InFocus Enables “Plug and Play” for Macs

In an effort to support the growing demand for Mac applications in projection, InFocus Corporation, last week announced the availability of the InFocus DisplayLink support for Mac, a display driver that allows Intel-based Apple computers to transmit audio and video content over a standard USB connection for instant set-up with DisplayLink enabled InFocus projectors.

By using the DisplayLink feature, presenters using Macs can enjoy “plug and project” convenience by simply connecting a standard USB 2.0 cable to the projector. The InFocus DisplayLink Mac driver is immediately detected by the computer and will configure with the DisplayLink enabled InFocus projector settings within seconds — resulting in zero set up time and instant screen switching so users can start using the projector instantly. Users will appreciate DisplayLink’s multi-display capability, which makes it possible to project up to four projectors simultaneously from just one computer.

Who cares?  Well, this feature allows users to create “video walls,” and presentations of multiple content sources during live meetings (from the built-in video card of a MAC), in addition to making it an interesting solution for a monitor-wall on-the-fly.
