InFocus Revives ScreenPlay Projectors

InFocus Corp. announced the revival of its ScreenPlay line of projectors with the introduction of the SP8602. The new home theater projector features native 1080p resolution, a 30,000:1 maximum contrast ratio, and video-optimized 1,300 lumens.

InFocus Corp. announced the revival of its ScreenPlay line of projectors with the introduction of the SP8602. The new home theater projector features native 1080p resolution and produces deep blacks and vibrant colors, says the company. Offering the latest performance optics, a 30,000:1 maximum contrast ratio, and video-optimized 1,300 lumens, the SP8602 aims to recreate a cinematic experience, according to InFocus officials.

"When we decided to build on the tradition of the InFocus ScreenPlay series, we knew that we had to make this projector one of our best home theater models yet," said Benjamin Joy, product line director at InFocus, in a statement.

The ScreenPlay 8602 is an upgrade from 480p, 720p, and older model 1080p projectors. Featuring Texas Instruments' DLLP DarkChip technology with BrilliantColor, it displays varying shades of blacks and more than one billion colors. Pixelworks DNX 10-bit video processing allows the SP8602 to deliver playback of film and video content, including proprietary motion engine with 120 Hz support.

Other features include a centered lens with lens shifts (+5/-30 percent vertical and +/-15 percent horizontal) that can beam an image up to 300 inches; automatic ceiling detection that can flip the image when necessary; and image warping to adjust the picture on imperfect surfaces, and produce square images.

According to InFocus, the SP802's outer design offers the option of interchangeable "skins" to match theater or living room dé cor. Skins options include matte black, matte white, glossy black, walnut, or pre-primed for custom installations. An integrated cable management system helps streamline cables, while HD connectivity provides a suite of analog and digital connectivity, including onboard HDMI 1.3 support.

The ScreenPlay 8602 is scheduled to be available this month.
