Thanks to InFocus, you don't have to travel to Greece to experience the excitement of the Summer Olympics. Now, anyone can transform a living room into Athens Stadium and view each and every event with crisp, bright, life-sized high-definition images up to 11-feet wide, for less than $2,000.
InFocus(R) Corporation (Nasdaq:INFS), the worldwide leader in digital projection technology and services, is extending the home entertainment category with the introduction of the InFocus ScreenPlay(R)5000, its latest projector for consumers looking to bring their home entertainment experience to the next level.
The InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 is a great enhancement to a home entertainment solution, projecting images much bigger than even the largest televisions, in native HD. The InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 connects with nearly any home-electronics device including: DVD players, satellite receivers, high-definition satellite and cable receivers, computers and video game consoles, to project everything from sports to movies and event television, in larger-than-life size. With an increase in HD broadcasts of sporting events, sports enthusiasts will love using the InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 because it projects super-sized athletes that make competition come to life in a way not possible with a television or other smaller display devices.
"Projectors have the ability to transform a typical viewing experience into an action-packed adventure where the content comes to life," said Candace Petersen, vice president, Corporate Marketing and Strategy at InFocus. "The InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 gives consumers an affordable, easy-to-use solution with native HD clarity for enriching home entertainment options."
The InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 is easy for the entire family to use and enjoy. A backlit remote control and a smart menu system make it simple to operate even in a dark room.
From its native 720p 16:9 format, which perfectly matches movie and high-definition aspect ratios, 1100 video-optimized lumens and a 1200:1 calibrated contrast ratio, the InFocus ScreenPlay 5000, utilizing LCD technology, delivers an amazingly bright, sharp picture. To complete the home entertainment solution, the InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 has a 12-volt screen trigger, which can be used to automatically raise and lower an electronic screen when the projector is powered on/off. The projector also features DVI with HDCP and automatic keystone correction.
At only 7.5 pounds (3.4 kg)- the InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 can be installed in a permanent location such as a family room or it can be set on a tabletop and stored out of sight when not in use.
The InFocus ScreenPlay 5000 will be available in July and can be purchased at leading electronic retailers, home theater dealers, or online.
