Given the fact that 3D entertainment is such a hot trend these days (well, as mentioned before, at least as far as the manufacturers and press are concerned, since consumers are not rushing-in to adopt these solutions), we're seeing more and more products of this type being rolled onto the market, one of the latest companies to come up with such an offering being Planar, who's just unveiled its new Runco 3Dimension Series projectors.
The 3D solution is based on Runco
's proprietary CSV (Constant Stereoscopic Video) architecture that enables seamless decoding, syncing and merging of stereo images and delivers a constant HD image to each eye without the flicker, distortion, or discomfort.
The Runco CSV utilizes unique passive-glasses technology, rather than active shutter glasses, making it a bit more user-friendly.
The new Runco 3Dimension Series D-73d projector is based on an evolution of Runco's award-winning lampless LED technology.
Runco's InfiniLight boasts a significant reduction in power consumption, a mercury-free illumination system, and InstantOn, which instantly produces an image and eliminates the need to put the projector in standby mode.
The D-73d also offers Runco's Personal Color Equalizer (PCE), which enables owners to create color settings from the largest pallet ever available and project images exactly to their preferences.
"The biggest buzz right now in home displays is 3D
and Runco has worked to create a solution that is truly superior to anything else available in the market," stated Planar CEO Gerry Perkel.
"Unlike the mass-market 3DTV's available today that have been met with a lukewarm response, Runco's approach to 3D mirrors, and, to a large extent, surpasses, the experience that consumers have seen in public theaters."
"Using passive glasses, our large-screen solution creates an incomparable 3D experience in the home."
O course, what Planar's CEO doesn't say, at least not directly, is just how much customers will have to cough up in order to enjoy the aforementioned experience, since we're talking about a pretty hefty sum, of around $49,995 MSRP, when the Runco D-73d arrives in stores in Q4 2010.
