets. We also have a basket of innovative and unique display technologies that is unmatched in the industry, brought to life by our talented team of engineers. We have a commitment to design innovation and personalization that keeps our customers coming back for solutions. And combined with our commitment to customer service, Runco can deliver incomparable visual experiences in the home. Day in and day out.

Unlike the stars and the Oscars, we don’t just get dressed up for the award show. You won’t find any Britannium here.
