Runco's New Vistage Displays Are Slick But Odd  Print E-mail

The name Runco is most commonly associated with projectors, but that doesn't mean the company doesn't make TVs too.  The new Vistage series of flat panel sets – Runco doesn't specify but we're guessing they're plasmas – are impressive, but just a little bit odd too.

The V-50HD, 58HD and 63HD are 3D ready, feature glass fronts to create a more uniform finish and utilize an Emissive Cell Structure for greater brightness and better viewing angles.  They measure in at 1.7 inches and come with a halo-shaped table stand that conceals cables and make the whole thing incredibly classy.

But let's say you hate that classy look.  In that case, you can get a custom rear panel with wood, fabric, or leather style finishes.  You can take it a step further still and get the logo of your favorite NCAA team, or a hand-painted mural too.  It's a strange option that looks tacked on, but it's there if people want it.

Runco's Vistage displays will be available in December.  Prices start at $5,995.
