IN FOCUS ENTERS WORKSTATION MARKET WITH PORTABLE, HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR
 LCD PROJECTION PANEL; TARGETS WORKGROUPS, WORKSTATION APPLICATIONS
 TUALATIN, Ore., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- In Focus Systems(R) Inc. (NASDAQ: INFS) today announced the 7600WS, the first liquid crystal display (LCD) color projection panel compatible with major workstation platforms and applications.
 Weighing only 7.5 pounds, the 7600WS combines portability with 1024 x 768 resolution and a full 24,000-color palette. When placed on an overhead projector and connected with a single cable directly to the video port of workstations with resolutions up to 1152 x 900, the panel projects workstation software in full color onto a screen or wall.
 It is compatible with the most widely used workstations, including models from Sun Microsystems, Digital Equipment Corp., HP/Apollo, IBM, NeXT and Silicon Graphics Indigo, without requiring third-party add-on cards.
 The new panel is also compatible with high-resolution displays for Apple Macintosh computers as well as XGA, Super VGA and VGA personal computer graphics.
 The 7600WS projection panel provides high-resolution and full-color capability, which are essential for projecting the complex images of computer-aided design (CAD) and 3-D modeling applications.
 "The 7600WS offers workstation users a high-quality portable solution for projecting high-resolution graphics and text from UNIX software," commented Andy Leonard, vice president of marketing and sales for In Focus Systems Inc. "This is the first alternative to expensive and cumbersome three-gun projectors and large monitors. Other LCD panels are limited to 640 x 480 resolution and require third-party cards, which reduces the graphic resolution to unacceptable levels for training, presentations and demonstrations of workstation software."
 The panel features built-in loop-through so the user can see the image on the monitor and projection screen simultaneously, on-screen, set-up menus, push-button rear-projection mode for sophisticated rear-projection installations and a remote control for image adjustments.
 "Using the 7600WS for our software demonstrations offers tremendous cost and time savings compared with renting traditional three-gun projectors, which require a trained technician to set up and cost nearly $1,000 a day to rent," said Michael Barton, sales engineer for Unify Corp., a manufacturer of application development software for Sun and other workstations, who participated in beta testing of the panel. "It's very easy to set up, and we are impressed with its resolution and image quality."
 By using the latest generation of its patented TSTN(R) (Triple Super Twisted Nematic) LCD technology, In Focus is able to develop an LCD panel with the exceptionally high resolution and broad color spectrum required for workstation applications. The flexibility of TSTN technology also allows In Focus to manufacture and ship the 7600WS in quantity at a competitive price point.
 The 7600WS has a suggested retail price of $8,995 (U.S.) and is scheduled to ship in September 1992. It will be available from workstation value-added resellers and authorized audio-visual dealers worldwide.
 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 in the industry. The company was founded in October 1986 to develop, manufacture and market innovative 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.
