InFocus Corporation, the industry pioneer in digital projection technology, today
announced that it has partnered with Icron Technologies, the
leading provider of USB extension solutions, to enhance consumers connectivity
options for InFocus’ DisplayLink-enabled projectors

DisplayLink is a
key ease-of-use feature for InFocus projectors, allowing users to “plug and
project” from their PC or MAC via a single USB cable in seconds, eliminating
the need for toggling, bulky VGA cables or adaptors. The new InFocus
DisplayLink Extender modules allow InFocus’ DisplayLink-enabled

experience in USB extension to bring a proven, reliable product to market

distances using standard Cat 5 cabling. The DisplayLink Extender requires
no additional software drivers or external power adapters, making installation

connected up to 330 feet (100 meters) away from the host computer, with no
degradation in image quality or performance.
