InFocus Launches First 1080p DLP® Home Theater Projector

New Play Big IN82 Offers Superior Performance with Exceptional Visual Design
WILSONVILLE, OR (July 10, 2007) – Today, InFocus (NASDAQ: INFS), the industry pioneer in digital projection technology, introduces the newest addition to the Play Big line-up, the InFocus Play Big IN82, full HD 1080p projector. As the highest performing, single-chip DLP home theater projector in InFocus history, the Play Big IN82 sets a new benchmark in video performance. Whether watching your favorite HD DVD, Blu-ray™ movie or the final swing of the US Open, the Play Big IN82 ensures fans will see every detail of high-definition (HD) 1080p entertainment magnified in perfect clarity.

Armed with the latest DLP® DarkChip3™ technology from Texas Instruments, the InFocus Play Big IN82 full HD 1080p projector boasts a native 4000:1 contrast ratio that can be boosted to a maximum of 12000:1 using the iris that ensures deep, rich blacks, and bright, pure whites while preserving all of the subtle shades in between. As impressively as it performs, the sleek high-gloss, black finish of the Play Big IN82 will complement any décor whether the lights are on or off. Combining style and substance, this new home theater projector is a stunning fusion of precision-tuned video performance and exceptional visual design.

But the Play Big IN82 doesn't stop there. With video optimized brightness of 1,500 Max ANSI lumens - nearly twice as bright as most other home theater projectors are capable of - the IN82 is bright enough to deliver film-standard, D65K color accuracy in nearly any home theater, even with ambient light during a daytime movie or sporting event. The InFocus Color Gamut Calibrator and ISF Day & Night presets even allow installers to "lock in" optimized calibration settings for consumers, adding to the projector's incredible ease-of-use.

In addition, the Play Big IN82 full HD 1080p projector comes with integrated Pixelworks™ DNX™ 10-bit video processing technology and future-proof HDMI 1.3 with Deep Color™ support providing 1.07 billion colors, so every scene is vibrant, crystal clear images, allowing consumers to be immersed in the total experience of an amazingly smooth picture.

The Play Big IN82 is versatile, and accommodates any home entertainment environment with easy connectivity to nearly any consumer electronic device including: HD media players, HD cable and satellite receivers, and broadcast receivers, DVD players, computers and video game consoles.
