Planar has announced the launch of a new LED-based projector aimed at home users. The new projector is the Runco QuantumColor Q-750i and Q-750d units. The projectors differ from traditional projectors in that they have no lamp and are powered by LEDs.
The LEDs will last much longer than the typical lamp and require less power to operate. The power reduction is pegged at 70% for the projector. The projectors use the Runco Smartcolor system to maintain image realism.

The Q-750d projector has a dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000:1 or better. Inputs include HDMI and RS-232 and the projector supports 1080p resolution. Light output with the LED projector is 700 ANSI lumens. The big downside is the price, the 750i sells for $14,995 and the 750d sells for $17,995.
