InFocus Introduces Three New Projectors with BrilliantColor(TM)



    Offering Up to 50% Brighter Colors and a New WXGA Resolution Format

    WILSONVILLE, ORE., November 5 /CNW/ - InFocus Corporation (NASDAQ:  INFS),
the industry pioneer in digital projection technology, today adds three new
projectors to their comprehensive line up of meeting and conference room
solutions: the Work Big IN35, IN35W and IN37. All three InFocus projectors are
based on advanced DLP(R) technology from Texas Instruments(TM) and feature the
highly anticipated BrilliantColor(TM) technology, providing multi-color
processing to enhance and increase color performance on the screen.

    "We are very excited about the announcement of our newest platform of
DLP(R) Projectors featuring BrilliantColor(TM) technology," commented David
Woolf, Senior Director of Product Management at InFocus. "The IN35, IN35W and
IN37 set the standard for power, performance and image quality that future
conference and meeting room projectors will be measured against," Woolf
concluded.

    BrilliantColor(TM) Technology: Up to 50% Brighter Colors

    For years, digital projectors have utilized the same color technology
based on a color gamut defined by three primary colors -- red, green and blue.
But now, with new BrilliantColor(TM) technology, the InFocus IN35, IN35W and
IN37 DLP(R) Projectors process as many as six separate colors - red , green,
blue, yellow, cyan and white. The result is a stunning screen image that
features up to a 50% improvement in color brightness. This new InFocus
projector lineup starts at 2500 ANSI lumens for the IN35 and IN35W and
increases to 3000 ANSI lumens for the IN37. The IN35 and IN37 feature a native
XGA (1024 x 768) resolution, with the IN35W offering a new WXGA (1280 x 800)
wide resolution format. These three new 5lb, portable projectors provide a
very crisp 1400:1 contrast ratio as well as a host of enhanced connectivity
options to give business professionals what they have been asking for and
something audiences everywhere will appreciate.

    Widen Your Horizons: New InFocus WXGA Projector

    According to current industry data, more than 75% of laptops and
notebooks manufactured today are shipping with a native Wide XGA (1280 x 800)
resolution or higher. InFocus has answered with the new Work Big IN35W
featuring BrilliantColor(TM) technology and native WXGA resolution, with
support for HD 720p resolution without the need for scaling and the capability
of presenting up to UXGA (1600 x 1200) resolution. The IN35W takes advantage
of a 16:10 aspect ratio, which gives presenters the ability to fit their
entire notebook or laptop image onto the screen, explore websites without
side-to-side navigation and view high definition multimedia content as it was
originally intended to be displayed. For discerning presenters, the IN35W
DLP(R) Projector featuring BrilliantColor(TM) technology, and boasting a
native WXGA resolution, offers a vast improvement in communications and
presentation impact from previous generation digital projectors.

    Image Clarity & Power: Reap the Rewards

    All three InFocus projectors have a formidable formula: the reliability
of DLP(R) with BrilliantColor(TM) technology, competitive pricing, standard
2-year product and 6-month lamp warranty and the renowned quality you come to
expect from InFocus. Like their predecessors, this new platform of InFocus
projectors offer seamless image adjustment, extreme vertical and horizontal
keystone correction, enhanced connectivity, a filter-free design for 24-hour
operation compatibility and one of the industry's easiest to use menu systems
and keypads. The new InFocus IN35, IN35W and IN37 DLP(R) Projectors featuring
BrilliantColor(TM) technology provide the highest quality and most versatile
set of features to fit even the most challenging presentation environment.

    Availability

    The Work Big IN35, IN35W and IN37 will be available in November with
prices starting at $1,099 and all three projectors can be purchased from
InFocus directly or through authorized resellers. For more information about
