WILSONVILLE, OR--InFocus is collaborating with the Plano Independent School District in Plano, Texas to enhance interaction in classrooms by using projectors with built in whiteboard capability.

 “Today, interactive whiteboards in classrooms still have obstacles to overcome, including size, installation and usage. We are pleased to collaborate with the Plano School District to overcome these hurdles and reinvent technology in the classroom as we know it,” noted Bob O’Malley, InFocus’ president and CEO. “We selected the Plano School District as our first beta partner because of their solid reputation as a thought leader in integrating technology into the classroom.”

 According to Jim Hirsch, associate superintendent for Academic and Technology Service at the Plano Independent School District, “The technologies that are most quickly adopted in classrooms are those that allow students to participate and collaborate. InFocus’ interactive projector will be beneficial to both the teachers and students — making everyday learning engaging and fun.”

 InFocus’ interactive projector will be generally available at the end of 2009. Additional information on InFocus’ beta program and its partner network will be announced in the coming months.
