InFocus Introduces Three New BYOD-Capable Projector Lines

InFocus Corporation has introduced three new projector lines, the IN130, IN130ST and IN2130 Series, which all integrate BYOD capabilities.

The new InFocus projectors are customizable with the new TechStation internal HDMI 1.4 bay that lets users add a Google Chromecast, Intel Computer Stick, InFocus SimpleShare, Asus Chromebit, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Android TV Stick or any other HDMI-compatible device into the bay. Educators and presenters can then use the features of the connected HDMI device to start presenting, stream audio or video, cast content, etc. using compatible devices such as laptops, tablets or smartphones.

Each of the IN130, IN130ST and IN2130 projectors are integrated with what InFocus is calling “whisper-quiet fans” using InFocus’s Smooth Flow fan design. All of them are specified with a lamp life of up to 15,000 hours, 28,500:1 contrast ratio and BrilliantColor DLP imaging technology.

The IN130 Series replaces the IN120x Series with three models — IN134, IN136, IN138HD. The IN130ST Series brings new short-throw projectors to replace the IN120STx line with IN134ST, IN136ST, and IN138HDST models for a 100-inch image from less than four feet away.

For meeting rooms and huddle spaces where BYOD is required, InFocus has introduced the new IN2130 Series to replace the IN2120x Series. The three projector models — IN2134, IN2136 and IN2138HD — are an all-in-one business solution with 4,500 lumens of brightness. Resolutions in the line are 1024×768, 1920×1080 or 1920×1200.

All nine new projector models from InFocus include a powered HDMI port for mobile charging and device power.

The IN130, IN130ST, and IN2130 Series are available worldwide starting in mid-November with prices ranging from $700 to $1,400. You can see all the specs here.
