A Brighter Solution from InFocus

A Brighter Solution from InFocus

Stunning presentations made easy with new Work Big projector

New Zealand, September 28, 2006 — Average presenters deliver content while talented presenters captivate audiences by sharing big ideas. From boardrooms to worship facilities, projection technology is the essential ingredient for flooding ordinary walls with clear, bright images and transforming meetings or other presentations into dynamic, interactive experiences. InFocus® (Nasdaq: INFS), the leader in delivering big picture experiences, today debuted the Work Big IN42, a new high-performance projector that combines powerful projection, easy installation and versatile options.

The InFocus Work Big IN42 offers the exceptional quality and ease-of-use features that are unique to InFocus products, while bringing a new class of performance and power to the Work Big line of projectors. Brighter, quieter and extremely user-friendly, the Work Big IN42, with the latest in LCD technology and XGA resolution, allows users to get the point across in a fully lit room without distractions. Dimming the lights can often put an audience to sleep; however, with 3500 lumens the IN42 cuts through the light and allows for a fully lit, engaging show. Plus, the IN42 will never exceed a whisper quiet 32 dB, so the attention of the audience is focused on stunning images, not distracting noise.

Designed with the IT department and consumers in mind, the Work Big IN42 comes equipped with a networking solution allowing administrators to check and control settings on their network of projectors using a web interface. Also, ProjectAbility, InFocus’ exclusive design and commitment to ease of use, is incorporated throughout every aspect of the Work Big IN42 projector. An LED display provides instant feedback to answer user questions and show the working status; a keypad gives access to more than 90 percent of projector functions; and user-requested features like color coded cables for easy set-up make them essential business tools.

“InFocus continues its reputation of providing innovative projection solutions to our customers and partners with the introduction of the new high-performance installation projector. The IN42 is essential for today’s business environments, higher education settings and worship facilities,” said Scott Ballantyne, chief marketing officer, InFocus.

The IN42’s design has the look and feel of an installation projector, with a compact, industrial design that will add class and functionality to any large conference room or auditorium. In addition, the Work Big IN42 has a recessed lens to avoid possible damage and a pop-up door that allows for manual lens shift and zoom/focus access.

This new projector from InFocus also features presenter-friendly remote upgrades. A presenter’s remote with slide advance and a full-featured remote with a laser pointer, slide advance, auto-image and a host of other features maintain seamless transitions for presenters of any technological ability.

Based on the reliability of the high performing Work Big LP840, the IN42 is more dependable and user-friendly than other projectors in its class. With a 3,000-hour lamp life, the Work Big IN42 produces a bright, crisp image that won’t dull quickly.


The InFocus Work Big IN42 projector is available for $4,999 + gst. For more information about InFocus Work Big and complementary products, please visit
