InfoComm 2015: InFocus showcases new LightCast solutions17 June 2015
InFocus is showcasing its LightCast projection technology in its latest conference room, classroom and desktop solutions at InfoComm this week. Products unveiled include Mondopad 2.0, JTouch Whiteboard, Saturn videoconferencing system and a line of 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 touchscreens and a preview of the future in videoconferencing.”
With LightCast technology users can wirelessly cast content from their devices to a LightCast-enabled screen or projector. LightCast devices also include built-in whiteboard tools and a browser. This technology is utilised for the Mondopad 2.0, JTouch Whiteboard and a range of HD projectors.
Mondopad 2.0 expands on the previously Mondopad large-format, all-in-one videoconferencing touchscreen. The collaboration device is for conference rooms, classrooms, and multi-point office. Mondopad 2.0 can pair with a second touchscreen to run dual applications, such as videoconferencing and PowerPoint files on separate screens. The Mondopad 2.0 comes in 57in, 70in and 80in sizes and at InfoComm it will be alongside a 65in JTouch.
The LightCast technology will also be shown in a preview of the IN1118HDlc projector, which is a portable projector with an embedded document reader and video player. The second projector on show is the IN119HDx classroom projector. It is an entry-level solution with 3,200-lumen brightness to suit the ambient light levels and budgets of most schools. The final projector previewed at InfoComm is the IN128HDs, which is a colour-correct SRGB projector for video applications and designers.
For the first time, InFocus will preview its Saturn videoconferencing display, which displays wall-sized, multi-endpoint videoconferencing and content sharing in boardrooms. “InFocus Saturn is the future of how executives will connect with their employees in big, dynamic ways,” said Yu.
