The Runco VX-3000 is the most affordable VideoXtreme HD projector, available with internal processing and scaling or with Runco’s latest-generation, award-winning external DHD™ controller/processor, in the Runco single-chip DLP projector line-up. Known for being feature rich and performance heavy, this VideoXtreme projector features a native 1080p projector resolution DLP light engine with Runco’s powerful SuperOnyx™ technology for bright, pristine, high-definition images.

The VideoXtreme VX-3000i, VX-3000i Ultra, VX-3000d and VX-3000d Ultra projectors are  compatible with Runco’s legendary CineWide and AutoScope technology,which provide uncompromised widescreen reproduction of movies originally filmed in the CinemaScope™ 2.35:1 format. It maintains constant vertical height on the screen just as in a movie theater. When a viewer transitions from 1.78:1 (16:9) program material to superwide 2.35:1, the image simply gets wider while full screen height is maintained, eliminating black bars.

Runco’s advanced Vivix™ digital video processing is included to enhance picture quality from standard video sources, as well as provide artifact-free scaling. Also included are discrete input source, aspect ratio, power on/off, HDMI™ input and an RS-232 interface for seamless integration with automation control systems.
