has introduced three new Mac-compatible digital projectors. One unit is designed for maximum portability while the other two offer features more in line with what price-conscious buyers are looking for.
The LP70 is InFocus’ new portable projector. It weights about 2.4 pounds and is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, measuring at less than 90 cubic inches, according to the company. The LP70 sports an all in one design, intelligent electronics to optimize images based on existing light conditions, dual sensors for maximum remote control flexibility, and a leveling foot to provide horizontal image control.
The LP70 sports 1100 lumens of brightness, and 800:1 contrast ration and native XGA (1024×768 pixel) resolution. It supports computer and video inputs, including support for PAL, NTSC and SECAM. It also sports an M1-DA connector, which InFocus said, makes it ready for future wireless applications.
The LP70 is still a way off from coming to retail — it’s not expected until September 2. When it does get here, though, look for it with an estimated street price of about US$3,199.
InFocus Corp. also introduced two new products for its RP line. The RP10x and the RP10s cost US$2,399 and $1,399 respectively, and InFocus said that both projectors have been developed to appeal to cost-conscious organizations that are looking to replace overheads, flip charts and slides with digital projection technology.
The RP10x operates at XGA resolution (1024×768), while the RP10s sports SVGA (800×600) resolution. Both projectors feature digital keystone correction, zoom and focus, DVD and VHS compatibility and power cycling from the remote. The projectors produce images at 900 and 800 lumens respectively, and both weigh in at about 4.7 pounds.
Look for the new RP10x and RP10s to hit store shelves in July.
