InFocus pushes out IN3100 Series multimedia projectors


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.

Sitting neatly between the IN1100 and IN5100 Series of projectors, these units features both DisplayLink and HDMI connections, meaning you should (with the help of an adapter here and there) be able to connect it to pretty much any PC or AV product…

Are you an Epson projector affectionado? Do you have an irrational compulsion to own the complete Epson set? Do you spend your weekend mornings meeting up with other “Epson-heads” to show off your machines and compare lumens? Maybe you even push your kids into following your Epson hobby too, getting them to live out your own failed Epson projector dreams? If so, you were probably pretty happy this morning when Epson unveiled four new projectors. I’ve got some further good news for you – but not for your “Epson widow” wife – they’ve announced yet another projector… the EH-DM2.

CES 2008: Microvision's diddy mobile projector the Show

The trouble with watching video on mobile phones is that their screens don't tend to be big enough to let you get any idea of what is really happening. So all you get is a poor reproduction of the footage – some of which is now starting to approach decent quality – which you have shot.

One solution is to offer mini projectors that can hook up to mobiles and then display the images on any light coloured wall you might have handy.

At CES Microvision is touting a prototype of a ‘pico projector’ it calls ‘Show.’ It is basically a handheld, battery powered unit which can project video from everything from your mobile to your iPod. The unit itself is tiny – it is just 7mm thick – and has a battery life of over two hours.
