vidikronVidikron ships projector:
Whoa blast from past, I was aware that Runco had purchased the Vidikron brand and planned on selling products under the venerable Italian manufacturers name, but in all honesty I was unaware they had already begun. The model 100 LightAmp projector is a 3 chip 16:9 native DLP projector, with a claimed light output of 3500 ANSI lumens. I remember the ‘good ol days’ when hanging a Vidikron was like turning over the switch in my Alfa Romeo GTV-6, maybe it would start maybe it wouldn’t. Although with the acquisition by Runco surely quality control has improved.

Home Entertainment 2004 West, Canceled:
The topic pretty much sums it up, but I just wanted to restate that the Home Entertainment 2004 West, show in San Francisco has been canceled. So my prior recommendation to see the show if you had a chance is moot. The cancellation is due to the hotel labor issue in San Francisco. The next Home Entertainment Show is scheduled for April 28th through May 1st 2005 in New York City.
