Of course, what Runco considers affordable and what the rest of us consider affordable can be two very different things.
The folks at Runco don't make cheap projectors. Their high-end products aren't the kind of thing that most people can afford, and even those that can have to think a bit about before they dive in. Recently though, Runco has been reaching towards lower price points and the LS-12d is the result. The $27,995 LS-12d.
The LS-12d offers 3D capabilities and a 1080p picture. You can choose to go with active or passive 3D since the projector handles both, but the three pairs of active glasses make the choice fairly easy. The LS-12d also comes with the DC-300 video processor, scaler and controller, packed full of calibration tools. If you pick up the DC-300 on its own it's 9,995.
"With the release of the LS-12d and DC-300, Runco delivers exceptional 2D and 3D at an affordable price for dedicated or flex-theaters," says marketing VP Jennifer Davis. "The wide range of throw ratios, combined with Runco's CineGlide anamorphic lens options and customizable FinishPalette options make it a truly exciting 3D offering perfect for virtually any environment."
