InFocus is the last surviving big name in American projectors and is likely still the most recognized brand in the industry. A decade ago, InFocus was more than just a brand – people would say “I need an InFocus” when they needed a projector, just as one would ask for a “Kleenex” when wanting a tissue or “Aspirin” when they had a headache. In 2009, publicly traded InFocus was purchased and is now a private company only manufacturing and selling projectors for business, education, and home.
InFocus projectors still remain some of the most highly regarded in the industry. InFocus is one of the dominant manufacturers of business and K-12 projectors, most of which use DLP technology. Although there is a lot more competition out there today, InFocus is still considered a premier brand in projectors.
