UNION CITY, CA - August 29, 2005 - Home cinema enthusiasts who demand a
sophisticated, calibrated, regulated, walking, talking cinematic experience
that transforms them directly to the Bijou have two new incredibly
high-value projector options courtesy of Runco International. The company
with the reputation for "Bringing Hollywood Home," introduces the
ReflectionT Series models CL-610/610LT and CL-810. These new projectors
produce dazzling, big-screen pictures with high-definition clarity at an
incredible value. The new models are now available to Runco's custom
installation specialists nationwide.
Runco's two newest ReflectionT Series models are designed for aspiring home
cinema enthusiasts who have wisely placed their trust in professionals who
cater to a customer with a taste for quality. Broadening the Runco portfolio
with the new CL-610/610LT and CL-810, optimizes the choice of product from
both a price and performance perspective that allows the custom theater
installer to correctly match the right Runco projector to the installation.
Runco built the new CL-610/610LT and CL-810 to introduce its world renowned
luxury home cinema experience and imaging excellence to this growing
audience. Runco started with its own SuperOnyxT technology, which uses
cutting-edge Digital Light Processing (DLPT) technology, and added the new
Selectable Lamp Intensity ControlT (SLICT) feature to create a powerful and
versatile imaging system. The result is a projector that generates a vibrant
and color-saturated picture within viewing environments with widely varied
Bob Hana, president of Runco International, said that the latest ReflectionT
portfolio of projectors give theater installers the tools to design
impressive home cinemas within a wide variety of homes.
"With the unveiling of the CL-610/610LT and CL-810, our dealers can put the
Runco name into the homes of an entirely new group of viewers." Hana added,
"We aspire to attract new members to our family of customers and show them
what the 'Runco Experience' is all about. Our goal is to deliver the
exciting feel of a professional cinema together with the personal service
relationship that represents a truly unique value. The latest Reflection
SeriesT projectors mark the beginning of a proud era for Runco, one in which
we can offer the industry's best picture quality across a very broad range
of price points."
Both the CL-610/610LT and CL-810 feature a native 16:9 resolution of 1280 x
720 to create brilliant, high-definition pictures on screens at a
recommended width of 96 inches. The CL-610/610LT and CL-810 produce
brightness levels of 1150 and 1250 ANSI lumens respectively, as well as
contrast ratios of 2200:1 and 3100:1. Outfitted with Runco's SLICT feature,
the lamp has two different intensity settings that can be controlled by the
user and both displays can accommodate the variation in ambient lighting
that exists between homes.
Runco's award-winning ViViXT digital video processing is included in both
models to provide artifact-free scaling and enhanced picture quality from
virtually all digital and analog video sources. Runco's sophisticated
parameters for white balance and color gamut control have also been
implemented for precise gray scale tracking and color balance.
Runco's legacy is based on projectors that are not only first in performance
but in installation flexibility, and to continue this tradition, the
company's engineers gave special consideration to the features supporting
imaging power. Both units have been engineered to comply with Imaging
Science FoundationT (ISF) standards for maximum video quality.
These settings ensure custom theater installers can easily set up and
calibrate the projectors to produce the best picture within a customer's
specific viewing conditions. Each ReflectionT model has a wide-range zoom
lens with a highly variable throw distance that allows for installation in
challenging locations. HDMI digital inputs are also offered, which are
compatible with DVI digital interfaces with HDCP. Discrete source input,
aspect ratio, and power selection are provided, as well as an RS-232
interface for seamless integration with automation control systems.
The CL-610/610LT and CL-810 have also been designed within newly refined
cooling systems, which increase efficiency and reduced noise levels.
