Latest Telepresence and Visual Collaboration News:
At InfoComm 2015 InFocus showcases latest ways to connect, collaborate and share ideas
InFocus Corporation (www.infocus.com) will showcase its latest solutions for redefining the conference room, classroom and desktop June 17-19 at InfoComm booth 2017. As it has for nearly 30 years, InFocus will unveil and demonstrate technology, products and services designed to connect people and let them share their ideas across the table, office or globe. New and coming products on display will include: Mondopad 2.0, LightCast technology in projectors and the JTouch Whiteboard with LightCast interactive display, Saturn video conferencing display system and new high-performance HD projectors.
"InFocus is the pioneer of projection and continues to lead the industry in firsts for enhancing communication, learning and understanding," said Raymond Yu, InFocus President. "This year we will be showing solutions for connecting and sharing information easily, affordably and often, including new technology that allows you to display content from almost any personal device, the latest in affordable projection, the enhanced Mondopad 2.0 touchscreen collaboration system, video phones, tablets, interactive touch screens and a preview of the future in video conferencing."
InFocus' new LightCast technology allows people to wirelessly cast content from their devices - including Android, Windows, Apple iOS and OSX - to a LightCast-enabled display screen or projector. LightCast devices also include built-in whiteboard tools and a Web browser to enable Internet without connecting to a separate device. InFocus will show how people can use LightCast on its Mondopad 2.0, interactive JTouch Whiteboard with LightCast (INF6501c) as well as yet-to-be-released projectors.
Mondopad 2.0, which has LightCast embedded, is an expanded re-boot of the award-winning Mondopad, the first large-format, all-in-one video conferencing touchscreen collaboration device for the conference room, classroom, distance education center and multi-point office. It has new features that make sharing, annotating, archiving and overall collaboration easier, particularly between multiple locations. Specifically, Mondopad 2.0 can pair with a second touchscreen, such as the InFocus JTouch a large-format touch-enabled digital display, to run dual applications, such as video conferencing and PowerPoint files simultaneously on separate screens. InFocus will have Mondopad 2.0 paired with a 65-inch JTouch and will also have its 80-inch Mondopad on display. InFocus offers the Mondopad in 57-inch, 70-inch and 80-inch sizes.
Within the category it created nearly 30 years ago, InFocus will show its new LightCast technology in projection with a preview of the IN1118HDlc projector. The IN1118HDlc is an ultra-mobile projector designed for the road warrior. It has embedded document readers, video player and all the tools for projection on-the-go.
InFocus will also preview its latest affordable, classroom-optimized IN119HDx projector. At less than $700, this new projector features 3200-lumen brightness and 15,000:1 contrast ratio to fit school and government budgets and the ambient-light levels of most classrooms. The IN119HDx offers full 1080p HD resolution, can project an image size of up to 299 inches (nearly 25-feet diagonal), it is 3D ready and features VGA and HDMI inputs.
Rounding out the projector category, the IN128HDs, which is a color-correct SRGB projector ideal for video applications and designers, will also be previewed. InFocus will demonstrate the IN128HDs alongside an SRGB-accurate monitor so you can compare its demonstrable SRGB color accuracy.
As it has previously at InfoComm, InFocus will demonstrate its affordable and powerful hand-held Q Tablets and the MVP100 video phone. As workspaces become more dynamic -- from traditional offices to open floor plans -- meeting spaces and conference rooms with display and videoconferencing technology become the primary place for generating and sharing ideas. However, the demand for these rooms are at a premium. With the MVP100 Video Phone face-to-face video calling is no longer restricted to the conference room and takes no longer than the time it takes to dial a phone.
For the first time ever, InFocus will preview its Saturn multi-configuration video conferencing display system that displays wall-sized, multi-endpoint video conferencing and simultaneous content sharing in an executive boardroom, office or headquarters.
"InFocus Saturn is the future of how executives will connect with their employees in big, dynamic ways," said Yu.
Using multiple configurable ultra-narrow-bezel HD displays, users can customize Saturn for any wall size. What sets Saturn apart from a basic video wall is an integrated video conferencing multipoint control unit (MCU) server that allows users to instantly configure and change each input image to any number of the displays. This allows in-room participants to focus on whatever content they want at any given time, such as a data or video feed from a remote participant. This unique ability to create a user-defined layout and to have control from all kinds of devices makes Saturn ideal for telepresence, data collaboration, multi-stream viewing, control room, distance education and training.
InFocus invites InfoComm 2015 attendees to see each of these products and technologies at booth 2017. InFocus will be giving away prizes and products Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at the booth and will also award its authorized resellers EasyMoney cash prizes.
