InFocus will showcase 30- and 40-inch LCD monitors, and a 61-inch ultra-thin rear projection display at InfoComm.
InFocus also introduced the newest meeting room projector, the InFocus LP(TM)600. The new projector includes, InFocus LitePort(TM), an embedded PC-Free Playback system that allows users to easily project .jpg images from a USB flash drive without a computer or CD drive.

InFocus also provides the InFocus LitePort Utility, which is software that can be used to easily convert documents and grids into high-quality .jpg images with one click in order to load on most industry standard USB flash drives.
InFocus has always taken a leading role in providing products and services that are based on a unique understanding of customer needs. The InFocus LP600 was developed based on extensive customer research that found that ease-of-use is a top concern for users; therefore, it includes an entire suite of user-friendly features including an LCD display window that communicates ongoing status information, color-coded cables, simplified keypads, menus and remote controls.
