InFocus Announces Four New Projector Lines

The new projectors from InFocus have a strong emphasis on wireless connectivity. Their “LightCast” name means the device can support Miracast, Airplay and Chrome wireless content sharing. It is implemented in a USB dongle inserted into the projector.

“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.

One of the new projector lines that include the LightCast capability is line of IN2120x network lamp-based DLP projectors. They offer up to 4,200 lumen images, 1080p resolution, 3D capability and flexible connectivity options including HDMI and VGA, plus connection to internal networks and sync with Crestron or AMX systems. The IN2124x, IN2126x and IN2128HDx offer PC-free presentation with onboard storage and memory, while the IN2124LC, IN2126LC and IN2128HDLC add wireless device casting with LightCast technology.
