Paper Dolls for Grown Ups

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

fashion platesBy Jennifer B. Davis

When I was a girl, I had an extensive collection of paper doll books. I loved playing with them and I bought a few to collect. Like the Princess Diana one I still own and another of Nancy Reagan that I got on a trip to Washington D.C. with a school group. Years before that, I had a Fashion Plate toy (Tomy brand) that allowed you to create your own paper doll designs, complete with rub-on crayon patterns. I am sure I am not alone in these childhood memories. In fact, I suspect that these toys designed to inspire creativity have led many people to careers in fashion design, graphic arts, or interior architecture, including many of the designers and architects with whom we and our authorized dealers closely work.

With the launch of the new Runco Vistage™ ultra-thin displays and the related FinishPalette™ options, I am reminded again how fun it is to accessorize! Like those paper dolls that we used to play with, the options for customization and personalization are extravagant! You need not look any further than the FinishPalette catalog to see the literally hundreds of options available. If you don’t find what you need, we also offer custom hand-painted murals, leather or wool felt sculpture, color-matched paint, and a host of truly custom options for a one-of-a-kind piece of art in your home.

To get you in the spirit and to illustrate my point, try out your very own “paper doll” version of the Vistage V-63HD showing just a few of the myriad of designer options available. Enjoy!

Unmatched Brightness and Cutting Edge LED Technology: Q-1500d

Friday, October 01, 2010

Q-1500dOctober 1, 2010

The new Runco QuantumColor™ Q-1500d lampless LED home theater projector combines the revolutionary QuantumColor Series technology and powerhouse performance to create the brightest LED projector available for larger screens (up to 200 inches) and moderate-light environments. Q-1500d features Runco SmartColor™ and InstantOn™ to deliver an energy efficient system with the widest color gamut ever available in home theater.

The Q-1500d projector’s InfiniLight LED system is more stable than a traditional UHP mercury lamp and is calibrated at start-up for a more gentile brightness loss curvature. This combined with a phenomenon called Q-lumens means the perceived brightness-advantage is even more pronounced after 1,000-2,000 hours, enabling the Q-1500d projector to outperform its own specifications.

Q-1500d also features Runco’s Personal Color Equalizer™ (PCE), which allows the displayed colors to be individually dialed up and down for every video source. This allows for multiple personal preferences that achieve unprecedented colors, including those defined by Hollywood’s cinematographers.

With two lens options to accommodate nearly every theater and Runco’s award-winning CineWide™ and AutoScope™ available, the QuantumColor™ Q-1500d offers the latest LED technology, unrivaled customization and unsurpassed performance.

To learn more about Q-lumens, read Runco’s eBook “Out-of-the-Box Brightness for Life™.”

The Sweet, Sweet Sound

Monday, September 27, 2010CEDIA LifeStyle Awards - Adam Schmidt and Jennifer Davis

By Jennifer B. Davis

CEDIA came to a beautiful crescendo on Saturday night at the Awards Banquet. They announced the LifeStyle Award Winners and it was a pleasure and privilege to have Runco’s new 3Dimension Series D-73d product named “New Product of the Year” and the only video product recognized.

When we heard the announcement, Adam Schmidt and I went on stage to accept the award from Maureen Jenson, the Editor-in-Chief of CustomRetailer Magazine then we were whisked backstage for a photo shoot and video interviews. When we returned to the hall to the congratulations of customers, partners, and colleagues, it truly was a sweet sound!

To have our approach to 3D recognized by the industry is quite an honor. Constant Stereoscopic Video™ (CSV) 3D is taking the market by storm. The orders that were booked during the CEDIA Expo make it clear that it is the must-have technology of 2011 and will be featured prominently in dealer showrooms all over the world. If the end user client demonstrations we conducted are any indication, our innovative dual-engine architecture with PreciseLight™ optical system (stylish passive glasses with no batteries!) will redefine what the luxury experience in 3D can be: 3D done right!

We want to thank the panel of judges from CEDIA and the industry for this recognition, and for helping us orchestrate a movement that will continue into a strong 2011!
