Affordable Value for Those Seeking Image Quality in Super Size

WILSONVILLE, OR (May 3, 2005) –Business by day, entertainment by night. Imagine relying on a single product to deliver a well-polished sales presentation and to also host an envy-inducing movie night with friends. Today, with the introduction of the InFocus X3™, InFocus® Corporation (Nasdaq:INFS), the worldwide leader in digital projection technology and services, is offering consumers a powerful projector designed for flexible uses at work, school and play.

The InFocus X3, a multi-talented projector, can be utilized to present complicated data including charts, graphs and detailed lesson plans in the office or classroom, as well as at home with family and friends to watch a summer blockbuster or play a new videogame.

With the new InFocus X3, consumers will experience crisp, clear data and video projected every time in wall-filling sizes, because of the extensive connectivity enabling use with computers, PDAs, DVD players, satellite TV receivers, video game consoles and other business tools and consumer electronic devices.

"As people discover the many uses of projection at home, school and work, InFocus is delivering quality products such as the new InFocus X3 that provide versatility, convenience and great image quality," said Scott Ballantyne, Chief Marketing Officer, InFocus Corporation. "If consumers are looking to use data and multimedia to dynamically convey information or experience entertainment in new ways, the InFocus X3 is an affordable solution that will make a big impact."

The introduction of the InFocus X3 builds upon the all-time, best-selling X series platform according to data verified by Pacific Media Associates (PMA) and offers award-winning projection technology including enhanced video performance and native XGA resolution for crisp picture quality. The InFocus X3 also benefits from the InFocus X series reliability standards with tests demonstrating it is the most reliable projector in the industry ensuring customers affordable value from the industry leader.

"The X series product family continues to pave the way for InFocus in the multi-use category," said Bill Coggshall of Pacific Media Associates. "Our research validates the strength and market longevity of the InFocus X series platform and confirms an overall trust in the InFocus brand."

At 6.8 lbs., the InFocus X3 provides excellent video quality with 1600 lumens, 2000:1 contrast ratio and automatic deinterlacing for smooth, true-to-life images that meet the needs of business presentations and provides outstanding projection for after-work entertainment. The InFocus X3 also offers superior video quality through the integration of advanced technology including DarkChip2 DLP™ technology from Texas Instruments® for sharp, colorful images that won't deteriorate over time and provide amazing picture-quality when displaying DVDs or television.

Additionally, the X3 is wirelessly enabled and can be used with InFocus LiteShow®, InFocus' secure wireless solution, to change the way consumers view and share information in a collaborative setting. Now multiple business presenters can share the projector with a touch of a button instead of hassling with a cable stretched across the table or room. To enhance the experience, InFocus offers several accessories for the X3, including portable screens for the mobile professional or TV enthusiast, ceiling mounts, cables, and specialized carry cases with color-coded cable organizers.

The InFocus X3 will be available in May 2005 for $1,199. For more information about the InFocus X3 and complementary products, please visit
