LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its competitiveness in 4K UHD home projectors with the HU80K series, its first 4K UHD portable projector.
Traditionally, projectors that support 4K images tended to be heavy, expensive and cumbersome to install in the home. LG engineers and designers took on the challenge of downsizing the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality and came up with a premium device that is half the size of competing 4K projectors. LG's 4K UHD projector promises a great cinematic experience thanks to its 4K picture quality and portable size, meaning that the movie environment can be created in any room of the house at any time.
The projector can create a 150-inch screen at an amazing 2,500 lumens, making this LG's brightest projector. What's more, the LG 4K UHD projector also supports HDR content (HDR 10).
The projector's portable size and upright design is made possible by the mirrorless I-shaped engine which allows the projector to show images whether it's placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling. With a carrying handle and Auto Cord feature, owners may never want to mount the LG 4K UHD projector. What's more, the Mirror Reflector can be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away. Two 7W speakers deliver a cinematic audio experience without the need for external speakers or a soundbar.
The projector's webOS 3.5 smart TV interface can access popular online streaming services offering 4K content. And standard connectivity options include ports for USB, Ethernet and HDMI, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse.
Also on display at CES will be LG's latest version of its portable and convenient MiniBeam Projector (model PF50K), featuring webOS 3.5 and Full HD resolution.
