True home entertainment complete with front projection, once the bastion of the ultra rich, is now available and affordable to any big-screen enthusiast with InFocus' newest high-quality, affordable front projector. InFocus(R) Corporation (Nasdaq:INFS), the worldwide leader in digital projection technology and services, today announced the InFocus ScreenPlay 4805, its newest projector for consumers looking to transform their homes into a palace of entertainment. Now, anyone can watch the latest DVD releases, high-definition broadcasts, biggest sports events, season finales of favorite TV shows and play video games on screens measuring up to twelve feet across, with unmatched image quality.
Consumers can easily connect all of their home entertainment components because the InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 is compatible with a broad range of entertainment sources such as DVD players, satellite receivers, high-definition broadcasts, TV's, computers and video game consoles. The projector is native 16:9 resolution, meaning the onscreen image doesn't have to be compromised from its intended format, and includes a 2000:1 contrast ratio to deliver the brightest whites and best black scene detail. Unrivaled connectivity includes DVI with HDCP and a 12-volt screen trigger.
"The ScreenPlay 4805 delivers amazing, larger-than-life images at a price consumers can afford so everyone can experience true home entertainment," said Scott Hix, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Americas Business Unit at InFocus. "The ScreenPlay 4805 features the best image quality, brightness and color-richness in its price category, making it a must-have for the largest screen viewing experience at home."
The ScreenPlay 4805 boasts a unique color system that provides more details and smoother images, and uses the newest 480p DLP(TM) technology from Texas Instruments to create sharper images with life-like colors that won't deteriorate over time. Also, with Academy-Award(C) winning enhanced Faroudja DCDi(TM) processing, the InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 projects images that are sharper and artifact-free ensuring diagonal lines in the image do not have jagged edges.
The design of the projector allows it to be mounted on the ceiling or wall, or placed on a tabletop, for versatile and convenient home use. This means the 6.8-pound projector is non-obtrusive enough to be tucked into the closet when not in use. Additionally, the InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 features a 3,000 hour lamp life -- longer than most others available today, thus lowering overall cost of ownership.
With the Summer Olympics and baseball right around the corner, front projection allows anyone to experience the same adrenaline-filled action of actually being at the games. And kids love using it with their video game systems because the ScreenPlay 4805 projects life-sized characters that look like they could take you on!
InFocus' dedication to ease-of-use has resulted in a family of ScreenPlay home projectors that are user-friendly all the way down to the remote control, which is backlit and includes an intuitive menu system that makes it easy to operate even in the darkest of rooms. For InFocus customers, these details along with the unmatched home entertainment experience, are why they choose the award-winning family of ScreenPlay projectors.
The InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 will be available in Q2 2004, and can be purchased at leading electronic retailers, home theater dealers, AV dealers or online at www.infocus.com.
