InFocus Work Big IN12
Serving travelers for whom every drop in size and weight is important, InFocus on Tuesday released the Work Big IN12. The projector uses newer, compact DLP techniques to slim down the unit to 1.7 inches tall and 3.9 pounds while still delivering a 1024x768 native resolution suitable to computers and to rescaled DVD and HD video input. Presenters also have many options for placing the projector in a room: thanks to a 2X zoom, wide-angle lens, the IN12 can sit less than three feet away from the screen. InFocus claims the system is bright enough for many rooms at 2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and an 1,800:1 contrast ratio.
The IN12 hooks up to any computer or HD source (up to 1080i) over VGA and includes RCA for analog sources. InFocus expects its latest Work Big projector to arrive at stores in late August for $1,249.
