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!

I See You

 

The Runco Q-750d projector has been hung and calibrated. We had been discussing watching Avatar,  SkyFall, or Cars.   And after debating what to watch and getting feedback from experts and film buffs alike, we added Life of Pi and some additional firms by legendary cinematographer, Roger Deakins. Lots to choose from.

 So, what did we watch within the first 24 hours of the projector being installed?  Well, a little of all of them.  We simply couldn't decide.  We enjoyed the ConstantContrast on display in the opening scene from Cars. We watched the opening sequence and fist fight silhouetted against the neon signs in SkyFall to enjoy the black levels.  We watched the forest walk and battle scenes in Avatar to enjoy the eye-popping color of the Infinilight illumination system. We even slipped in some broadcast to test out the ISF Day and Night settings.  In short, we enjoyed a visual feast.  A feast that just wetted our appetite for family movie nights, sleepovers with school friends, and time spent enjoying our favorite movies and shows, while  finding a few new favorites along the way (which is why we are still taking your suggestions on Facebook).

 You may recall, the tribe featured in the movie Avatar has a greeting that they use when addressing each other.  They say  "I see you."  This phrase takes on new meaning to the owner of a Runco video projector.

 The magic of Runco, that we talk about so often, is rooted in optical science and clever engineering, without a doubt, and we see this in all the features of the projectors and processing systems.  Yet it goes beyond that. To compelling imagery of far off lands, alien creatures and impossible missions. To heart-racing action and heart-pricking emotion.  And to plans for family and friends to gather to enjoy all that a Runco home theater has to offer. This is the magic of Runco!
