New Proxima Projector Provides Wireless Mobile Projection
WILSONVILLE, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 3, 2003--InFocus(R) Corporation (Nasdaq:INFS) (OSE:IFC), the worldwide leader in digital projection technology and services, continues to enhance the Proxima portfolio with the announcement of the DP1200x, the first wireless-ready, personal projector.
The DP1200x works with InFocus LiteShow(R), the new wireless solution that enables the easiest, most secure wireless projection. LiteShow provides the power of freedom and flexibility, enabling users to project anytime and anywhere. In addition, LiteShow minimizes equipment set-up and teardown and prevents lost or forgotten cables.
Weighing in at a feather-light, sub two pounds (0.9 kg), the DP1200x presents a sleek, narrow profile as thin as a paperback book in the shape of a boarding pass that was designed to fit into a briefcase along side a notebook computer, making it easy to stow and carry all in one bag.
The design sets the benchmark for simplicity-of-use and unencumbered portability. The DP1200x packs the power of larger projectors while being the ultimate statement of freedom, flexibility and quality for business professionals who want to project their best ideas as well as their best image -- all from one piece of luggage (the projector comes with a protective sleeve instead of a traditional carry case).
"In response to our customer and partner research, we have developed the lightest, most valuable sub, two-pound projector," said John V. Harker, Chairman, President and CEO of InFocus. "We've made it possible to take projectors anywhere without compromising the confidence of those presenting. This progressive, innovative approach to product design keeps us at the forefront of meeting the needs of our customers."
The revolutionary size and shape of this new projector did not deter InFocus from delivering XGA (1024 x 768) native resolution, 1100 lumens, a 2000:1 contrast ratio and 16.7 million colors into the DP1200x. The projector can throw an image between 2.7" to 22.2' wide from distances of 1.5 to 5 meters. Using UHP BackMirror technology from Philips, the DP1200x is the first projector to include an innovative lamp system called UHP Micro Lamp allowing the smaller, more convenient size not typically found with projectors.
The DP1200x will be available this summer. For more information, please visit www.infocus.com.
