Visual collaboration company InFocus Corporation has unveiled DigiEasel, its latest line of interactive touchscreen displays designed to facilitate teamwork in smaller meeting rooms and huddle spaces.

All Windows 8 touch screen gestures are recognized by the five-touch display, including slide, tap, swipe, pinch and rotate.
InFocus has partnered up with Lightspeed to bring out a range of low-cost 3D projectors meant for classroom use. Medical students are said to especially benefit from the capabilities offered by a 3D projector, as they can see virtual surgeries being performed or see DNA strands or molecules from a new perspective. The IN100 series, IN2116 and IN3116 3D projectors have native resolutions that range from 800x600 to 1280x800 and brightness set at between 2,500 and 3,500 lumens.
InFocus kicked off March by announcing it will soon begin selling thin LCD monitors optimized for business use. Traditionally known for its projectors, the LCDs are a new market for the company, and include 42-, 55- and 65-inch models. All have 1080p native resolution but can also support 1920x1200 resolution sent from computers.
InFocus on Monday announced that its DisplayLink Wireless system for connecting notebooks to projectors without wires now has support for the MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks and not just Windows, as before. The USB device relies on Ultra Wide Band (UWB) wireless technology from Wisair and can pass through HD video content as well as audio. Mac users will also now have the ability to control the projectors connected using the InFocus DisplayLink Wireless unit.
InFocus has released two new DLP projectors meant for the business and educational markets with the IN3902 and IN3904. The main difference between the two is the former's native 1024x768 resolution and the latter's 1280x800 resolution. Shared between the two is compatibility with InFocus' LiteBoard technology, which allows users to interact with the projectors, annotating, appending and highlighting projected content with a wireless remote called the LiteBoard Wand.
InFocus has revived its ScreenPlay projector lineup with the SP8602, which offers native 1080p resolution and is meant for use in home theater installations. The SP8602 uses Texas Instruments' DLP DarkChip technology with BrilliantColor, Pixelworks' DNX 10-bit video processor, and InFocus' proprietary 120Hz motion engine. It's also said to have a 30,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,300 lumens of brightness.
InFocus at the InfoComm 2009 trade show on Monday introduced five new high-performance DLP projectors in two series, all meant for the business market and professional A/V installers. The InFocus IN5300 and IN5500 projectors use DLP technology and all feature interchangeable and adjustable optics for custom tailoring to any room. A dual-lamp option allows users to run the projectors nearly year-round. There is also an optional split-display feature.
Last week's announcement by projector manufacturer InFocus that it is getting bought out by Image Holdings Corporation (IHC) for $39 million may have been premature, according to a Thursday Twice report. InFocus' board of directors said late on Wednesday that it received a last-minute take over proposal, but did not reveal the name of the new suitor. Little other information about the new deal was revealed, other than that the InFocus board will discuss the new offer, but still support the existing offer.
InFocus Corporation on Tuesday announced the availability of its newest DLP projector, the X9, which is positioned in the company's offerings as a lower cost home theater projector, slotting in below the IN80-series. The X9 sports a native resolution of 720p and 16:9 aspect ratio, although it will support 1080i signals and 16:10, 4:3 and 5:4 ratios. Its brightness is rated at 1,800 lumens, while the contrast ratio is fixed at 2500:1. The 180W light bulb will last 3,500 hours, or 4,000 when in a 150W Eco Mode.
