A week after InFocus Corporation announced Mark Housley as its new CEO it unveiled plans to acquire collaboration category innovator Jupiter Systems.

Jupiter has been providing robust collaboration solutions since before “collaboration” was a buzz-term and a category leveraged beyond large, global organization. Its recent release of Canvas CRS-4K provides a solution for enterprise, education and other markets looking for huddle-room style collaboration solutions.

InFocus says Jupiter’s offerings will complement its established ecosystem, allowing the projector manufacturer to include wall processor technology and end-to-end collaboration.

“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,’ said Housley in a press release. “Now InFocus can be that one-stop-shop for complete end-to-end solutions.”

The acquisition is effective immediately, according to the press release. All Jupiter employees are now InFocus team members and both the Jupiter product line office in Hayward, Calif., and InFocus corporate headquarters in Portland, Ore., will operate business as usual.
