LG Electronics is set to unveil its second-generation CineBeam Laser 4K projector (model HU85L) with Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology at CES 2019. The CES 2019 Innovation Award winner builds upon the success of LG’s first 4K projector (model HU80K) and continues to stand out from the crowd with its minimal space requirement and compact design that can project stunningly sharp 4K images on practically any flat surface – a wall, floor or ceiling.
With UST technology, LG CineBeam Laser 4K can be placed a little more than 2 inches from the wall to project a 90-inch diagonal image. Placed 7 inches away, the projector produces a much larger 120-inch image.
Delivering 2,500 ANSI lumens and 4K UHD resolution, LG CineBeam Laser 4K ensures exceptionally bright and clear images and superb black level. LG model HU85L can reproduce highly accurate colours courtesy of its wide colour gamut, which further increases the realism of every picture displayed. LG’s projector also provides plenty of content options, enabling users to stream movies and shows from their favourite services while USB, Ethernet and HDMI provide more connectivity choices.
The compact projector can be easily moved and adjusted for any environment while retaining cinematic scale quality. The LG CineBeam Laser 4K is smaller than other leading 4K projectors with an advanced projector offers enhanced visual accuracy with a 12-point keystone adjustment feature, eliminating the image distortion that often affects other UST projectors.
The LG CineBeam Laser 4K brings maximum user convenience through the inclusion of AI technology which enables customers to use voice commands to access the natural language processing capabilities of LG’s AI solution, ThinQ. Viewers can actually control the operation of the projector by saying, “turn off projector after the movie has finished” or narrow the content to view by telling the projector to “play yoga videos on YouTube”.
Viewers can access a list of movies starring their favorite actors then select the content by speaking into the included Magic Remote. The Magic Remote also recognizes gestures and features backlit buttons for easy navigation which turn on automatically when motion is detected.
“The new CineBeam Laser projector marries spectacular 4K viewing experience with the convenience of AI technology,” said Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division. “There is no other product like this on the market, illustrating how LG continues to deliver unique value to consumers.”
