Runco just announced their brand new

LS-12d

list price under 30K
Even comes with 3 pairs of active glasses.

The real kicker here is the new DC-300 outboard video box. This thing has more inputs than you could imagine. EVEN display port! Auto updating firmware via network cable.

Runco’s LS-12d delivers exceptional 3D and 2D performance, sharing many of the technical attributes of the award-winning LightStyle™ projector series. The LS-12d combines a powerful three-chip DLP® engine and a wide array of lens options with Runco’s elegant LightStyle chassis design. With the addition of the LS-12d to Runco’s 3D projection offerings, clients now have a variety of exceptional 3D options to choose from based on their individual needs.

Custom paint and print options with a myriad of color options are available with the LS-12d, including an option to design your own one-of-a-kind projector with Runco FinishPalette™. Beyond beautiful on the outside, the Runco LS-12d is feature rich, including advanced connectivity and the latest-generation video processing and scaling available externally paired with Runco’s Dimension Digital Controller™ DC-300. Rounding out this impressive projector are discrete input source, aspect ratio and power on/off, as well as an RS-232 interface for seamless integration with automation control systems.

Light Output CSMS Specifications: Home Theater Calibration: 1845 ANSI Lumens; 119 Foot-Lamberts (fL); 2,100 ANSI Lumens (uncalibrated)
Contrast Ratio CSMS Contrast Ratio: >250:1 (ANSI); 10,000:1 sequential

I saw this earlier in the day...I am curious as to what, if any, compromises have been made relative to the LS-10d...

Joel,

This should be a LS-10 that is hot rodded with all the new 3d stuff and a new video processor. Otherwise the specs and size look like a LS-10

I went through an awful lot of growing pains with Runco re: video processor included with my LS-10d and truly hope that this video processor does not have similar issues...

Not yet, I have not seen the manual posted yet, but the spec sheet shows it goes up to 120 hz

DTV Compatibility 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p 24/50/60/100/120
so hopefully 2"flashes" per eye.

This is new from the ground up vid eq so only time will.

I didn't think it was particularly bright today, of course it was shown at a reasonably large screen I guess somewhere between 4 and 5 meters wide.

120 Hz, it was shown using a bit of Kungfu Panda in Active 3D.

It is to start shipping in april, but that will be with the old processor, the new DC-300 controller will not ship until in May.

The most likely Planar derived mirror ultra short throw LED projector the VC-100d, was the most intruiging new projector in the line-up, something that has been done by tinkerers, with office/eduction machines, but not 1080P and with a long lifetime and saturated colours due to the LED engine.

LED still needs more power though. The Sim2 1000 lumens projectors is a nice projector, but I would say the 2.5 meter wide Black Diamond 2 screen with 1.4 gain is a bit too large for my taste. At least in combination with the €20K +VAT LED projector. But I like me a bit of ambient light (reserve). In the dark the still of the Strawberry was plenty bright , especially in the Adobe colourspace.

They list the CMCS standards in another part of the website. It is very helpful coming Runco to Runco for relative brightness.
