Runco Announces the WindowWall

One of the highlights of their home are the large lake view windows, which also play double duty as video screens. While the Graystones' architecture is all fiction, Runco has devised an oversized display that gives a very similar effect.

The Runco WindowWall is a modular flat panel digital display. You decide how large you want the screen and a grid of smaller screens is made to create a single large display. Each panel is super thin -- only 4.5 inches -- and once put together, have an image-to-image gap of only 0.28 inches.

The 3x3 display configuration provides a 10.1 foot wide screen with 1080p, 16:9 aspect ratio, and 3000:1 contrast ratio. You can select a predesigned configuration or come up with your own to fit your home to a T. You can even curve the screen into nooks within your home.

It reminds us of Magink's SmartBricks, but with more of an eye on video.
