InFocus on Wednesday announced Intel-based Mac support for its line of DisplayLink digital projectors. The support has been added through the release of a driver available for download from InFocus’ Web site.
DisplayLink is a technology that enables video to be transmitted through the USB 2.0 interface instead of through a regular video port. When the driver is installed, it automatically recognizes that a DisplayLink-compatible projector is attached and configures itself. Up to four projectors can be used simultaneously on the same machine, according to InFocus.
The new driver will be embedded on InFocus’ IN3108 meeting room projector, which ships in February. It’s also available for download from InFocus’ site for the previously-released IN110 and IN3100 projectors.
Mac support for some DisplayLink-equipped products first emerged in 2008, when DisplayLink offered beta and then release drivers that enabled devices equipped with the technology to operate with the Mac. This marks InFocus’ release of Mac drivers for its projector products, however.
System requirements call for an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later.
