Using a new Learn Big education projector from InFocus (Nasdaq: INFS), the industry pioneer, educators are empowered to interact with the class, unencumbered by chalk, markers or wasteful handouts. Today, InFocus introduces the newest projectors in the Learn Big education portfolio, carefully designed for ease of use, reliability, and outstanding visual performance. Anyone who has used a mobile phone or microwave is prepared to use the new IN24 and IN26 digital projectors. Based on the rock solid reliability of InFocus' award-winning X2 and X3 projectors, the new InFocus Learn Big IN24 and IN26, featuring SVGA and XGA resolution, fill a screen or a wall with bright, vivid and crisp images, capturing every detail of a multimedia lesson or presentation.

Extra credit is due for an eye-pleasing form factor that blends into a school library, classroom or the most important school board meeting. After listening to educators, who have long been big fans of projection technology, InFocus incorporated several consumer-driven features into the IN24 and IN26. The projectors are the first in the category to incorporate an LED instant feedback display to communicate with end-users and also include a new, recessed lens to protect the most delicate component of this workhorse technology. And who wouldn't give an A+ grade to a crystal clear display up to 20 feet diagonal?
