LS12HBd Earns TOP PICK from Sound and Vision at CEDIA 2013

Monday, September 30, 2013

Wisdom Audio selected Runco’s new LightStyle LS-12HBd for their CEDIA Theater and the final result garnered Sound & Vision’s “Top Pick”.  The screen was 21 feet wide and the new LS-12HBd delivered an image was bright and beautiful.  The content ranged from video clips including animation (Pixar’s WALL-E) to live action to concert footage (Peter Gabriel concert), in multiple aspect ratios including CinemaScope 2.35:1, and product presentations.

"Runco once again proved to be phenomenal partner for us at CEDIA Expo," stated Todd Sutherland, VP Marketing of Wisdom Audio. "We demonstrated a reference-level system in a very large room at Expo, using a 250-inch wide 2:40 Seymour Screen Excellence 4K screen, and Runco's new LS-12HBd was beyond impressive in its ability to handle this huge screen, and with an absolutely gorgeous image. The combination of superb audio and video performance accomplished what we all wanted as partners in this demonstration; attendees were swept away in an incredibly compelling experience, wanting more of each demo clip. Countless dealers, reps, manufacturers and international distributors commented to us that they fully expected the new LS-12HBd to be really good, but were frankly blown away with the job that it did on this huge screen."

 Another CEDIA has come and gone and Runco didn’t fail to wow audiences once again!
