Projector manufacturer InFocus announced the first two models in its new IN5540 series of high-end installation projectors – the 7500 lumen, XGA resolution IN5542 and the 6500 lumen, WXGA resolution IN5544.
Both of these 3LCD projectors cater to the large-venue installation market. The IN5542 and IN5544 offer 7 different lens options with capabilities ranging from ultra-short throw to ultra-long throw. The motorized lens shift can cover a total range of 2.7 screen areas vertically and 2.2 screen areas horizontally. They also have lens memory, making them easily customizable for difficult installations. The projectors can handle 90-degree vertical projection as well.
The lamp and filter are easily accessible for easy maintenance and the four-layer high-efficiency filter is rated for 10,000 hours, making them great units for constant-use applications. The IN5542 and IN5544 began shipping this week.
Projector market research from Pacific Media Associates has shown that high-end, large-venue units have continued to outperform the overall projector market, so timing is right for these new InFocus models.
