InFocus Unveils Premium HD Projectors for Large Venues

Flexible installation and stunning image quality offer Pro AV installers a superior choice

InFocusr Corp., a digital display technology leader and visual collaboration champion, today unveiled its latest premium HD projector models-the IN5533 and IN5535. The newest additions to the IN5500 series of large venue projectors lead the category with an incredible balance of color, performance and flexibility to ease integration into any room, regardless of size or dimensions.

The IN5533 and IN5535 enable professional AV installers to choose between five lens options-from short throw to ultra-long throw. Combined with motorized horizontal and vertical lens shift and automatic sensors to eliminate optical distortions commonly encountered with other projectors, the IN5500 series offers great flexibility to fit a large variety of applications and environments including legacy installations.

"Spitball Media produces large scale video installations for corporate events to some of the nation's largest music festivals. We count on the IN5500 series to eliminate a lot of the technical headaches in delivering HD video," said Joel Jackson, production director, Spitball Media. "Besides easy setup, including integration with existing room control systems, we can take advantage of the advanced network management features to deliver media remotely to multiple installations around the country."

High Brightness and High Definition for Demanding Environments
Visual displays are more common than ever, requiring incredible performance and flexibility to fit almost any environment imaginable. The IN5533 and IN5535 respectively offer WXGA (1280x800) and WUXGA (1920x1200) native resolution for wider space to project high resolution images for current and future computer operating systems and for full high definition 1080p video. Plus, the IN5500 series' six-segment color wheel delivers an incredibly wide range of rich, true-to-life colors and incredibly smooth color gradations. Both IN5500 models come with dual lamps for high brightness of 6,000 lumens and fail-safe backup protection. They also utilize the latest DLPr DarkChipT technology and InFocus BrilliantColorT implementation for crisp, seamless, film-like images even in rooms with high ambient light.

Connectivity for the Future
The IN5500 series features full analog and digital connectivity, including HD15, HDMI 1.3, VGA, USB, BNC and component inputs, and is engineered to be Wireless-Ready with LiteShow IIIT for wireless transmission of audio, video, and data content. Organizations can use the InFocus SplitScreenT technology in the IN5500 series to project two sources simultaneously and in a variety of configurations, ideal for videoconferencing and distance learning where multiple presentations or video feeds must be viewed side-by-side. The IN5500 series also includes embedded networking and RS232 control for full projector management and room control system integration.

Elegant Styling to Suit Any Room
The IN5533 and IN5535 fit seamlessly into any space with multiple color skin options including Matte Black, Matte White, Glossy Black, Wood Grain or pre-primed skins for a custom design. An integrated cable management system allows easy access to the connector panel while completely hiding the cables, enabling the projector to look as good as any space it is placed in. In addition, the signature InFocus 'Blue Iris' glow ring provides users a unique notification when the projector is powering up and down, eliminating the guess-work at what a "beep" or flashing light means.

"We wanted to offer a premium display solution that will create images almost anywhere an installer can dream up," says Benjamin Joy, Director of Product Management for InFocus. "With incredible flexibility, high performance and all-around great styling, the IN5500 is a very smart choice for a wide range of organizations and needs."

The IN5533 (WXGA, 1280x800) model is available now and the IN5535 (WUXGA, 1920x1200) model will be available in November.
