Portland, OR – September 19, 2017 — InFocus Corporation (www.infocus.com), a leading provider of display solutions for visualization and collaboration, will provide the first public showcase for the Jupiter Control 1000 Series at Almo Professional A/V’s Fall E4 AV Tour, North America’s largest professional audio visual distributor with global reach. The event will provide resellers, integrators and consultants the opportunity to discover their own “Lightbulb Moment” during the award-winning E4 AV Tour, coming to New York on September 19 and Irvine, California on October 3.

The Jupiter Control 1000 Series (C1000) is a cost-effective range of 4K display wall processors featuring the award-winning Canvas collaborative visualization software platform. Ideal for smaller installations, Control 1000 processors come fully pre-configured as stand-alone display wall processors with high-performance hardware that can decode up to eight IP streams and support up to 10 direct video connections. InFocus Jupiter Control 1000 processors can be used as a stand-alone solution driving a single video wall or integrated into a fully networked enterprise solution that is managed by the Canvas platform, enabling robust collaboration between video walls, operators, ancillary displays, and even mobile devices. The Jupiter Control 1000 is the latest 4K video processor from InFocus and offers exceptional performance in a cost-effective, space-efficient solution.

“InFocus is proud to debut the Control 1000 at Almo’s E4 AV Tour,” said Brady O. Bruce, InFocus CMO. “Almo is one of our biggest distributors, and we are happy to support them by showcasing the latest in our Jupiter by InFocus line of display wall processors. The Control 1000 offers our partners and customers a fully-featured, affordable 4K video wall solution that’s a perfect match for so many projects. We are so happy to partner with Almo and launch this product into the market.”

“The E4 AV Tour has become a popular location for our manufacturing partners to roll out new products because of the incredible exposure and personalized time available to those who attend the event,” explained Melody Craigmyle, vice president of marketing for Almo Professional A/V. “The InFocus brand is always going to garner great attention at E4. We look forward to having our attendees get a first-look at the Control 1000, available first through Almo. This debut serves as a testament to both our strong relationship with InFocus and to the quality of resellers and integrators who come to the E4 events.” 

The Jupiter Control 1000 Series processors ship with Windows 10 for easy deployment within any environment and will run Windows applications directly on the processor to utilize the full pixel resolution of the video wall. Capable of ingesting video and other visual information from any IP encoded source, direct video connection, or Windows 10 ready application, the Control 1000 is an extremely powerful, yet affordable controller for running graphic intensive applications with built-in hardware redundancy for mission-critical applications.

In addition to Windows 10, the Control 1000 also ships with the InFocus Jupiter Canvas 5.3 collaborative visualization software. The combined products offer seamless access to a consolidated, visually precise display of business intelligence in a user’s network.

The Control 1000 is the latest 4K video processor in the Jupiter product line and is capable of decoding up to five non-HDCP 4K signals. It also supports up to four non-HDCP 4K outputs on a single CPU chassis.

The InFocus Jupiter Control 1000 is available through Almo Professional. To learn more, visit https://www.infocus.com/products/jupiter-control1000.
