InFocus Adds 5 Projectors to Entry-Level Lines

InFocus has announced that it will add five new DLP-based projectors to its entry-level lineups. These projectors, part of the IN2100 and IN3100 series, are designed for higher brightness than most entry-level projectors, with 3,000 to 3,500 lumens, and are designed for projecting images in classrooms with a variety of lighting conditions.

The IN2100 series is the first InFocus projector to offer networking functionality for less than $1,000. The company said this series comes standard with a long-life lamp, two computer and assignable audio inputs for multiple presenters, and security features. Starting price is $599, and it is shipping now.

The IN3100 projectors, starting at $1,499, include HDMI support for use with modern notebooks and HDTVs, DisplayLink for USB connectivity, LitePort for PC-free presenting, LiteShow II for wireless connectivity for multiple users over standard WiFi, and Wireless DisplayLink for point-to-point connectivity over Ultra-wideband.

All new projectors in the IN2100 and IN3100 series offer a green-friendly Eco Mode for lower power consumption. They are also designed to consume less than 1 watt in standby mode. The projector models in both series provide native resolutions from SVGA (800 x 60) to a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1,900 x 1,200). The IN2116 and IN3116 are widescreen models. All use the InFocus BrilliantColor implementation and feature a filter-free, dust-resistant design for less maintenance.

The IN2112, IN2114, and IN3114 projectors are available now. The IN2116 and IN3116 will be available this quarter.
