InFocus Corporation Key Developments

InFocus Corporation Introduces LightCast Technology and JTouch with Lightcast

InFocus Corporation introduces its LightCast technology, which enables BYOD connectivity and all-in-one digital whiteboarding and Internet browsing. The company is also launching its first device with the new technology built in, the interactive touchscreen JTouch with LightCast (INF6501c). InFocus' LightCast technology allows people to wirelessly cast content from their Windows, Apple OSX and iOS, and Android devices to a display screen or projector. LightCast devices also offer whiteboard tools, which let users draw, highlight, annotate and capture notes that they can share with anyone via email. Rounding out LightCast's functionality is a Web browser to enable Internet access without being connected to a separate device. InFocus is simultaneously announcing a new interactive display, the 65-inch JTouch with LightCast (IN6501c). InFocus based this five-point touch display on the popular InFocusJTouch display platform, which connects with Windows, Macs and Chromebooks and provides a bright, colorful touch experience that engages audiences and combines interactivity with affordability. With LightCast embedded, JTouch becomes an even more powerful, interactive tool enabling a myriad of options for enhanced collaboration and learning. With LightCast-enabled devices, users can save and share lessons as well as use them again for subsequent classes. This advanced note taking is tangible in business applications as well, with LightCast allowing immediate access to web resources which improves meeting efficiency. InFocus JTouch with LightCast supports edge-to-edge IR touch and Windows 7/8 gestures. It offers integrated stereo speakers for 20W stereo sound along with incredible connectivity including four front-facing USB ports for instant access as well as four HDMI ports, DVI, VGA (HD15 VESA), USB Type-A x 4, 3.5mm stereo audio in, 3.5mm stereo audio out, USB Type-B port for touch screen control. InFocus LightCast technology is also built into the just-released Mondopad 2.0 collaboration system. Using Mondopad's new casting feature one can now connect and display from almost any device for additional idea sharing. While casting to Mondopad, users can also annotate on the display, taking interaction to the next level. The JTouch with LightCast is available directly from InFocus and InFocus resellers for $3,399.

InFocus Corporation Releases Mondopad 2.0

InFocus Corporation released Mondopad 2.0. The new Mondopad enhances the capabilities of the first ever large-format, all-in-one, video conferencing touchscreen collaboration device for the conference room, classroom, distance education center and multi-point office. In addition, Mondopad 2.0 offers new features that make sharing, annotating, archiving and overall collaboration easier, particularly between multiple locations. The InFocus Mondopad is a 57-inch, 70-inch and 80-inch diagonal 1080p, large-format, multi-point touch display that's easy to see anywhere in the room, powered by an on-board PC with open standard technology that's compatible with Microsoft Office and Intel. Mondopad 2.0 offers on-board storage and has a built-in collaboration software suite. Mondopad 2.0 is a SIP/H.323 video calling endpoint that uniquely integrates data presentations, whiteboarding, remote PC viewing, video, casting from tablets or smartphones, and puts interactive data into a video call like never before. With Dual Stream technology, Mondopad users can not only share and view data but can also see video meeting participants, never losing the benefits of face-to-face communication, such as non-verbal cues and body language. Mondopad includes one year of InFocus 121-Basic video calling service, which supports two-way calling with SIP, H.323, H.239, and Microsoft Lync systems. InFocus 121-Premium enables four-way calling. When paired with an InFocus ConX Video Meeting solution [5], users can combine any combination up to 25 different callers using SIP, H.323. Lync, a Web browser and even standard (PSTN) phone lines. Also new to the InFocus Mondopad 2.0 is its ability to pair with a second touchscreen, such as the JTouch, InFocus' large-format touch-enabled digital display, to create an even larger interactive area for file annotation and whiteboarding. With it one can run dual applications, such as a video conferencing and PowerPoint files simultaneously on separate screens. When using dual touch displays, multi-tasking is easy simply swap content from one touchscreen to the other. Microsoft Windows applications run on Mondopad 2.0 in responsive touch mode including Microsoft Office suite, which comes standard. In addition to the video conferencing, dual screen and bring the own device (BYOD) enhancements, Mondopad 2.0 comprises many other features to make collaboration and sharing easier and more powerful. Some additional feature enhancements include: One touch Dropbox cloud-based file storage; Multiple camera support, including InFocus' recommended PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera; Continuous multi-directional whiteboard canvas; Floating whiteboard toolbar; Whiteboard auto shapes function; Enhanced video conferencing services; Updated modern user interface; and Extended audio with optional InFocus Thunder tabletop speakers. Mondopad 2.0 is available for purchase now through InFocus authorized resellers. Mondopad's advertised prices are: 57" diagonal - $5,799; 70" diagonal - $9,799; and 80" diagonal - $16,999.
