Front projector industry pioneer InFocus will release three front video projectors for the consumer segment from its Play Big projector series in the first quarter of 2006. Included will be enhanced and high definition models using the latest DLP technology.


The Play Big IN72 will target mainstream consumers. Prices at US$1,299, the projector will feature 480p enhanced definition. The Play Big IN74 is for custom dealers looking to magnify customers’ large-screen viewing experiences including gaming, entertaining and movie nights. The IN74 will provide native 16:9 resolution in the United States as well as in Wide PAL countries. The projector will be priced at US$1,699. For the higher-end of the market, the Big IN76 is priced at US$2,499 and provides native 720p high-definition resolution.


According to Pacific Media Associates, the worldwide market for front projectors is expected to steadily grow from US$6.5 billion in 2004 to US$9.0 billion in 2007, representing a compound annual growth rate of 11%.


In the third quarter of this year, InFocus had revenues of US$130.3 million and negative gross margins. Although InFocus’ shipments were up 6.6% on year through the first nine months of this year, its revenues were down 14.2%.


According to a filing with the SEC, the company is currently transitioning its OEM projector business to China-based South Mountain Technologies (SMT), a 50-50 owned joint venture between InFocus and TCL.


Approximately 70% of InFocus’ revenues currently come from the US market.
