professionals everywhere, be they on the road or running from room

At the INFOCOMM 2000 Show opening today in Anaheim, California,

Projectors, delivering, respectively, 1300 and 1100 ANSI lumens
of brightness. The development of the new U2-1130 XGA digital projector
marks another milestone in PLUS Corporation's history of presentation

microportable digital projector in the sub-6lb. category.

and finer image quality resolution in a microportable projector
has been achieved by combining the capabilities of Digital Light
Processing_ technology by Texas Instruments with the unique technical
expertise of PLUS and its patented PLUS Optical Engine.

for truly mobile communications professionals with the debut of
the world's first sub-3lb. series of digital projectors at INFOCOMM
2000, we are equally committed to meeting the enhanced user requirements
of professionals who work in other room-to-room and mobile environments,"
PLUS Corporation President Tom Oishi said today. "The enhanced
and expanded U2 Series delivers a wider range of configurations
for professionals to choose from. The higher outputs of brightness
from the U2-1130 and U2-1110 projectors, together with already-established
superior image quality PLUS digital projectors are known for, means
that we can deliver new level of quality performance and value for
professionals who work in room-to-room and mobile environments."
According to Sherel Horsley, Senior Vice President and Product Manager
at the Texas Instruments Digital Imaging Division, "This announcement
of enhancements to the PLUS U2 Series, together with their simultaneous
announcement of the breakthrough PLUS U3 Series of projectors,
gives PLUS an extraordinarily attractive product line-up in this

if it will prove a winner."
