A handful of all-in-one home-theater projectors have hit the market over the last 18 months, and InFocus jumps into this interesting category with the InFocus Play Big IN1, an inexpensive DLP projector with an integrated DVD player and speaker to output sound. While the info on the unit is a little vague, InFocus says that they are also looking into having an iPod dock for playing back iPod videos, to go along with the DVD player "dock" that attaches to the bottom of the projector.

Here are the details so far:

  • Price: $499 (subject to change)
  • Availability: Spring 2007
  • Resolution: 480i resolution
  • Docking stations: potentials include a DVD player, a gaming station, and a video iPod station
  • Audio: a built-in speaker
