IN FOCUS REDUCES PRICES ACROSS PRODUCT LINE; BREAKTHROUGH VALUES DESIGNED TO BROADEN MARKET

 TUALATIN, Ore., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In Focus Systems(R) (NASDAQ: INFS) announced that today it lowered prices of eight of its industry-leading liquid crystal display (LCD) projection panels, self- contained projection systems and presentation management systems. The reductions in suggested retail prices, ranging from 6 to 25 percent, are a move to make superior price/performance LCD presentation solutions more accessible to a broader base of users.
 The products affected by the price reductions range from the economical 1600LC panel, currently the best-selling color LCD projection panel in American education, to the System 6000, a self-contained, active matrix projection system targeted to high-end multimedia presentations.
 "In Focus is a leader in innovative LCD technology and has the industry's most comprehensive LCD projection product line," said Andy Leonard, vice president of sales and marketing at In Focus Systems. "Technology enhancements and increased volume sales now make it possible for us to become even more competitive with our pricing structure. This is a major change we've wanted to do, in order to dramatically increase the number of potential users we can reach with more affordable presentation products."
 Qualified educational institutions will continue to receive sizable discounts, in addition to the list price reductions, for In Focus products purchased through authorized education resellers.
 As part of the strategy to improve the price/performance of its products, In Focus has also enhanced its TVT-3000 active matrix, full- motion video panel by expanding the panel's palette from 262,144 colors to more than 1.4 million, a fivefold increase.
 In addition, In Focus now bundles LiteTools(TM) software, a $495 value, with its LiteShow II(TM) electronic slide system. The four- pound, portable LiteShow II system with LiteTools software lets users easily create, edit and present any mix of DOS, Microsoft Windows or Macintosh images for presentation with any In Focus LCD panel.
 The price reductions, effective Jan. 14, are listed below.
