Whether you like it or not, the responsibilities of an IT person can also bleed into areas that seem like they should be perfomed by an AV person. Though I'm not sure how many companies actually do video conferencing, I occasionally hear about products that are targeted at such apps. InFocus just told us about its LP500, an upgradeable meeting room projector that features native SVGA resolution and 2000 lumens of brightness. Along with the LP500's standard computer, video and audio inputs, an optional module offers connectivity options for multimedia functionality like viewing DVDs and HDTV. In settings where the light conditions allow, the projector can be adjusted to project at 1600 lumens in conservation mode. The conservation mode setting extends the life of the lamp and reduces the audible fan sound by up to 2 decibels. The LP500 is now available for around $3,499 and comes with a two-year standard product warranty and one year of service. And, when the boss is out of the office, you can use it to play computer games.
