Infocus 61md10 preview

October 8, 2004

Announced at this years CEDIA expo, the Infocus 61md10 offers something a little different in large screen displays. With the average price of a 61” plasma hovering around 10k, the 61md10 retail price of $8,999 (street price likely sub 8k), is well worth a look for anyone in the market for a large home theater display or media room television, for that matter.

The 61md10 is part of a new line of DLP rear projection, high definition televisions from Infocus. At just under 7” deep, Infocus has managed to fit a full resolution rear HD2 projector in a space that, up until now, was unheard of. Infocus has garnered a large share of the DLP front projection business lately, with their 7200 series projectors. These new ultra-thin displays share much of that same technology.

Among the several things that set these new “microdisplays” apart from plasma’s are the obvious cost savings, the ability to change the lamp, extending the life of the unit, and last but not least offering full HDTV resolution, in a size to price ratio that plasma technology isn’t likely to surpass in the foreseeable future.
