As with the Taxan projector, for instance, it allows it to do a passable job of displaying video clips. Now you won't be watching full length features or recorded TV programmes on it - it maxes out at a measly 15 frames per second - but it's just enough to get the idea across. More important, perhaps, is that it's an absolute doddle to set up. You don't even need to have the software preinstalled on your PC - you simply point your browser at the LiteShow II's embedded web server and click a link to download and install software on a local laptop or PC.
Once done it's very easy to get projecting. The LiteShow manager software takes care of everything without fuss, facilitating the setup of wireless encryption (WEP, WPA and WPA2 are all supported), allowing you to use either infrastructure or ad-hoc networking modes and controlling screen resolution switching, should the need arise.
Partner it with the new IN35W projector, however, and you won't need to do this - it's the perfect match for the LiteShow II. Sitting at the high end of Infocus' business projector range, it boasts an impressively high 1,280 x 800 native resolution and although this doesn't sound that high, in the world of business data projection it's verging on the exotic. Most business projectors below a grand, even these days, are stuck on 1,024 x 768 or lower, and this when most budget laptops come with screens at least 1,280 x 800, means that you'll almost always end up having to switch resolutions if you want a crisp, clean projector display. With the IN35W there's none of this fussing about.
