As part of a global growth strategy, InFocus adds video wall, control room, and smartphone solutions for end-to-end collaboration 

PORTLAND, Ore. – October 5, 2015 — In support of its plan for substantial growth, InFocus Corporation (www.infocus.com) has acquired video wall and enterprise collaboration innovator Jupiter Systems. Jupiter’s offerings make access to critical visual information simple, secure and reliable, and complement InFocus established ecosystem. The acquisition expands InFocus’ offering to include display wall processor technology, bringing a 360-degree view of operations to any control room, conference room, and mobile device. This acquisition enables InFocus to provide end-to-end collaboration solutions and become the single provider for customers’ collaboration technology needs.

“We know our customers need collaboration technology on their smartphones and tablets, at their desks, in their conference rooms and in their control rooms. With one provider offering simple, enterprise-ready solutions that work together seamlessly, we can serve the full set of our customers’ requirements with powerful, integrated solutions.  The convergence is inevitable and we intend to lead it,” said Mark Housley, InFocus CEO. “Now InFocus can be that one-stop-shop for complete end-to-end solutions.”

Effective immediately, Jupiter Systems, which operates and manufactures in Hayward, CA, becomes an InFocus’ branded product line for control room and enterprise collaboration solutions. All Jupiter employees are now InFocus team members and both the Jupiter product line office in Hayward, and InFocus corporate headquarters in Portland, Oregon will operate business as usual.

InFocus and Jupiter are pioneers in display technology, with InFocus developing and selling the first digital projector and Jupiter creating display wall processing technology. Both companies, each with 30-year tenures, are recognized as leading brands in the display and visual collaboration industries. Pairing the industry leaders provides best-in-class solutions at every size integration and across applications in the classroom, conference room, global enterprise, and public agencies. The cross-pollination of technologies and solutions will extend benefits to customers of every type.

“The acquisition is a major proof point of our determination and investment to ensure that we offer our customers the very best products and services that empower and enhance collaboration,” added Housley. “It makes a lot of sense to combine our talents and expand our products because it provides a comprehensive set of powerful ways for people to connect and share with other people – whether that’s one other person or thousands of others.”
