I cant get a big enough screen with the Runco RS1100 cine-wide in my theatre because of the throw distance alteration with the runco cine-wide lens.


Is there an after market solution that doesnt affect throw distance?

Why should I make sure it uses a HE?


I wanted to use the Runco RS1100 Cine-wide - but their lens is a VC lens and I cant make it fit in my theatre. So I plan to purchase an aftermarket anamorphic lens - probably the ISCO?

Because, as I explained above, an HE lens will deliver a larger image for a given throw distance, and you said

An Isco III should work for you as well, but you may not have the integration between lens and scaler that you would if you chose the Runco option that includes an HE lens. Of course, that will cost you $. But so will the Isco III and a stand-alone scaler.
