Are you worried that a projector will eat up your energy budget? No? Neither are we. But just in case, Runco has come up with a new “lampless” LED projector that uses about 70 percent less power than a traditional DLP projector.
But energy savings isn’t the only reason to be excited about the new Runco QuantumColor Q-650i. In fact it’s not even near the top of the list. This unit incorporates several of Runco’s proprietary picture features, including SmartColor, ColorContrast, Q-lumens, and InstantOn.
One thing to note, this is not a projector designed for a very large screen theater. Runco recommends it for screen
sizes 50- to 65-inches ( Update: Runco has corrected that to 72-92) with a maximum of 82 108. So if your mind if set on a 100-inch or larger screen, then you should check out the Q-1500d instead. Update: Runco now reports that the maximum screen size is 108-inches.
The Q-650i ships to Runco dealers later this month for $9,999.
