InFocus Play Big IN82 Home Theater Projector
InFocus caught the attention of many at this year's CEDIA convention with the unveiling of their first 1080p projector, the Play Big IN82. It is currently the brightest 1080p projector available under $10,000, which makes it a great option for very large screens or ambient light use. It is sold primarily through the CEDIA custom installer network, so it is not available on the Internet. It can be had from your local custom home theater installation specialist for a cool $5499.
