“We are very pleased with our work to date with InFocus. Their deep expertise in projection user interfaces, combined with our skills in USB and display connectivity, has yielded benefits to both engineering teams,” said Hamid Farzaneh, DisplayLink president and CEO.

The InFocus collaboration with DisplayLink is an element of InFocus’ long-standing commitment to improving the usability of projection, making it simple to project stunning images whether for business, education, or pleasure.
