Crystal View 2 CRT Projector
Introduction Despite the advent of truly exciting digital projection technology in the past few years, there is still no denying that a “big gun” CRT video projector is the best source for a great-looking video image available on the market today. While digital projectors DLPs and D-ILAs are incredibly bright and appealingly small, an eight or nine-inch CRT projector still creates a picture that looks more like film. Someday, digital projectors may surpass the performance of a CRT, but if you are in the market for the best picture money can buy in 2003, you are likely shopping for a big-time CRT projector. There is a new kid on the block dedicated to absolute video performance with a special angle towards customer service. Crystal View was formed in 2002 to address the needs of the high-end video projection customer. Co-owners Gary Guidi (also owner of HI-REZ, one of the world’s largest and most respected projector ...

Vidikron Vision One CRT Projector
Home theater has improved significantly in the last few years, due to discrete 5.1 audio, larger screen TV's, laserdisc and DVD. Still, what I love so much more about the `big movie theater' experience is the heightened level of realism delivered by fine grain, 35 millimeter film prints with professionally installed and acoustically treated sound systems. Despite the number of big dollar, high-end home theater systems I've had the pleasure of viewing over the years, they have always been second best in my mind to the 35 millimeter experience. That is until, I was treated to a Joe Cali demonstration of the Cello Music and Film System featuring Vidikron's top-of-the-line Vision One 9 inch CRT screen projector. The image from the Vision One with a Faroudja VP 400A quadrupler ($25,000) was life-like and so close to film it pulled me beyond the edge of my seat, right into the picture. Colors were accurate without any ...

Runco DTV-991 CRT Projector
The Runco DTV-991 projector incorporates three 8" liquid-cooled CRT tubes for a super bright, high-resolution picture. The companion SC-4200, video processor, contains both a line quadrupler and a line doubler. Together this dynamic duo projects extraordinary video images with any type of source material. Taking a drive down to Genesis Audio Video in Lake Forest, California (just south of Irvine) I was treated to a demonstration of the Runco combination in Genesis' new home theater room. Featuring Snell's THX speaker system, the room was powered by Proceed amplifiers and accompanied by the Proceed PAV preamp and DSD digital processor incorporating both Dolby Digital and DTS decoders. The Runco DTV-991 Due to its 75 kHz horizontal scanning capability, the DTV-991 handles any video media including the newly adopted High Definition format and PC graphics. Several different aspect ratios and temperature settings can be programmed into its 100 memory locations. At Genesis Audio Video, they calibrated convergence for three ...
