Runco hd video processor/scaler - vhd 4403 ultra
Top of the line HD Processor - cost was $15,000 new. For sale at $600
Very little use - has been carefully wrapped and stored.
Can be used with any Projector.
Runco International introduces the Virtual High Definitionô Ultra Processor Series. The VHD -4404 Ultra, 4403 Ultra, and 4402 Ultra were designed and engineered with compatibility in mind, combining 10-bit video decoding and unprecedented aspect-ratio flexibility. ""In this transitional period of video display technology, we needed a video processor that could provide exceptional image quality on any type of display, including CRT, DLP, LCD and plasma displays, without compromise,"" says Mike Woods, Runcoís Technical Director. ""These new processors have the ability to provide the best scan rate options for various levels of CRT projectors, as well as match the native resolution of most fixed-pixel displays so the display itself does not have to rescale the image. In addition, the aspect-ratio control feature enables projectors such as DLPs, which were designed for 4:3 screens, to be used on a 16:9 screen, and still create three geometrically-correct aspect ratios. The entire line of VHD processors/controllers are based on VIVIXô technology, Runcoís sophisticated video scaling, a technique that goes beyond conventional line-doubling with proprietary digital signal processing (DSP). Video scaling analyzes the incoming signalís image content in three ""dimensions"" - vertical, horizontal and time. Runco is currently in negotiations for licensing its VIVIX(tm) technology. The VHD units utilize VIVIX technology to permit viewers to select the mode best suited to the program, or to personal preference, while optimizing the video signal to the systemís display. Each of the VHD processors have a variety of CRT and ""fixed-pixel"" standard outputs - for example, the VHD-4402 Ultra includes 480p, 540p and 600p outputs for CRT projectors as well as an 800 x 600 VESA standard output for fixed pixel devices. The VHD-4403 Ultra adds to the 4402ís outputs with additional 720p and 768p outputs for CRTs, and for fixed pixel displays, 1024x 768 and 1364 x 768 outputs are provided.
I also have the projector as well that was over $30,000 new, although its tentatively sold. $750
