InFocus Home IN82 Review

 

The IN82 is a strong option for those who wish to have their theaters designed and installed by professionals.

The InFocus IN82 is overall a solid projector, though its price tag is steep compared to products with similar performance in open distribution. Clearly the IN82 can be a great solution for lights-on parties. It is a strong option for those who wish to...

Ultimate AV: InFocus Play Big IN82 1080p DLP Projector

 

But with the 1080p Play Big IN82 single-chip DLP projector ($5,499), InFocus is ready to step up to the plate. The IN82 is unquestionably a solid hit, but is it a double or a home run?

Bright, crisp image with excellent color, Excellent deinterlacing and scaling, both SD and HD, Exceptional brightness can accommodate large screens or be tamed by the manual iris for smaller ones

Will not reproduce below black on HDMI., Rainbows might be an issue for viewers sensitive to them, No lens shift

Editors note: I rushed to get this review up before leaving for vacation. Some cleanup and minor additions will be done, when I return in a week+

One of the very brightest home theater projectors around ; Excellent overall picture quality ; Very good blacks ; Even better shadow detail, impressive ; Very good "out of the box" performance ; Out of the box color balance is good, better than many ;...

A little bit noisy at full power, but still quieter than most of the DLP models ; Limited placement flexibility ; Significant lens offset, a problem for low ceiling rooms

The IN82 has a lot of appeal. If you want a bright projector that shows no major weaknesses, and projects a first class picture, this is on your short list.

Stunning looks and a Full HD chipset make this projector a formidable new debut

Stylish design ; Good picture quality

Can exaggerate MPEG noise in weak sources ; Runs noisily

Recommended!

InFocus IN82 DLP Projector

 

If InFocus' previous successes in our tests are anything to go by, its first full-HD DLP projector should be most excellent.

Even the HD Ready glories of the previously tested InFocus IN76 and IN78 models scarcely prepared us for the stellar achievement of the company's first full HD offering. We guess you can better the IN82 if money's really no object at all - by spending,...

InFocus has returned with a scintillating Full HD projector, which looks set to give many pricier projectors a major scare

Exceptional performance coupled to fine spec, styling and ease-of-use – and not even particularly expensive, given what it can do. A stunning buy

Scintillating performance for a very fair price a steal

All the familiar InFocus strengths, but with an even better picture

Off-air TV doesn't look so great, but that's fair enough at this price

The IN82 is InFocus's first locally available 1080p home theatre projector. It features a new Texas Instruments DarkChip3 DLP chipset, a new design and settings for ISF calibration.

Outlook The US projector specialist has finally caught up with its Taiwanese and Japanese competitors by releasing the AU$9,999 Play Big IN82. However, at such high pricing, it will tough for the company to recapture lost ground. To make matters worse,...

The superbly spendy IN82 is made by projector specialists InFocus and is capable of throwing out a full-HD image on any wall in your house with no discernable lack in quality, thanks largely to a manual adjustable iris that can sacrifice brightness for...

Sexy, black styling and excellent picture quality. Manual adjusting iris

Noisy fan, and have you seen the price

An excellent DLP projector that throws out high quality images like we throw out metaphors, only missing out on top marks because of the weighty price tag.

Product Specifications

The Play Big IN82 is InFocus' first Full-HD 1080p DLP digital home cinema projector. The IN82 utilizes the DarkChip3 DLP chipset by Texas Instruments, technology that is unsurpassed in its ability to deliver deep black levels, pure whites, and subtle grayscale details. Also, the native 4000:1 contrast can be boosted to a maximum 12000:1 by activating the onboard iris. The IN82 is bright enough to deliver film-standard, D6500K color accuracy in nearly any theater, even with ambient light or daytime viewing. Producing video optimized brightness up to 1500 Max ANSI lumens this projector is spectacular and offers the flexibility to reduce brightness to improve black level performance in a dedicated home theater without dimming the picture. The Play Big IN82 is virtually future-proof thanks to onboard HDMI 1.3 inputs with Deep Color support. This new HDMI standard can display up to 1.07 billion colors for a smooth picture without color band artifacts. The IN82 also hosts comprehensive connectivity & I/O, including DVI, and PC input, screen triggers, RS232, and an IR repeater input. (Deep Color requires HDMI 1.3 compatible media player & source material.) True video magic projected by the Play Big IN82 is thanks in part to Pixelworks DNX 10-bit video processing. This is the same outstanding processing, de-interlacing, and scaling performance as the award-winning InFocus Play Big IN7x series. InFocus Color Gamut Calibrator and ISF Day & Night presets allow for worry-free optimized performance at all times. Installers can "lock in" these ideal calibration settings for clients - an excellent value-add opportunity.
