InFocus Introduces Network Ready, Large Meeting Room Projector

3000 lumens, 13.2 pounds, $6,199 (October 03, 2001)
InFocus Corporation announced the Proxima DP8000, a powerful LCD projector suitable for advanced projection applications. The DP8000 facilitates Web and video conferencing and e-learning, and is designed for large meeting rooms, training rooms and classrooms. The DP8000 offers built-in networking capabilities which support the emergence of projectors as managed assets on the corporate network.

This, in turn, helps IT departments reduce total cost of projector ownership. Unique networking capability together with multiple connectivity options and an easy-to-install form factor make the DP8000 the perfect solution for system integrators installing multiple projectors throughout an organization.

In addition, the DP8000 is the first projector to offer support for the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard, which protects digital content over the DVI (Digital Visual Interface) connection and allows straight digital-to-digital signals. With HDCP, studios now have the means to protect high definition content from unauthorized use or reproduction. InFocus is the first projector manufacturer to support the HDCP standard.

The DP8000 produces incredibly bright and clear images, with native XGA resolution and 3000 lumens of brightness, and a contrast ratio of 800:1. At 13.2 pounds, the DP8000 is about half the size of other projectors producing 3000 lumens, meaning an easier-to-install solution for system integrators. In addition to Web and video teleconferencing, the P8000 can be used to view DVD, HDTV, digital photos and other digital content geared toward e-learning and distance learning environments. Inputs including BNC x 5, RGB, component video, S-video and composite video, and
RS-232 control, allow for numerous sources to be connected simultaneously, making the DP8000 ideal for large meeting room integration. Operating noise is minimized at less than 34dB, perfect for environments that demand quiet operation.

This network-ready projector, when paired with future networking software from InFocus Corporation, works through network-management standards such as Microsoft Management Console to enable configuration, administration and control of the projector-or a fleet of projectors-from a remote console.

The Proxima DP8000 will be available October 15, 2001 at an estimated street
price of US $6,199. This projector comes with a two-year standard product
warranty and one year of ProXchange service.
