They’re all rather impressive too – one range are ultrabright, one range are deathly quiet, and there’s a selection of remarkably short-throw models that can project a 74″ picture on a screen just one metre away…

InFocus continues to push out business-friendly projectors with the launch of three new models in its IN3100 range. You know what, I wouldn’t mind seeing one of these sitting in my front room.
