InFocus LightCast enables the only projectors that are Miracast, AirPlay and Chrome compatible for wireless casting from any device in the classroom and the conference room
InfoComm, LAS VEGAS, NV. – June 8, 2016 — Projection and collaboration pioneer InFocus Corporation (www.infocus.com) announces four new projector lines that set new standards for flexibility, power, performance and wireless connectivity, today at InfoComm 2016. Each is equipped with the latest in technology from short-throw lenses, to embedded storage, to powerful brightness to InFocus LightCast technology, which allows native casting for AirPlay, Miracast, or Chrome to wirelessly display content and enable anyone to cast content from their own device. The new lines with LightCast include built-in whiteboard tools and a web browser to enable Internet access without connecting to a separate device. InFocus’ new projector fleet is breaking barriers to wireless projection and collaboration while offering the right solution for every user in every space and application.
“InFocus is the only company providing customers with easy ways to connect wirelessly, from any device, and share content. With LightCast, we’ve added wireless technology to our projectors that’s compatible with content from any device, making collaboration possible with every presentation,” said David Duncan, InFocus director of projection product management. “We are offering affordable and flexible solutions that are built for any application and nearly any space, from large venues to conference rooms to brightly lit classrooms.”
The IN2120x network projectors offer high brightness with up to 4,200 lumen images, 1080p resolution, 3D capability and flexible connectivity options including HDMI and VGA, which makes them ideal for mid-sized conference rooms and classrooms that have high ambient light. While the IN2124x, IN2126x and IN2128HDx offer PC-free presentation with onboard storage and memory, the IN2124LC, IN2126LC and IN2128HDLC add wireless device casting with LightCast technology. Boasting impressive brightness, the IN2120x network projectors increases effectiveness and visibility of presentations and lessons and with minimal IT configuration needed, the IN2120x projectors connect to internal networks and sync with Crestron or AMX systems.
Debuting today, the IN5148HD is InFocus’ new large-venue projector. IN5148HD comes with full, crisp 1080p high-definition resolution, to show presentations the way they were meant to be seen on the big screen. IN5148HD has 5,000 lumens and can display bright images even with the lights on. Flexible 1.49-3.02 throw ratio and 2:1 zoom mean these projectors fit 90 percent of pre-existing applications with motorized lens shifting, focusing, and zooming. IN5148HDLC also comes with LightCast for wireless casting of content from any MiraCast, AirPlay or Chrome device in large format, and is HDBaseT certified for interoperability and ease of install.
For ultimate flexibility, InFocus combines vivid projection with high-quality audio in its new IN120x Series, which includes the IN124x, and IN126x, as well as previously announced IN128HDx, IN128HDSTx, with 1080p HD resolution. The low-cost IN120x projectors are perfect for classrooms and offices because each model features 4000 lumens and a high 15,000:1 contrast ratio, as well as exceptional room-filling sound. Great for installation or tabletop flexibility even when placed close to the screen, the IN128HDSTx projector has a short throw ratio, allowing users to create big pictures in tight spaces while minimizing shadows. This value-packed projector is a great fit for schools and government facilities on a budget, which are available today.
Finally, InFocus has added LightCast technology to the recently released IN1110 ultra-mobile series of projectors. The affordable IN1116LC comes with built-in 4GB memory and a USB port so users can leave their laptop behind and present on-the-go, while the IN1118HDLC adds full high-definition resolution. Both are compact and lightweight projectors with the most lumens per pound for flawless performance everywhere. And now the IN1110 series make any meeting collaborative with the addition of wireless content sharing via LightCast.
The new projectors will be introduced today at InfoComm 2016 in InFocus booth North Hall, #N1417. All projectors will be available in July and can be purchased through InFocus authorized resellers or at www.infocusdirect.com.
