InFocus Play Big IN82

InFocus today unveiled what it believes is its best single-chip projector to date. Its Play Big IN82 achieves the native 1080p needed for Blu-Ray and HD DVD but also incorporates a newer DarkChip3 image processor that extends the contrast ratio; while static contrast is strong at 4,000:1, the ratio can climb up to 12,000:1 with dynamic adjustments from the iris. Color is further given help through 10-bit color management and HDMI 1.3 input with deep color for sources with subtler color grades. Skilled home theater enthusiasts and pro calibrators can also fine-tune settings and establish separate daytime and nighttime presets.

Other touches applied to the IN82 for its high-end audience include a 1,500-lumen brightness strong enough tto run during the day, improved image scaling, DVI and VGA input for computers, and both IR and serial links that integrate the projector into an automated home theater setup. InFocus plans to ship its new flagship unit in September at a relatively low $5,499 price through dealers.
