Just got my Sept/Oct issue of Home Entertainment magazine and gave it a quick glance.

I have not read it yet but there is a nice article with a few pictures showing a Runco with Isco lens and explaining scope and constant height. Nice to see this getting some attention. Now if we could only get full anamorphic scope dvds.


If you get this magazine give it a read. If not pick one up at your local news stand. It looks like a nice article.


Titled:

Cinemascope for the Home.

"Runco borrows commercial projector technology to deliver

the worlds best widescreen home video"

Thanks Alan, I'll see if I can get this mag in Australia. Pictures are great for convincing people to go cinemascope.

As an FYI, there is also a good article in the latest issue of Widescreen Review (the 100th issue). It is a lengthy interview with Sam Runco , a good portion of which he discusses constant height and his views on it's future in home theaters.


To quote one of his responses,


"Our world now is pushing for Cinemascope screens, but I don't think it's a mass-market product. It's going to be for the specialist. I don't think the person has to be a tweak; he could just want his theatre to operate the way that the director and the producer intended the movie to be seen. That's all. It's going to be a combinationn of idealists, purists, and people who have the money to be able to buy the very best." - Sam Runco in the September 2005 issue of Widescreen Review

I like "purist". Idealist sounds way too political, and although I wish I could afford to buy the very best, that really only happens in my dreams.

I agree alan, as much as I like buying "The Very Best" I find that I can go with the "Pretty Darn Good"

and wait a little while and the very best will soon become replaced with something else thats even better.

Its a vicious cycle man. :)

Hi Alain,

even at places like Franfurt Airport, here in Germany we can't get this mag. The only chance to get it, is when i'm travel to the states.

If you can send me a copy too, i will be glad to read.


Best

Armin
