ColourPalette: Runco Extreme

Monday, April 19, 2010

Introducing Runco Extreme™, a new color in the Runco ColourPalette Signature Collection.

“I don’t have to tell you how I feel about the color purple.” - Oprah

Runco Extreme

Purple is the color of royalty and has long been regarded as the most regal of the rainbow. It is reminiscent of so many things in nature including wild flowers, sunset skies, fruits, exotic aquatic animals, and it was one of the first colors ever used to dye fabrics for clothing and decoration.

When we were assembling colors for the recently launched ColourPalette, we took cues from the world of design and from nature, from the science of color and light, and our own preferences. We’ll be featuring each color in the ColourPalette Signature Collection. Follow our feed or bookmark this page to hear about additional colors we have selected for the palette and the color-matching service we offer to allow you to match your projector, or display precisely to your room décor.

Showroom Triple-Play

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

New showroom opening, clients and partners, combined with an impressive showing from the consumer electronics press to create a fantastic event at the Runco Dealer, S.E.A.L. Solutions showroom in Long Island, New York on April 8th. Not only did they roll out a new showroom for their clients and partners, but Chris Wylie also was able to preview a new collection of theater designs and accessories from the legendary, charming, and inspirational, Theo Kalomirakis from TKTheaters. The theater installed in the showroom was made complete with a Runco QuantumColor Q-750 complete with a CineWide and Autoscope set-up for the viewing of video content in a wide variety of formats.

It was my pleasure to introduce Theo and help introduce the packed house to the possibilities in their homes. I was reminded of Chris’ fine work on Liam Neeson and the late Natasha Richardson’s media room, where Chris’ design transforms their space from a family room, to entertaining space, to theater with ease. It was heartwarming to hear stories of how the talented and lovely Natasha made the installation team peanut butter and jelly sandwiches since she was afraid they were working too hard and might be hungry. Runco and everyone who knew her still mourn her tragic, accidental death.

My favorite question of the night was from one of the videographers on hand who took me aside to ask my advice. “Do you have products just for dedicated theaters, like the one here, or are there other options? What do I do if I don’t have the space or budget for a theater?” To which I responded, “In that case, you do the same thing that you would do if you wanted and could afford a dedicated theater…you call an authorized Runco dealer, like Chris, who can advise and design a system that meets your needs, your standards, and your budget.” Whether your room has lots of natural light and high ceilings or if it is a window-less basement with fixed concrete walls, every space can present design and technical constraints and our dealers are ready and capable of designing solutions.

The Distinguishing Touch

“Architects all have access to the same materials. It’s how we put them together that distinguishes us.” – Howard J. Backen, FAIA, Backen Gillam Architects*


This is true of architects of all types. Our product architect and engineering staff may have access to the same materials as others, whether those be raw components, surface materials, or video format standards, but it is in the unique combinations where their creativity and expertise is evident. And, of course, there are certainly some technologies to which our team has unique access. After all, we have a legacy of invention and innovation and it shows in our proprietary products and features. From the satin-grained, mitered-cornered frames of Runco’s XP plasma line to the stylish LightStyle™ projector series. From the industry-changing SmartColor™ of the QuantumColor™ projectors to the stunning brightness of the VideoXtreme™ VX-33, the Runco products are exceptional and worthy of your extraordinary home.
