CES Day 3: Runco and Vidikron
The CineWide feature is available in many Runco models, the least expensive of which is the CL-610 (without the Autowide feature). CineWide with Autowide at its least expensive is available in the CL-810 at $26,000.
In the Vidikron booth there was a similarly impressive CineWide setup, this one using the $32,000 (including lens) Vidikron Model 90. The Vidikron setup used a wide aspect, slightly curved screen from Stewart Filmscreen and a high definition server from CodexNovus.
While I saw no evident limitations, in this configuration, from the l280x720 resolution of the demo'ed Runco and Vidikron projectors, I'm anxious to see the first 1920x1080 projectors equipped with this feature.—TJN
