 IN FOCUS, BARCO SIGN MAJOR OEM AGREEMENT
 TUALATIN, Ore., April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- To expand international


sales of its new portable electronic data projectors, In Focus Systems(R) Inc. (NASDAQ: INFS) today announced an OEM agreement with Barco nv, a Belgian manufacturer and distributor of video projection systems. Under terms of the agreement, Barco will private-label In Focus Systems' color LCD projectors as the Barco BD300 and BD330. The products will be sold through Barco dealers and distributors in Europe and other markets outside of North America.
 "We selected Barco as a marketing partner for our line of LCD data projectors because of their expertise in marketing advanced display systems through qualified reseller channels," said Andy Leonard, vice president of Marketing and Sales at In Focus. "We believe that Barco will be a long-term partner for In Focus as we continue our efforts to develop and market innovative LCD projectors on a worldwide basis."
 In Focus markets a similar projection system under the LitePro(TM) name on a worldwide basis. The LitePro series of data projectors was introduced in October 1991. These portable projection systems integrate advanced data projection technology and LCD technology in a self-contained projector with built-in quality light source and optics. Weighing only 19 pounds, the LitePro full-color LCD projector connects either to a PC or a Macintosh computer for live presentations. LiteProLS adds a built-in LiteShow II(TM) presentation system to capture, store and organize full-color, computer-generated images, eliminating the need for a host computer. LiteProLS includes a remote control unit that allows presenters to create and direct presentations from anywhere in a room.
 Barco nv is a Belgian-based company, active in three main areas: visualization, automation and graphics systems. Barco Projection Systems, one of the major product groups within the Barco holding, has since 1981 been active in the development, manufacturing and marketing of large screen displays for a wide variety of applications, and it is recognized worldwide as a forerunner and market leader in this field.
 In Focus Systems fulfills a broad range of presentation needs with a complete line of innovative products based on LCD technology, offering the best price/performance value in the industry. The company was founded in October 1986 to develop, manufacture and market information display products. The company shipped its first product, an LCD projection panel, in February 1987 and introduced the industry's first true color panel in October 1989. The company, which has won awards for its leading-edge technology, designs and assembles its proprietary LCD products at its Oregon facility.
