InFocus Unveils Impressive, Affordable XGA ProjectorIndustry Leader Expands Product Line Choices For Cost-Conscious and First-Time Users
WILSONVILLE, Ore., June 5, 2001 - InFocus(r) Corporation (Nasdaq:INFS), (OSE: IFC), the worldwide leader in digital projection, enhances their award-winning product line with the LP290-a LCD projector that offers users an impressive feature set at an attractive price. Taking the place of overheads, flipcharts and slides, the LP290 enables buyers on a tight budget to leverage InFocus technology for dynamic, attention-grabbing presentations.
In a December 2000 report on PC displays and projectors, IDC confirms that projectors have become essential business tools and are increasingly being used as a means by which people collaborate and share information. InFocus introduces the LP290 in response to the growing demand for high-performance projectors among users on tight-budgets, which includes markets such as small office/home office, government agencies and education. By offering customers affordable, yet powerful projection solutions, InFocus affirms its dedication to expanding the projection category and attracting new users.
The XGA-resolution LP290 incorporates LCD technology for bright, crisp images at 1100 lumens. The projector boasts a quiet operation, short throw zoom lens, video capability and a remote control. Other features such as monitor loop-through, ceiling mount options and power-on/off from the remote make this projector the perfect tool for easy installation or for the conference room table.
"With the five pound LP290, InFocus offers buyers a reliable, affordable solution without compromising sophisticated features or portability," said Pierre Richer, director of product marketing, InFocus Corporation. "This combination makes the projector especially attractive to education and government offices, as well as first-time users."
Warranties and Availability
The LP290 is available in June at an estimated street price of US$3,999. It comes with a two-year standard product warranty, 7x24 Technical Support and one year of ProXchange(tm) (available in N. America only), offering the assurance that if an issue cannot be solved quickly over the phone, a replacement projector will be sent by the next business day.
