InFocus was showing a new 65″ FullHD procap touch system that uses the InFocus “Edge” design and using Cima Nanotech technology (which is not surprising given the JV between Foxconn and Cima and the Foxconn’s interest in InFocus). The INF6502WB will be available in early Q2 with pricing to be decided. Also on display was the current 70″ MondoPad full feature system, while staff told us that an 85″ version with UltraHD will be available “later”. As well as its small stand, InFocus had a “Jupiter” stand in another hall as it acquired that company in October 2015. The firm also bought Vidco, based in Germany in February. As a result of these acquisitions, InFocus will expand its range of collaboration and video wall solutions.

We saw the InFocus INF4030 40″ FullHD procap touch system at CES (Cima NanoTech: Pro-cap Writ Large) and it is part of the DigiEasel range of entry level products. The INF4032 adds wireless connectivity and price goes up from $999 to $1,399.

In projection, we looked at the IN128HSTx which is a FullHD UST projector with 3,300 Ansi lumens of output and a 10W speaker. The unit will start shipping in April. The InFocus LightCast wireless technology is used in its Mondopad, JTouch and DigiEasel products as well as being available as an optional stand alone module. Both AirPlay and Miracast are supported as well as Chrome devices. From Q2, InFocus plans to use white for its B2B models, while black is used for its consumer products.
