Back in September 2009, I mentioned the new InFocus SP8602 home theater projector and at the time, InFocus was saying the projector would ship in October. The projector never shipped for one reason or another in 2009. InFocus has now announced that the SP8602 projector is shipping.
The projector has the Texas Instruments DLP DarkChip with BrilliantColor and is capable of showing more than 1 billion colors. It also features a Pixelworks DNX 10-bit video processor with support for refresh rates up to 120Hz. Resolution for the SP8602 is up to 1080p and it has several features that make finding a mounting location easier. The maximum contrast ratio is 30,000:1 and it has 1300 lumens of brightness.
The lens is centered and has manual shift of +5% to -30% in the vertical plane and +/- 15% horizontally. The projector is capable of throwing an image up to 300-inches wide and it features image warping to adjust the picture for ideal visuals on surfaces that aren’t perfect. The projector also has optional skins to change the color to match the room décor and one skin is paintable. InFocus is still mum on the pricing leaving the cost up to its dealer network.
