Beaverton, OR - November 2, 2010 - Runco®, the leading brand in luxury display solutions, is teaming up with top dealers across the country to demonstrate the latest home theater technology, including three of Runco's new display solutions. These unique Open Houses will be taking place from October through December and will feature Runco's new 3Dimension™ Series D -73d 3D projector, LightStyle™ Series LS -10 projector, and Vistage™ Series V -63HD ultra -thin flat panel display.

Consumers are invited to visit these showrooms for an exclusive demonstration and consultation with dealers about how to create their own personal home theater viewing haven.

Highlighting the Open House are the award -winning Runco 3Dimension Series D -73d 3D projector, which integrates 3D visualization technology that is based on the science of how the human eye and brain process actual depth and dimension in real life. Runco has created a flawless stereoscopic video reproduction that is unlike anything else in the home or private cinema market. Runco's vastly -superior approach to 3D visualization, CSV™ (Constant Stereoscopic Video), enables seamless decoding, syncing and merging of stereo images and delivers a constant HD image to each eye without the flicker, distortion, or discomfort inherent in other approaches. Runco CSV utilizes unique passive -glasses technology, which is proven to be superior for the viewer and is usually only available in the finest public theaters. Also, incredibly important when choosing a 3D display, the Runco 3Dimension Series will deliver both a spectacular 2D and 3D viewing experience with zero compromise.

Also, on display is the newest member of Runco's LightStyle Series, the LS -10. The LS10 is a 3 -chip DLP® full high -definition projector that has been designed to excel in both the dedicated theater as well as other rooms in the home, such as media rooms, basements, and dens. It delivers uncompromised 1080p DLP® 3 -chip video performance at an astounding value. The LS -10 boasts flawless high -definition imagery, practical integration features, and a sophisticated design that has won critical acclaim for its ability to complement any room's décor, thanks to the company's FinishPalette™ offerings. FinishPalette enables full -color, large -format projector design options, including licensed logos from favorite NCAA® collegiate sports programs, a gallery of artist impressions, and the option to integrate custom artwork.

Representing an entire line of 3D -ready flat panel displays, Runco Vistage offers a stylish flat panel solution that can be personalized to reflect the style and passions of the homeowner. Gorgeous and very sleek, the Runco Vistage Series displays measure 1.7 inches thin. The unique halo -shaped table stand conceals all the cables and contributes to the streamline look and the optional rear -panel veil, cloaks the display and offers brilliant designs that can be created to match even the most elaborate or eclectic decor.
