Runco is known for their high-quality projectors - a factor that tends to reflect in the cost. The LS-1 is a bit different though. That's not to say it's not a quality projector, but at $3,995 it's affordable to those that normally wouldn't be able to swing a Runco. The newest in the LightStyle series, the LS-1 offers a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and uses technologies like SuperOnyx, Constant Contrast and ViVix digital video processing to achieve deep black levels. It utilizes the ISF calibration suite which allows the projector to be customized for the room.
The look of the video on the screen isn't the only thing customizable - you can change the look of your projector too. A variety of colors and signature paint selections are available. You can even custom print your own artwork for an additional fee. "With the introduction of the LS-1, we are able to bring the renowned Runco performance to a broader group of video enthusiasts," says marketing VP Jennifer Davis. "Being able to hit this competitive price point enables our integrators more opportunities to sell to a large, previously-untapped market and for homeowners to enjoy the benefits owning a Runco brings."
