Runco XtremeProjection X-200i Wows Visitors at CEDIA

 Steinway Lyngdorf selected Runco for their projection system in their audio room at CEDIA.  "The X-200i projector from Runco was ideal for our demonstration room, the high quality picture wowed visitors and the nearly noiseless operation let our audio system take center stage," noted Katherine Spiller, director of sales and marketing, Steinway Lyngdorf.  The projector was used with a 16:9 aspect ratio screen and showed a variety of content to highlight the combined audio and video quality of the room set-up.

The X-200i is the most popular model in the XtremeProjection™ series and was designed from the ground up specifically for the custom installer who specializes in high-end theaters and appreciates craftsmanship and video quality.  The XtremeProjection™ series projector brings big screen experiences to the home filling maximum screen sizes from 171 to 235 inches wide – the equivalent of up to a 270-inch diagonal video image.  The X-200i relies on a combination of state-of-art DLP-based SuperOnyx™ technology and proprietary electronics, processing, and optics to deliver stunning images in both 2D and 3D.

For unparalleled reproduction of Hollywood’s 2.35:1 CinemaScope standard the X-200i is available with Runco’s legendary CineWide™ with AutoScope™ technology. Selecting from multiple lens options that allow the flexibility for seamless integration into the most sophisticated personal cinemas, each X-200i projector is custom built to suit the exact requirements specified for every client.

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!
