Living Room 3D

stereographoscopeSo, just when we think we have embarked on a new era, a world with 3D entertainment in the home, we are reminded that everything new is old. This parlor stereographoscope (say THAT 3 times fast!) was one of the first living room 3D displays. Put your stereo pair photography on the piano-music-style stand and viola!

This brief article, from AAA's Via Magazine, claims that hundreds of millions of 3D photographs were in circulation. We long for the day that we can say the same about 3D Blu-Rays and broadcasts so that homeowners could enjoy them on their 3Dimension™ 3D projector!

This and other artifacts are on display at the 3D Center of Art and Photography in Portland, Oregon, just a few miles from our offices here at Runco.

 

Being the Best Isn't Good Enough

Thursday, March 24, 2011

By Jennifer Davis

“Don’t be the best in the world at what you do; be the only one in the world who does what you do.”

That quote is me paraphrasing Jerry Garcia who famously played lead guitar for The Grateful Dead. I first heard it from one of my favorite cartoonists, Hugh McLeod. This is a lofty aspiration that we have striven for at Runco.

Our hard work and ingenuity is paying off for our clients. We have been innovating in the home theater and larger home entertainment market for decades and our market-leading position in LED projection (the InfiniLight™ technology in our QuantumColor™ product line), our innovations in 3D (our award-winning CSV 3D approach in the 3Dimension D-73d), our envelope-pushing solutions in flat panel (OPAL™, the WindowWall™ and Vistage™ specifically), and our legendary CineWide® offerings are just examples. Our recent Design by Runco™ initiatives, like the Vistage FinishPalette™ and LightStyle FinishPalette™ are setting another standard for personalization and customization.

Once again, we are the only one in the world doing what we do.
