LG CineBeam Laser 4K Projector at CES 2019
A short throw, laser show.
If you fancy upsizing your movie viewing to benefit from larger image sizes but don’t have space (or technical know-how), then LG might have a convenient answer.The Korean company is set to unveil its second-generation CineBeam Laser 4K projector (model HU85L) with Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology at CES 2019 where it has already won an Innovation Award. It builds upon the success of LG’s first 4K projector 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 (for when horizontal is the only way to experience a movie!).
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. Move to 7-inches away and the projector produces a much larger and still bright 120-inch image. Simple and efficient to set up, the space-friendly unit provides stunning viewing experiences on a truly cinematic scale.
Delivering 2,500 ANSI lumens and 4K UHD resolution, LG CineBeam Laser 4K ensures exceptionally bright and clear images and superb black level, enhancing the viewer’s sense of immersion. It can also reproduce highly accurate colours courtesy of its wide colour gamut, which further increases the realism of every picture displayed.
Extremely compact, the LG CineBeam Laser 4K is smaller than other leading 4K projectors and has a subtle design that won’t distract or interfere with the viewing experience. The advanced projector offers enhanced visual accuracy with a 12-point keystone adjustment feature, eliminating the image distortion that often affects other UST projectors. LG 4K UHD projector owners will have no shortage of content to watch, as the projector’s webOS 4.5 function offers convenient access to Netflix, Hulu and other 4K streaming services. The device comes equipped with standard connectivity options for USB, Ethernet and HDMI ports, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse, offering endless access to high-quality content.
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.
“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.”
Viewers can 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 favourite 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.
For those that are reluctant to move to a fully installed projector setup, the CineBeam Laser 4K could be the perfect solution, price and availability dependent, of course.
Time to move past the screen size limitations of conventional TV? How do you think this would look in your viewing room?
