InFocus exiting digital projector business

WAIT WHAT???

As someone in the AV/IT higher education world for over 25 years, this is so hard to believe!  Going back to when InFocus purchased ASK Proxima, I have been a big fan of InFocus and their projectors.  At one point in my career, I attempted to try another manufacturer, but after three years and a 90% failure rate, I ended up reinstalling the older InFocus projectors we replaced.

This is a very sad day, very sad!
