InFocus IN78EX DLP Projector

Filed under: Projectors

InFocus debuted their new Play Big IN78EX DLP projector which is enhanced by Pixelworks' DNX video processing technology.

Everything has been tweaked - even the fully-featured remote features a simple keypad and a new patent-pending flashlight feature, direct source access, programmable presets and more (hey, we just ask for a backlight and direct input selection!)

The internal level recognizes when the IN78EX is ceiling-mounted, automatically flipping the projected image. This seems extremely convenient and does a nice job of avoiding the "upside down menu configuration" dance we all go through when setting up a new projector for the first time.

[124_2485] An icon-based menu allows you to quickly scroll and select your settings in your choice of 12 languages - without interrupting video playback.

Five user-selectable video sources enable impressive connectivity with a full range of devices, including VCRs, DVDs, component and RGB HDTV, EDTV or your game console of choice.

The IN78EX uses Pixelworks' DNX video-processing technology.
