|LJR III THX
SUPER VIDEO DISC PLAYER
Production of the highly acclaimed
Runco LJR II THX Laser Disc Player is coming to an end and this product
will be discontinued in January, 1997.
Development of its successor, the new LJR III, is under way. The LJR III
will be an exciting new product for Runco. It will be a combination or
"Combi" player capable of playing existing Laser Disc and CD
technologies as well as the emerging DVD format.
This configuration allows us to offer the latest DVD technology while
supporting the still excellent laser disc format and the vast array of
10,000 available titles, as well as the extensive libraries of laser
disc software owned by many consumers.
The new LJR III will be a full-featured, high end machine with an
advanced audio section capable of both Dolby Digital (AC-3) and DTS
reproduction. The LJR III will be compatable with all 5.1 channel
In addition, the LJR III will be among the first THX certified DVD
players. Our 1997 introduction date for this product is dependent upon
the THX engineering and certification process as well as the
availability of sufficient DVD software to make this new format viable.
We anticipate a mid 1997 release date and we will provide updates on the
LJR III development program as progress continues.
