InFocus bolsters collaboration offering with Jupiter acquisition

InFocus Corporation will enter the display wall processor field and bolster its collaboration systems offering with the acquisition of videowall and collaboration specialist Jupiter.

The move comes just after the company announced new CEO Mark Housley. In a prepared statement Housley said: “We know our customers need collaboration technology on their smartphones and tablets, at their desks, in their conference rooms and in their control rooms.

“With one provider offering simple, enterprise-ready solutions that work together seamlessly, we can serve the full set of our customers’ requirements with powerful, integrated solutions. The convergence is inevitable and we intend to lead it.”

Effective immediately, Jupiter Systems becomes an InFocus’ branded product line for control room and enterprise collaboration solutions. All Jupiter employees are now InFocus team members and both the Jupiter product line office in Hayward, and InFocus corporate headquarters in Portland, Oregon will operate business as usual.
